The official unveiling of the CFMoto 300SR is here, and it will follow this news to dealerships come April of this year. The motorcycle is Euro 5, and A2 compliant and will be sold globally.
The CFMoto 300SR is no slouch despite the low-displacement. With an A2 motorcycle, you want to get as much bike-for-your-buck as possible since it will be a mandatory step you must take along the stairway to literbike heaven. The 300SR has all the bells and whistles you would find on a modern 900cc motorcycle. LED lighting, smartphone connectivity, two riding modes, ABS, four-piston caliper brakes, and 37mm USD forks.
The new and ever-growing 300cc market has a lot of options currently, but this bike will, unfortunately, come at a heavy cost of missing power due to the 28 horsepower being produced from the bike’s single-cylinder engine. For context, the R3 – Yamaha’s direct competitor to the 300SR – makes 43 horsepower. Perhaps this will be a bike better suited for A2 riders who are intimidated by the higher horsepower numbers of modern 300cc bikes but would also light to retain the visual appeal of a sportbike without having to turn to a classic-cruiser like the Royal Enfield Meteor.
At the time of writing this article, CFMoto has yet to release any pricing or availability of this motorcycle.
