  • New CRF300's released

    New CRF300's released in Thailand. Probably not what everyone is looking for here as this more leans on the ADV end of the spectrum being a dual sport. Point is, nice to see dual sports are starting to again get some upgrades after decades and not being left to completely die. Hopefully we see them in Australia!

    23 to 31hp is a pretty significant jump - roughly 40% more.

      I wouldn't call a CRF an Adventure Bike unless you can afford to bin-it after.
      The 450 did Dakar. I've had Honda; it was very reliable; so what do I know?

      As Spac quite rightly said.. 40% is a huge improvement; stressed metal?
      Give me something I can mono in any gear & do-that for months on-end.

      My idea of Adventure isn't a piss-ant postie step-thru across the Nullarbor:
      Yeah... you can... That's quite an Achievement... Kudos to you... But why?
      The More I Learn... The Less I Know.
      That Which Doesn't Change... Stays The Same.
      Those That Don't Fall... Just Aren't Trying Hard Enough.
      Genius or Idiot... Sadly it's Defined by the Mediocre Masses... With their Hindsight.

          Maybe I should clarify?
          CRF250 +50cc =good?

          It's a CRF250 + 50cc?
          The box-still CRF250?

          Get paid-out if-it blows?
          If-yes, it's a firm maybe?

          I'm only 70kg. 5'10 naked:
          I'd never buy <50hp again.

          Oh... I'd want 6 gears too:
          I've tried with 5... that sux.

            The numbers seem pretty impressive and if the suspension is stiffen up like on the WR then its quite competitive. It's an opportunity to iterate the WR and iterate the CRF in the segment to tidy up a few of the shortcomings. I do like how the CRF no longer comes with a tungsten candle, about time!

              Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it heavier and less powerful than the DRZ400E.
              Just playing the devils advocate here... I'm struggling to see what it brings to the competition.

                Heavier, I don't know for sure but probably not.
                Less powerful, certainly.

                Those Hondas are very pedestrian. The extra 50cc would be welcome but if I were in on the R&D meeting at Honda the focus would be on losing 20kg first. Much rather -20kg than +50cc.

                The WR250R is definitely a step up from the Honda in terms of off road capabilities. But look in my mind it is what it is - if you like Honda and you don't care for going too fast off road they are all suitable and have target markets.

                  Competition breeds innovation. The CRF300 just needs to exist on the market was my point, it doesn't need to be ground breaking.
                  Totally personally, I found the suspension wayyyy too plush on the CRF's imho, like they forgot to put the strings in and it was just oil. Not sure what the 300 is like, I sure hope they fixed that.
