LIGHTER. MORE POWERFUL. EVEN MORE FUN.
First, let’s do the numbers.
The CRF300L is 4kg lighter, thanks to its new frame and tapered aluminium swingarm, which you’ll notice the moment you change direction, on or off-road. The larger capacity single-cylinder engine produces an extra 1.9kW power with 4Nm more torque – which you’ll feel when you tap open the throttle – and now features an Assist/Slipper Clutch. Ground clearance is increased, and the riding position is tailored for complete control, with a slim fuel tank and seat, contoured for comfort and easy ground reach. A Gear Position indicator for the dash and an aggressive new headlight design are the smart finishing touches.
READY FOR WORK AND PLAY
The CRF300L draws DNA from the incredible CRF450R and CRF450RX competition bikes.
So it starts in a great place. And, thanks to HRC and their racing programme, we’ve improved every aspect of its dual-sport performance. Ground clearance is improved by 30mm, to make bumping off kerbs (or over logs) so much easier.
Seat height gains 5mm to 880mm, improving natural control, while the narrow fuel tank means you can move forward freely. Whether navigating rough city streets or conquering new trails – or both in a day – the CRF300L is born ready.
CRF450 Rally -inspired floating Screen
Developed from the parts used by the competition-only CRF450 Rally, the floating screen- along with the upper and lower faring and side shrouds effectively shields the rider and offers excellent protection from the elements.
Larger capacity fuel tank
Giving an increased range of over 400km the fuel tank grows 2.7l to 12.8l with a 1.6l reserve, Unlike most dirt bikes, the flat cap is higher for clean easy-fill convenience.
Asymmetric LED headlights
Piercing dual led headlights provide excellent forward visibility on and off-road, The indicators are also bright LED.
Larger capacity, DOHC 4v single-cylinder engine with Assist/Slipper Clutch
Extra displacement delivers a healthy and responsive 26.6Nm peak torque, with 20.1kw peak power. The engine also now features an Assist/Slipper clutch to manage rear wheel “hop” during rapid downshifting and hard braking.
Light weight, extra ground clearance and high-quality Showa suspension
We’ve cut a total of 4kg out of the chassis thanks to lightweight tapered aluminium swingarm and redesigned frame. At the same time ground clearance increases 5mm, to 275mm, while the long travel Showa 43mm USD forks and rear shock provide excellent suspension reaction.
Floating front disc with ABS
For sensitive, powerful braking, the floating 256mm wavy disc is gripped by a two-piston calliper. Two-channel ABS allows the option to switch off the rear calliper for off-road riding.
Wheels fit for adventure
Stylish black Alumite 21″ front and 18″ rear aluminium rims wear dual-purpose block pattern tyres. Both wheels will also accept more off-road focused enduro-style tyres.
