2017 Honda CRF250L Rally

Honda graced adventure riders with some good news this week, debuting its new CRF250L Rally. Inspired by Team HRC’s CRF450 Dakar Rally racer, and based on the standard CRF250L, the Rally is a fierce-looking, fun, lightweight dual sport destined for weekend adventuring, commuting, and even long-distance touring.

At the front, the rally-type “floating” screen, fairing, and radiator shrouds provide wind protection, with the rest of the machine showing off minimal MX style. The asymmetric headlights are LED, as are the turn signals. A large fuel tank allows extensive range, and the new digital dash includes a fuel gauge and tachometer. Long-travel suspension and high ground clearance enhance its long-distance off-road ability, and a larger floating front disc—plus ABS that can be switched off for the rear brake—delivers stopping power. The engine boasts solid bottom-end torque coupled with substantial top-end power, thanks to updates from the original CRF250L including revised PGM-FI and throttle body, a new airbox, and a lightweight exhaust.

Available in a red/black/white color scheme, the 2017 CRF250L Rally is priced at $5,899 and will be available in March 2017.

The standard CRF250L also features important upgrades for 2017, including a number of powertrain changes that are aimed at increasing power and improving throttle response. Available in red for $5,099, it will also be available in March.
