Thoughts About The Honda CRF300L Dual-Purpose Motorcycle India Launch On Cards

The Honda CRF300L is focused more on off-road use. There is very few features or compatibility for on-road use of the motorcycle. As patents go, not all products registered will be launched by brands.

As the CRF300L focuses very little on anything else than off-road, whether it is a motorcycle preferred by ADV enthusiast in the country remains to be seen. For now, we wait for an official word from the company on the CRF300L for the Indian market.
