Honda is bringing new scrambler bike, will the days of RE Hunter be over?

Honda CL300:
Honda is preparing to introduce a new scrambler bike in the Indian market. The upcoming bike could be the CL300 launched in China this year or even the CL250.

Many new bikes are ready to be launched in the Indian market. Legendary two-wheeler company Honda is also planning to introduce a new bike of 250cc or 300cc. The upcoming bike can be launched in the market under the CL brand. Honda hasn't made a CL bike since the 70s. However, the CL300 has been launched in China this year. According to the reports, the company has taken a patent for the new Scrambler motorcycle in India. However, it is not clear whether the new bike will come in 300 cc or 250 cc.

The Honda CL300 has already been launched in China, while the CL250 could be introduced soon. The motorcycle patented in India could be the CL250 Scrambler or the CL300 Scrambler. The name of the bike has not been revealed in Honda's patent. The block and casing of both the 249 cc and 286 cc engines are the same, only the inside bore and stroke differ.

Same design

The design of the CL300 and CL250 will be similar. Both the motorcycles will be offered as Rebel cruiser bikes from Honda. Apart from the CL300 and CL250, except for the engine, the design of the CL500 will also be similar to each other. In this way, Honda will try to maintain the distinct identity of the motorcycle in its lineup.

KTM also adopted this strategy

KTM has also adopted a similar strategy. The two-wheeler brand Duke uses the same frame and body as the RC and Adventure range. The only difference between them is the engine specifications.

Honda Scrambler: Expected Specifications

Talking about the specifications of Honda CL250 Scrambler, this bike will knock with 249 cc DOHC liquid cooled single cylinder engine. It is the same engine that powers the Rebel 250.

The 286 cc engine from the CBR300R can be used in the CL300. The single cylinder engine will generate less power than the Rebel 300.

After launch, the new Honda Scrambler will compete directly with the Royal Enfield Hunter 350.
