The performance of this motorbike is indeed the same as the CRF250 Rally. Even the Honda CRF250L can be an alternative to the Kawasaki KLX250 which both carry 250cc engine. Both are equally imported motorcycles, so don’t be surprised if the price of the CRF250L is quite expensive. But the money we spend will not be in vain, because it will get the best trail bike in its class. Now to find out in detail the specifications and prices of the Honda CRF250L, please see below.

Honda CRF250L will increase competition on dirt bikes in several countries. This motorbike will compete against the Kawasaki KLX 250 by relying on a 249.6cc DOHC one-cylinder engine. Honda also provided him with a liquid cooling system or Liquid Cooled. The energy expended is quite large, because it reaches 24 Horsepower at 8,500 rpm and peak torque reaches 22.6 Nm at 6,750 Rpm. The energy released will be channeled to the 6-speed manual transmission system.
Honda also embeds PGM-FI technology into the CRF250L which makes the performance more responsive and more perfect combustion. With this engine, the Honda CRF250L can pass the off-road terrain perfectly. Torque and energy are also balanced, making it suitable as a trail bike. Moreover, this motorbike has a sleek body and is quite light in weight, so that all-terrain can be passed smoothly. Even the body is smaller than the CRF250 Rally which makes it more agile.
Motocross-style design is the main advantage of this motorbike. As for the dimensions have a length of 2,195 mm, width 815 mm, and a height of 1,195 mm. Unfortunately, the weight of the Honda CRF250L is heavier than the Kawasaki KLX 250. If The KLX weighs 135 kg, so this motor weighs 146 kg. One of the factors that makes it quite heavy is the use of the Upside Down front suspension that we don’t see on the Kawasaki KLX 250. Then for the wheelbase measuring 1,445 mm.
The design is indeed similar to the Honda CRF250 Rally. It’s just that the back of the CRF250L is made slimmer. Similarly, the front, because it uses a headlamp with a boxing design. Also, this motorbike has a 7.8-liter fuel tank. The tank is smaller than the CRF250 Rally which can hold as much as 10.1 liters of fuel. This is inseparable from the design of the Honda CRF250L which is made more streamlined so that it is more agile through the off-road terrain.
Fuel consumption is also very economical because it only takes one liter of fuel to travel 33.3 km. That means this motorbike can roam as far as 250 km when the gas tank is full. PGM-FI technology combined with a 249cc 1-cylinder engine makes it even more economical. The torque produced is also so large that it is not inferior to the dirt bike made by Kawasaki, Suzuki, or Yamaha, which are priced at Honda CRF250L.
Upside Down front suspension will optimize the stability of the CRF250L. The diameter of the front suspension is quite large, which is 43mm. Then there is the Pro-Link mono-shock rear suspension which makes it even more comfortable to drive. Then for the frame to adopt a frame made of steel, so it is very strong in holding the weight of the motor and the rider. This trail bike is also clad in a red body that blends with white and sporty graphics.
ABS braking system is also owned by this motorbike. The technology will optimize front brake discs measuring 256mm with twin-piston calipers. While the rear brake has a diameter of 220mm. Interestingly, we can turn off the ABS feature on the rear wheels, so that helps when crossing the off-road terrain. Then for the front tire measuring 3.00-21 51P and the rear tire measuring 120 / 80-18M / C 62P.
Comparable to the price of the Honda CRF250L we also get a digital meter panel that will display information more clearly. Its features are better than the Kawasaki KLX 250. But this makes the price of the Honda CRF250L priced one level more expensive. The reason this motorbike has adopted Upside Down front suspension which is rarely owned by the motor in its class.
