Honda’s all-new CRF250 Rally is scheduled for release in Japan as early as 20th February 2017.
Honda grabbed everyone’s attention at the 2015 EICMA show in Milan, Italy when they announced the model as a concept before following that up at the 2016 EICMA show last November with news that it will go into full production.
Now Big Tank Magazine have confirmed Japan will get their hands on it before the end of February.
Initial pricing is set at 648,000yen (STD), 702,000yen (with ABS).
Ready for weekend adventure, long distance tour or the daily commute, with long travel suspension, large-disk ABS brakes, excellent weather protection from the CRF450 RALLY-inspired bodywork and an impressive cruising range. Engine performance combines solid bottom-end torque with substantial top-end power.
With styling DNA drawn directly from the HRC CRF450 RALLY Dakar racer, the CRF250 RALLY brings something new to the market. It not only looks ready to compete in a desert stage, but also delivers a real taste of adventure to riders who prefer a light, easy-to-manage machine. Around the world or around the block, the CRF250 RALLY is good to go.
Wearing sharp new CRF450R-derived bodywork, the dual-purpose ready-for-anything CRF250L has more power and torque from a revised intake and exhaust system, plus ABS braking and a new digital dash with tachometer and fuel gauge.
Slips easily through congested city streets thanks to lightweight and slim proportions matched with superb manoeuvrability, while its suspension, ground reach and seat height deliver a fun and comfortable ride on rough tarmac and trails. It opens up a whole new range of two-wheeled opportunities, whatever the rider’s experience level.
