Honda CRF250 Rally

by admin

Is there anyone not making something called a ‘Rally’ at the moment?

Great isn’t it?

Here’s Honda’s crack at the small-bore adventure market, again, on dfisplay at EICMA. Based on the  CRF250L, the Rally gets longer suspension travel, more ground clearance (270mm) and a larger 10.1-litre tank which Honda claims will give a range of over 320km.

The bike’s styling features a big, clear screen screen, a fairing and side shrouds and comes with handguards.

Aeat height is 895mm. The headlight is a compact, asymmetric dual LED unit, while the rear light, LED indicators and numberplate bracket are smallish units (We’ll have to wait and see what happens with Aussie ADRs).

A new 43mm Showa inverted fork has the same 250mm stroke as the CRF250L, but sports cool-looking, black Alumite aluminium rims (21in front/18in rear) and knobbies.

Other major changes see the inclusion of ABS (switchable at the rear), a larger floating front disc and a folding-tip gear lever. A digital dash rounds out the package.

The bike’s Euro4-compliant engine makes 24.4bhp and Honda says the bike weighs in at 157kg fuelled and ready to ride.
