The 2022 versions of CFMOTO's inimitable 300cc learner-approved machines – the naked 300NK and fully faired 300SR – are now on sale in Australia with a mix of aesthetic, mechanical and electronic updates.

The Euro 5-compliant single-cylinder duo now has a slipper clutch for smoother down changes, and there's an updated five-inch TFT screen.

The MY22 300SR, which retails for $6290 rideaway, is available in a new tri-colour livery – orange, with lashings of blue and white.

The current 300SR promotion – a free jacket and CFMOTO helmet with every purchase – will be extended until the end of March 2022 for both the MY22 and MY21 (in Nebula Black and Turquoise Blue) models.

Meanwhile, the MY22 300NK has two new liveries: Nebula Black and Athens Blue, and the retail price is $5490 rideaway.

"We're delighted to present the 2022 model 300SR and 300NK," said CFMOTO Australia director, Michael Poynton. "The 300SR holds a special place as CFMOTO's first fully faired machine, and it's a civil city commuter by week and captivating corner carver by weekend – road or track.

"It offers new and sports-inspired riders sharp, sophisticated styling, exceptional handling, performance and value – and the updates only add to the bike's appeal.

"And the 300NK just keeps on keeping on with an enviable balance between pure attraction and pure fun."

Shared attributes between the 300NK and 300SR include linear power and torque curves – great for first-time riders and commuters – impressive styling, underslung exhausts, upside-down forks, J.Juan brakes, Continental ABS, light-weight wheels, LED lights, switchable ride modes and mobile phone connectivity.

The MY22 300NK and 300SR are now on sale, with three-year unlimited-kilometre factory warranties.
