Historic Italian off-road motorcycle marque SWM has updated its robust enduro range with sharper styling and updated performance on the RS 300R and RS 500R...
The 2021 SWM RS 300R and RS 500R enduro models have just been announced. Both will receive fresh yellow and black liveries and an updated throttle map for a smoother power delivery for an all round easier to ride package for the serious rider or the novice off-roader.
Priced from $8590 and $9290+ORC, the 2021 SWM RS 300R and RS 500R will be available from your nearest SWM dealer next month. The four-stroke models are distinguished by their yellow frames and black/charcoal graphics giving the SWM brand name a distinctive look.
Powering the RS 300R is a 297cc four-stroke single that SWM say packs a perfect punch and provides maximum mid-size versatility to conquer trails, unforgiving climbs or run hard on the track while delivering big thrills without the big budget.
The RS 500R, meanwhile, with its large 501cc displacement, has been made with big desert tracks and open trails in mind. SWM say it is the quintessential weapon of choice for riders with an insatiable appetite for open-class engine performance packaged with friendly, predictable trail-bike compliance and handling characteristics.
Both 2021 models also benefit from Euro 4 engine mapping; a strengthened sub-frame; new plastics, headlight and indicators as well as a re-contoured seat ergonomics for a claimed enhanced comfort experience. Also as with the previous models, the new RS 300R and RS 500R feature Mikuni fuel injection, KYB suspension, Brembo brakes and Michelin Enduro Competition IV tyres combined with a fuel capacity of 7.2 litres for both models.
Manufactured at SWM’s production facility in Lombardia, Italy, the SWM RS 300R and RS 500R are backed by the assurance of a six-month parts and labour warranty.
“Not everybody wants or needs a high-strung, race-ready enduro bike to hit the trails and have fun, and that’s exactly where SWM fits the bill with its winning combination of history, quality and reliability served up with a budget-beating price tag,” SWM Australia director Michael Poynton says.
