2021 Motorcycle Previews 2021 Honda CRF300L and CRF300L Rally Coming To America

2021 Honda CRF300L and CRF300L Rally Coming To America

We told you all about the new 2021 Honda CRF300L and CRF300L Rally last month. Although we fully expected the pair to be imported into the United States, we didn’t know exactly when. American Honda has set a date—March 2021. We also have prices and full specs.

2021 Honda CRF300L: Price and MSRP

We won’t rehash what we revealed in our original CRF300L and Rally coverage, but a few new nuggets are buried in the specs. Most notably, the Rally should be a more-agile motorcycle. The rake is tucked in, the trail reduced a bit, and the wheelbase a touch shorter. Add in the curb weight loss of nine pounds (despite a three-quart fuel capacity increase) and the 36cc displacement increase, and it’s all good news.

Because the 15 percent displacement increase came from stroking the 250’s motor, we expect a noticeable increase in torque—exactly what dual sport motorcycle needs. Also, the suspension travel is now standardized between the CRF300L and the Rally—it’s 10.2 inches for every wheel.
