2018 Honda CRF250L Rally


Inspired by the factory CRF450 Rally machine raced in the Dakar by Team Monster Energy Honda, and based on the standard CRF250L, the CRF250L Rally is ready for weekend adventure, long-distance touring or the daily commute. Featuring styling that evokes images of adventure and travel, the bike has long-travel suspension, large-disk brakes (with available ABS), excellent weather protection and an impressive cruising range. Engine performance combines solid bottom-end torque with substantial top-end power.

Chassis / Suspension

  • Steel frame offers solid performance on rough pavement or off-road trails.
  • Long, motocross-style seat allows the rider to move forward and back, left and right with ease, helping you navigate changing terrain in comfort.
  • Fold-up, frame-mounted passenger foot pegs enable a passenger to come along for the ride.
  • Special cargo hooks make it easy to secure a light load to the passenger seat with bungee cords.
  • Frame-mounted, Rally-type windscreen offers improved wind protection.
  • Vertically split radiator shrouds give the CRF250L Rally a sporty appearance and at the same time offer improved aerodynamics and cooling.
  • Skid plate provides added protection to underside in rough terrain.
  • Handguards are incorporated into the design, while offering protection from wind and brush.
  • CRF450R-inspired graphics give the CRF250L Rally aggressive looks.

Engine / Drivetrain

  • Roller rocker arm design for valve train allows for a compact cylinder head.
  • Engine counterbalancer enables smooth running.
  • Fuel injection means the CRF250L Rally starts right up, even in cold weather.
