GO ANYWHERE WITH A SMILE
Some bikes are up for anything. The CRF250L and CRF250L Rally are built to handle everything from the extremes of the desert to your weekday commute. Equipped with a a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single cylinder engine with electric start, awesome fuel economy, and long-travel suspension front and rear. You can even get them with optional ABS. Which one is right for you? The CRF250L keeps it lean and mean while the CRF250L Rally raises the bar with a larger fuel tank, Dakar-inspired bodywork, handguards, windscreen, skid plate, and even more suspension travel. Either way you have a bike with versality at its heart.
A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CRF250L and CRF250L 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 a motorcycle.
The tall windscreen, the extra-coverage fairing and side panels, the blended, frame-mounted bodywork are all marks of a true rally machine. The 2018 CRF250L Rally looks great, but you’ll appreciate the extra wind- and weather protection too.
Because it features a counterbalancer, 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 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.
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 offers more travel and greater ground clearance.
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.
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.
An inverted Showa® fork features large 43mm sliders. That makes it strong and helps add to the CRF250L model's excellent handling in on or off-road conditions.
STRONG STEEL FRAME
A sturdy steel frame is strong and designed to survive in the real world of rough pavement or off-road trails.
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.
The CRF250L's digital instrument cluster is integrated with the headlight visor, and gives you all the information you need: speedometer, clock, twin tripmeter, fuel gauge, and more. The CRF250L Rally’s digital instrument cluster tucks in behind the rally-style windscreen, just like the big Dakar bikes.
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.
With its long seat and fold-up frame-mounted passenger footpegs, the CRF250L models are fully equipped to carry a passenger so you can share the fun.
