     The Honda CRF 250L (model designation MD38) is a dual-sport motorcycle, part of the Honda CRF series, manufactured by Honda for their global market. It was first released in 2012 for the 2013 model year.

     It combines a high-efficiency, fuel-injected DOHC single-cylinder counterbalanced engine, and electric starter with a comfortable, neutral seating position, headlight, taillight, turn signals, mirrors, EPA and California Air Resources Board compliant exhaust system.

     The Honda CRF 250L is that the motorcycle industry’s top-selling dual-sport model by a large margin, and it’s easy to know why. With a reasonable price, unmatched reliability, and solid on- and off-road performance, Honda’s 250cc class dual-sport machine is a superb value.

     With a long-travel 43mm inverted fork, single-shock Pro-Link® rear suspension, and styling cues carried over from Honda’s CRF Performance line, both the quality and ABS versions of the CRF250L are able to provide low-cost transportation and true dual-sport adventure.

HONDA CRF 250L SINGLE-CYLINDER ENGINE:

2020-honda-CFR-250-L-double-usage

     A single is a perfect choice for a bike like the Honda CRF 250L and Honda CRF 250L Rally. It’s light, simple, returns excellent fuel economy, and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque-just what you want in this type of motorcycle.

RALLY BIKE STYLING:

     The tall windscreen, the extra-coverage fairing, and side panels, the blended, frame-mounted bodywork are all marks of a true rally machine. The 2020 Honda CRF 250L Rally looks great, but you’ll appreciate the extra wind- and weather protection too.

Honda CRF 250L ENGINEERING:

  • ENGINE COUNTERBALANCER

     Because it features a counter-balancer, the engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.

  • FUEL INJECTION

     Fuel injection means the CRF250L models start right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency.

VERSATILITY:

  • COMFORTABLE SEATING POSITION

     With a long, motocross-style seat, you can move forward and back, left and right with ease, helping you navigate changing terrain in comfort.

  • CARGO CONVENIENCE

     Special cargo hooks make it easy to secure a light load to the passenger seat with bungee cords. It’s just another one of the nice touches that help make these bikes so versatile. It also has a storage box on the left side for small items you need to keep secure.

  • DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION

     The CRF250L’s digital instrument cluster is integrated with the headlight visor and gives you all the information you need: Speedometer, clock, twin trip meter, fuel gauge, and more. The CRF250L Rally’s digital instrument cluster tucks in behind the rally-style windscreen, just like the big Dakar bikes.

  • PASSENGER READY

     With its long seat and fold-up frame-mounted passenger footpegs, each Honda CRF 250L model is fully equipped to carry a passenger so you can share the fun.

HANDLING:

  • 21-INCH/18-INCH FRONT AND REAR WHEELS

     A 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel give you a wide selection of tire choices for everything from serious off-road trail riding to smooth on-road adventures.

  • DISC BRAKES

     The CRF250L models feature front and rear hydraulic discs for excellent stopping power and brake feel, both for on- and off-road use. Both bikes are even available with optional anti-lock brakes (ABS). An added plus: when dirt riding, you can turn off the ABS function for the rear wheel; on the street, it’s easy to switch it back on.

  • INVERTED FORK

     An inverted Showa® fork features large 43mm sliders. That makes it strong and helps add to the Honda CRF 250L model’s excellent handling in on or off-road conditions.

  • PRO-LINK REAR SUSPENSION

     Thanks to our single-shock Pro-Link rear suspension, the CRF250L models deliver excellent comfort, traction, and handling, while also improving rider confidence. The Rally’s suspension front and rear offer more travel and greater ground clearance.

  • STRONG STEEL FRAME
