In the middle of last year, CFMoto introduced a motorcycle that changed the game in the middleweight sportbike segment in the Philippines. While bikes like the Yamaha R3 and Ninja 300 were favored for their grunt, it was when CFMoto introduced the 300SR that a greater number of Pinoy riders got a taste of a race-oriented, 300-class sportbike.
Unlike its Japanese counterparts, however, the CFMoto 300SR was equipped with a 292.4cc single cylinder engine. As such, it bore a more similar riding character to its Austrian cousin, the KTM RC 200. With 30 hp on tap, the CFMoto 300SR can definitely hold its own against motorcycles of similar, and even greater displacement. On top of that, it’s unmistakable supersport styling complete with low slung clip-ons and committed rear-set foot pegs definitely makes for a neck breaker on the streets.
The best selling point of the CFMoto 300SR is undoubtedly its price. With a sticker price of just P165,000, this aggressive little sportbike is even more affordable than some motorcycles that have less power and performance. In fact, it offers 300cc power at a 150cc price point. Having said that, CFMoto Philippines has yet again made this bike even better by launching a new colorway for their first entry level sportbike: Nebula White.
On the face of it, the new Nebula White CFMoto 300SR exudes premium vibes and a thoroughly clean aesthetic that’s very pleasing to the eyes. Sporting CFMoto’s signature white and teal colorway, the Nebula White color option is a slightly more understated finish as opposed to the previous iterations of this bike, while still managing to look very sporty and aggressive.
