New for 2021, the CRF300L and CRF300 Rally offers a 286 cc engine, revised air intake, inlet cam timing and exhaust system providing better torque and peak power. You’ll also find an overall shorter gearbox with the exception of the wider sixth gear offering better performance for high speeds. Among these features the CRF300L also has a redesigned swingarm and a more laterally flexible frame, longer suspension travel, higher ground clearance and revised rider positioning. Curb weight is reduced from previous models to 139 kg, and is available with ABS.

The CRF300L’s new engine produces 10% more peak power and an added 18% in peak torque. The model offers a slim 7.8 litre fuel tank and an ergonomic riding position offering for lighter steering on- and off-road. On the bike you’ll also find a redesigned LCD display offering speedometer, gear position, fuel mileage, average speed, stopwatch and rev-counter. On top of this the CRF300 Rally offers a larger 12.8 Litre fuel tank to take on longer adventures.
