Good news for the Canadian Honda fans, both seasoned and new riders: Honda will bring its all-new stunning-design NM4 Vultus machine to Canada, somewhere around the last quarter of the year. At the same time it looks like the CBR300 is also making some progress, as CMG reports that the small-displacement CBR is also on its way to Canada alongside the Vultus.
Initially announced as a March delivery, the Honda CBR300 machines have been delayed for yet unknown reasons, as we already reported. Now Honda is trying to get rid of the CBR250R stock as fast as it possibly can, offering them for highly-discounted prices as low as CAD3,499 ($3,170 or €2,300), obviously hoping to sell these phase-out bikes in Canada and not having to restock them in other markets.

Anyway, it’s good to see that Honda is finally fielding their rival to the Ninja 300, adding more competition in this segment which is steadily growing, much to the young riders’ benefit. And while the CBR250R had ABS as an option, the new CBR300R will sport anti-locking brakes as standard trim.

Honda will also bring their latest model, the NM4 Vultus to Canada in late 2014, equipped with the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), seemingly a premiere for the 750-series twin lumps. The same Canadian sources say that the market North of Lake Superior will receive the bike with the simple model name NM4, and drop the much alluring and exclusivist Vultus. Why go this way, few could say, but it’s nice to see it making into the dealers’ showrooms. We’re delving for the price now, so stay tuned.
