If there is one positive side of the ongoing pandemic, it is that people are riding motorcycles more, as evidenced by the 2021 sales figures going through the roof of almost every motorcycle manufacturer.
One of the fastest-growing segments is the adventure bike segment, which has grown exponentially over the last two years. That being said, it is no wonder why companies are putting their money into developing new adventure bikes for the market.
Taiwanese motorcycle manufacturer, SYM, has recently unveiled their newest entry-level adventure bike that has its eyes set on Honda’s CRF300 Rally – the NH300 T.
Like the Honda CRF300 Rally, the SYM NH300 T is also powered by a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This 278cc powerplant is claimed to be capable of producing at least 27 Ps of power and 24 Nm of torque. By comparison, Honda’s 286cc CRF300 Rally also produces 27 Ps of power but with a bit more torque at 26.6 Nm.
For SYM, they opted to use 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels as opposed to 21/18-inch (front/rear) for Honda.
The SYM NH300 T is also equipped with front and rear disc brakes with ABS, a digital panel, and an engine/crash guard.
While there’s no news yet if the NH300 T will be distributed by SYM PH here in the country, this bike looks promising, especially if the price will be much more affordable than Honda’s offering.
