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.[1] Unlike these motorcycles' 250 cc and 400 cc engines, the fuel-injected (Programmed fuel injection) 300 cc engine in the XRE300 meets Brazil's new PROMOT 3 emissions rules.[2][better source needed] It has an anti-lock brake (ABS) option.[3]

Heavily based on its 250 cc predecessor, the XRE300 is aimed at urban riders but can be used for light trail work.[4] The XRE300 is used by motorized infantry brigades of the Brazilian army.[5]


There are different versions of the same model:

  • Brazil initial Model 2009 - 2014
  • Brazil, Colombia 2015 - Current
  • Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, 2017 - current[6]
    • New digital LCD Display

Since 2014 the motorcycle include new improvements such as:

  1. new viscosus air filter technology
  2. new iridium spark plug
  3. The fuel pump is inside the fuel tank

Fuel technology[edit]

All the XRE Models can use either gasoline or ethanol, which Honda's PGM-FI system can detect and adapt to.[6]
