With 300cc engine, electronic injection and aggressive design, new concept of Honda touring adventure sees any challenge

Visual adventure combined with a more comfortable driving, both suitable for use in cities and in non-paved roads. It was with this aim that Honda developed the XRE 300, which includes its new model line up of motorcycles nationals.

To make this idea reality, striking design was applied, with 300cc engine, the driving position more comfortable new chassis and semi-double cradle type. With these characteristics, try to win over users of XR 250 Tornado and NX4 Falcon, and owners of smaller models that seek sophistication and differentiation.

The XRE 300 meets the expectations of both beginners in the world of two wheels as the more experienced riders and is ideal for those who need a means of locomotion for the day to day in cities and for those who wish to travel by road or adventure land on weekends.

Aggressive design and impressive

DNA legacy of off-road XR 250 Tornado is evident in the whole project of XRE 300, the example of suspensions of long, high output with the exhaust from the main dashboard and the high school, which protects against aspersion. Added to all this was based on trend "adventure" in the new motorcycle, which presents modern and aggressive lines, conveying sophistication, magnificence, and therefore large differences in the category.

In front, the multi-reflector headlamp with polycarbonate lenses of 60/55W, provides excellent nighttime visibility and is surrounded by a textured black careen into which guarantees great resistance to risks. But the main dashboard, integrated careen to the lighthouse and the side deflectors, has forms that convey the feeling of strength and speed.

The new panel is complete and fully digital. Is integrated into the headlamp and careen marker brings fuel, tachometer, speedometer, odometer total and partial, and lights-spy's PGM-FI electronic injection, flashing, high light and neutral.

The black exhaust output high, surrounded by protective in silver; raiadas the wheels of 21 inches in front and 18 inches in the rear, with aluminum frame in black, and the mixed use of tires give more visual size and bold.

In back, the whole is formed by optical light and independent flags, support plate and high in aluminum handles integrated into the trunk of high strength nylon. The wide shoulder straps provide comfort and security for the hip, while the porter facilitates accommodation of cargo, as points of attachment is pre-set for the installation of bauleto (available on the market).

To consider any adventure

The motorcycle engine has 291.6 cm3, DOHC (Double Over Head Camshaft), monocilíndrico, four-stroke, Air-cooled with radiator and oil, which in combination with PGM-FI electronic injection, provides precise answers to the command of accelerator.

It develops maximum power of 26.1 hp to 7,500 rpm and torque of 2.81 6,000 rpm, providing flexibility and performance in any situation of use. These values represent a significant improvement in performance when comparing the model to the XR 250 Tornado, which developed a maximum power of 23.3 bhp at 7500 rpm and torque of 2.42 kgf.m to 6,000 rpm.

The exclusive use of the PGM-FI electronic injection, coupled with the catalyst and the PAIR valve installed on the motorcycle exhaust system, makes the XRE 300 meets with clearance, the rates of emission of pollutants established by the third stage of Promot (Program Control of Air Pollution by motorcycles and similar vehicles). While the law allows maximum emission of 2.00 g / km of carbon monoxide (CO), 0.3 g / km of hydrocarbons (HC) and 0.15 g / km of nitrogen oxide (NOx), the XRE 300 emits 0.849 g / km of CO, 0.1 g / km of HC and 0.081 g / km of NOx.

The XRE 300 exchange has five speeds, with scheduling that allows the use of power and torque, requiring less exchange marches. The model is equipped with electric start, fuel tank with a capacity of 12.4 Litres(2.3 Litresreserve) and sealed battery, free of periodic maintenance.

The new chassis, the type semi-double cradle, offers quick and easy steering, and more stable performance in any situation. The XRE 300 shows relationship between length, width and height of 2171 x 830 x 1181 mm and 1417 mm between the axles. Its soil is minimum distance of 259 mm, while the seat height is 860 mm and its dry weight is 144.5 kg.

The ergonomic seat is secured by two levels, which focuses on comfort and offers great fit next to the tank legs. The handlebars with new positioning, allows the pilot keeps his arms high, avoiding fatigue on long journeys. For croup, comfort is guaranteed by the seat, which leaves the higher position, and the handles in aluminum, with better grip.

The rear suspension monoamortecida kind of Pro-Link with adjustable spring tension and unique balance of aluminum (Aluminum Swing Arm), provides smooth and enjoyable driving in all situations, always keeps the tire in contact with the soil and increases the ability of traction on any terrain. Have the front of the telescopic fork kind of long, ensures high capacity to absorb impact, strength and resistance to torsion.

The front brake disk, with 256 mm diameter and double-piston caliper and rear disc also, with 220 mm diameter and caliper piston simple, provide great efficiency and progressivity in frenagens. Golden in color, the visual calipers give the model even more sophisticated.

Security is enhanced by the presence of the shutter-key (lock enabled with additional hex wrench and magnetic combinations) combined with the comb-lock (locks handlebars combined with the ignition key).
