The entry-level sportbike segment will get more exciting this year when the 300SR from CFMoto arrives in a month or two, depending on the CoVid-19 situation. The 300SR is the sportier fully faired version of the naked 300NK, and they share its perky 292.4cc single cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel injected, 4 valves, dohc motor that’s rated at 29 hp at 8750 rpm and 17.33 lb-ft of torque at 7250 rpm mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
First seen as a race concept at the CFMoto booth in EICMA last November, the 300SR features aggressive styling with a sharp front end treatment that houses the split LED headlights and LED daytime running lights. But unlike the race concept, the production 300SR has an underslung exhaust system rather than the Akrapovic and a J.Juan front brake caliper instead of Brembo.
Like its naked sibling, the 300SR also comes equipped with UpSide Down fork in front and a monoshock rear suspension. Braking hardware consists of a single disc setup in front and rear with standard dual-channel ABS. The 300SR also features a five-inch color TFT screen with bluetooth connectivity, two riding modes (Sport and Rain), and a slipper-clutch.
CFMoto Philippines has yet to announce the price of the 300SR, but we surmise it to be lower than the 215k asking price of the 400NK. Please standby on our Facebook page for more updates.
