All day Adventures; on and off-road
Features may include:
Engine & Drivetrain
A 15 percent increase in displacement (to 286 cc from 249 cc) improves power by 9.4 percent and torque throughout the rev range; giving the liquid-cooled DOHC single-cylinder engine better grunt at low-rpm and even stronger high-rpm performance. The engine’s wide spread of power makes this bike easy and confidence-inspiring to ride on-road or off.
Changes to the intake camshaft’s timing and lift help to improve output in the crucial low to medium speed ranges — all-important when tackling tough off-road terrain or city congestion.
The Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system continuously monitors several variables to help ensure the correct fuel mixture; thereby delivering optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions.
Chassis & Suspension
The frame and swingarm have been redesigned to improve both on- and off-road handling. The frame now has 25 percent less lateral rigidity; while the swingarm has 23 percent less lateral rigidity and 17 percent less torsional rigidity. The result? An ideal combination of on-road stability and off-road agility and traction.
At the steering head; the bottom bridge is now constructed from forged aluminum instead of steel; reducing weight by a full 730 g while also altering steering inertia and thereby improving agility.
By increasing travel of the Showa inverted fork by 10 mm; and boosting ground clearance by 30 mm; engineers were able to improve the CRF300L’s ability to tackle off-road obstacles while maintaining excellent on-road comfort. Likewise; the single-shock Pro-Link® rear suspension is calibrated to offer true dual-purpose capability.
A bunch of small ergonomic changes for 2021 add up to a big improvement in rider control; manoeuvrability; and comfort. The handlebar has been reconfigured to create a more natural riding position while also reducing vibration; the knee and thigh grip areas on the shrouds have been slimmed down for improved manoeuvrability; and the footpegs have been moved down and back to make the brake pedal and shift lever easier to operate.
It’s got a more-powerful engine and a host of other improvements; yet engineers still managed to shave overall weight by a full 5 kg.
Whether you’re riding in towns or on trails; the CRF300L always keeps you fully informed. The LCD instrument display now uses black letters and numbers on a white background and a larger font; displaying speed; rpm; gear position; fuel level; fuel consumption; average speed; and elapsed time.
