2021 Honda CRF300L Review / Specs + NEW Changes Explained! | CRF250L Dual Sport Replacement

While writing about the new 2021 CRF250L changes yesterday for Japan, guess what popped up on my radar? The new 2021 CRF300L to replace the CRF250L and the CRF300 Rally to replace the CRF250 Rally! Honda of Thailand just announced the new 2021 Honda CRF300L and we have some interesting things to talk about… Will we be getting this CRF300L for the USA or the new 2021 CRF250L that Japan just announced yesterday that we covered? Check out the new CRF250L by Clicking Here.

There a couple of things we’re not 100% sure on yet though regarding the CRF300L and it coming to the USA and what its specs will be. One of them is on the seat height side of things, the CRF250L in Thailand had a lower seat height than what was offered here in America so we can’t do a cross comparison on it and know that it’s fact at the moment. The CRF300L seat height for Thailand is 32.7 inches compared to our existing CRF250L in the USA at 34.4 inches. I suspect that if we get the CRF300L for America, that seat height will be bumped up closer to that of our spec CRF250L making the CRF300L seat height come in around the 34.4 to 34.6 inch mark compared to Thailand’s at 32.7 inches. Similar to how Japan is doing with their new 2021 CRF250L that I talked about here, they offer one with a 32.6 inch seat height and then a CRF250L S model that comes in at 34.6 inches.

Another thing to note in changes comes with the CRF300L Rally fuel capacity. The CRF250L Rally had a larger 2.7 gallon fuel tank over the CRF250L model that came in at 2.0 gallons. Now, the CRF300L Rally has a 3.4 gallon fuel tank giving you quite the range jump over its sibling the CRF300L at 2.0 gallons.

Aside from that news, what else do we know about it? What engine does the CRF300L & Rally get? It’s shared with the CBR300R and CB300R models. What does that mean? It means the CRF300L is pumping out 31 horsepower compared to the previous generation CRF250L which came in at 24.4 horsepower, so that’s quite the bump when we’re talking percentage gains! It also has a new assist slipper clutch, larger gauges and some design tweaks here and there.

When it comes to the new 2021 CRF300L frame / chassis, Honda also went to work by putting it on a diet! They were able to drop the curb weight on the CRF300L to 304.2 lbs which is quite the drop from the outgoing CRF250L at 321.9 lbs.

I’m unsure at the moment if the CRF300L will come standard with ABS like so many other models are now in 2021 but the upside if that is the case… You might be able to now turn it off in the rear with the simple push of a button. Why do I say “might”? Because we’re not 100% sure if that feature from the new 2021 CRF250L in Japan will make its way to the CRF300L from Thailand that is meant for the American market. Sometimes certain features like that don’t carry over. You can see from the videos below that the 2021 CRF300L does not have the ABS button to turn it off like the new CRF250L but there’s still hope as it may be a feature that they throw on the 2021 CRF300L USA / Europen spec bikes. Time will tell…

You also have a new gauge cluster / display on the 2021 CRF300L now with a gear position indicator, offering more information than ever.

What do you guys think about the new 2021 CRF300L & CRF300 Rally changes? Do you want to see American Honda bring the CRF300L over to this side of the pond instead of the new 2021 CRF250L that Japan is getting? I can’t say “officially” as that would get me in a lot of trouble but… it might just happen.

Also, I’ll be doing a more detailed 2021 CRF300L review very soon where I break down all of the nitty-gritty details about the bike and the R&D behind it etc. This was breaking news, so I wanted to get the general info out to you ASAP.
