Honda CRF300L Spied In India
The Honda CRF300L dual-sport motorcycle was patented in India a year ago, and it has since been sighted inside of what appears to be an Indian store. Honda’s other models, like the Unicorn and Dio, which are only sold in India, surround it. Do these facts indicate that Honda will soon introduce the CRF300L in India? It is too soon to predict.
On August 8, Honda is scheduled to introduce a brand-new motorbike under the BigWing brand, and rumors abound that it will be the Forza 350. There is a possibility that this is it now that the CRF300L has been seen. If so, Honda’s CRF300L will be the first dual-sport motorcycle the business introduces in India.
The motorcycle’s 286cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, the single-cylinder motor produces 27 horsepower, 26.6 Nm, and is shared with the CB300R that is offered for sale in India. Though logic would seem to suggest the contrary, because the CB is now localized, we ponder whether the CRF300L would be as well.
All things considered, the CRF300L’s, if released, will boast quite strong off-road credentials. It boasts knobby tires on its 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels, and the chassis is supported by a USD fork and mono-shock with nearly 260mm of travel on each end. The seat height is an astounding 880mm, as promised, and the ground clearance is also a gigantic 284mm.
With few body panels and a flat, wide seat, the design is unmistakably a case of utility over form.
When and if this motorcycle is sold in India, we don’t anticipate it to be cheap. In reality, the CRF costs £600 (about Rs 58,000) more in the UK than the CB300R, at £5,699 (around Rs 5.47 lakh). In India, anticipate a similar or wider pricing gap.
