Honda has announced a new CRF300L for some markets (but not yet for North America).
I like what has been happening in the Japanese 250cc dual sport bike class recently. First, Kawasaki upped their 250 to a 300. Now Honda has increased their 250 to a 300 also – and will hopefully bring it to the US market soon. Yamaha announced the end of production for the WR250R. Are they about to bring out a 300 too? Time will tell…
250 cc dual sport motorcycles are nice but 300 is better. Which is what Kawasaki has decided to do for 2021 – bump the KLX250 all the way up to 300cc (actually 292cc but rounded to 300 because it sounds better).
The specs: 21/18 tire combo, 10 inches front suspension travel, 9.8 inches of ground clearance, 2 gallon gas tank, and a claimed weight of 302 lbs. MSRP of $5799.
