Dual-sport or adventure bikes have always been dream machines. Motorcycles that let you ride on both dirt trails as well as the street. But exotic destinations aside, they’re also extraordinarily practical too: rugged, narrow, light, minimalistic, built to survive everything from barren desert to your weekday commute.
Want a motorcycle with this type of versatility, that won’t cost you an arm and a leg? That’s where Honda’s CRF250L and CRF250L Rally come in. They’re light, simple, fuel-efficient, and super dependable. They fit a wide range of riders and budgets. They work around your lifestyle, rather than asking you to adapt to someone else’s concept. And best of all, they’re both a blast to ride.
Both use the same proven engine: a liquid-cooled fuel-injected single cylinder with electric starting. Both offer some pretty awesome fuel efficiency. Long-travel suspension front and rear is designed to soak up the bumps and rocks trail riding can toss your way, so you know it’s going to handle the lousy pavement you’ll encounter. Both are even available with optional ABS.
Want to know which one is right for you? The CRF250L costs a little less, and is a little lighter. The CRF250L Rally adds a larger fuel tank, Dakar-inspired bodywork, handguards, a windscreen, a skid plate, and even more suspension travel. Both are an excellent choice as a first bike, a second bike, or even your only way to get around. Bottom line: The CRF250L and CRF250L Rally are two of the best forms of personal transportation you could ever hope for!
Plenty of Punch.
At the heart of our CRF250L and CRF250L Rally lies a fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, complete with an electric starter, counterbalance, and double-overhead cams. So you get smooth, consistent power packing loads of low- and mid-range torque.
Comfort is Key.
Out on the trail, you want a bike that allows for upright seating, keeping you ready for whatever lies around the next bend. And you’ll find those same qualities come in handy when riding in traffic. Either way, you can maneuver varying terrain in comfort.
The tall windscreen, the extra-coverage fairing and side panels, the blended, frame-mounted bodywork and twin headlights are all marks of a true rally machine. Sure, the 2018 CRF250L Rally looks great (especially the new Black/Silver/Red color scheme), but you’ll appreciate the extra wind- and weather protection too.
