Taiwanese manufacturer Sanyang Manufacturing, better known as SYM and popular locally for its range of 250 cc scooters, has posted catalogue pictures on its Malaysian Facebook page of what might be the successor to its SB250NI quarter-litre bike. Dubbed the Wolf SB300CR, this entry-level machine sports a 278 cc, liquid-cooled, four-valve single.

The engine is claimed to put out 27 hp, and 26.5 NM torque at 7,000 rpm. The styling of the Wolf SB300CR is somewhat reminiscent of the naked sports bikes of the 80s, notably the BMW Motorrad K75. Fuelling is by EFI, and of particular interest is the inclusion of Bosch ABS.

There were no details of whether this is the 2016 Bosch ABS10 for motorcycles, but if so, it means that the quarter-litre class is benefiting from the safety technology developed in larger capacity bikes. No word on whether SYM’s Malaysian distributor will be bringing the Wolf SB300CR to our shores, but it would offer Malaysian riders another choice in the hotly-contested 250 cc motorcycle market.

If it does arrive in Malaysia, would you consider this retro naked bike?
