The Honda XRE 300 is a single-cylinder dual-sport motorcycle designed and manufactured by Honda in Brazil. It was launched in August 2009 to simultaneously replace the Japanese firm's two South American on/off-road motorcycles: the XR250 Tornado and the NX4 Falcon. Unlike these motorcycles' 250cc and 400cc engines, the fuel-injected (Programmed fuel injection)300cc unit fitted to XRE300 meets Brazil's new PROMOT 3 emissions rules.
It is available in two versions (standard and C-ABS) and three colours: red, black, and metallic yellow.
Heavily based on its 250cc predecessor, the XRE300 is aimed at urban riders but can be used for light trail work. For more demanding cross-country duties, Honda offers the off-road-only CRF230F. The XRE300 is used by motorized infantry brigades of the Brazilian army.
