While we were waiting for news this week about an updated CRF250L and CRF250 Rally coming to Japan, something even more exciting happened; Honda launched a CRF300L and CRF300 Rally in Thailand.

Sounds great:

The heart of the new CRF300 platform is a 286cc fuel-injected DOHC engine mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine puts out 31 horsepower and 19.3 ft-lbs of torque compared to the previous 250cc engine’s 22.8 horsepower and 16 ft-lbs of torque. That’s a 36% increase in power which is sure to give both bikes even greater long-range cruising capability for the highway, along with more hill climbing grunt for the trail. To make it even more manageable to ride aggressively, Honda has also added a slipper clutch.

A little nitpicking - the 2012-2016Crfs had 22,8 HP, the 2017-2020 Crfs and Rally have 24,4 HP.

But overall its great upgrades on an already great bike. More power, more tourque, lighter, slipper clutch, bigger tank on the Rally - its gonna be a winner for sure!

Indeed. I've got an Acerbis tank on one of my CRFs - and managed to squeeze 12.8 litres into it on Friday. It's useful.
