Honda’s lightweight dual-purpose tool, the CRF300L, is designed as a bike that is equally manoeuvrable off road as it is in town. Its enduring popularity since launch as the CRF250L in 2012 was boosted further when it received a 50cc capacity increase and 4kg weight loss for 20YM. Its success relies on several factors: instantly-recognisable sharp-edged CRF styling, a responsive single-cylinder engine, six-speed gearbox with slipper clutch control, a responsive agile frame, slim proportions and long travel suspension.
For 23YM the CRF300L receives an all-new Swift Gray colour, with new black knuckle guards and orange graphics as standard. This joins the traditional Extreme Red colour scheme, which itself now wears standard-fit colour-matched knuckle guards.
