CFMoto’s new fully faired 300SR sportsbike will hit local showrooms in May, rivalling the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 400, Yamaha YZF-R3 and KTM RC390.
Pricing has yet to be revealed, although it is expected to undercut its aforementioned rivals.
The bike is powered by a 292cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 29hp (21kW) and 25Nm.
Braking is managed by a four-piston caliper grabbing a 292mm disc at the front, and a single-piston floating caliper on a 220mm disc at the rear.
It also boasts a TFT display with two interfaces (Sport and Eco), auto-adjusting screen brightness and smartphone mirroring.
The CFMoto 300SR is suspended by a 37mm upside-down fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
It will be available in Nebula Black or Turquoise Blue colour schemes, and factory-fitted options will also be available to give the bike a customised look.
Some of these options will include a clutch and brake lever kit, guards, foot pegs, fuel tank quick locks and more.
