We think motorcycles should be about getting out and enjoying the world around you. The sun, the smells, the wind, the weather. More reality and less virtual. And you know what’s even better? If you could find one bike that could do it all. Let you go exploring in the dirt. Zip along mountain roads. Commute to work every day. And even save you some money at the gas pump. Well, guess what—the CRF250L and new CRF250L Rally are going to be the perfect bikes for all those things.
First, the CRF250L: We’ve given it some great new updates for 2017. Some highlights: A larger throttle body improves the feel of the bike’s low- and mid-range power, as does the new muffler design, revised airbox, and larger diameter exhaust header. And check out its new graphic treatment, matched up to our CRF450R MX bike. The all-new CRF250L Rally gets the same updated engine as the standard 250L, but it also gets a larger fuel tank, totally new Dakar-style bodywork, handguards, a windscreen, skid plate and even more suspension travel. And both give you a great upright seating position that’s comfortable for longer rides, ideal for both urban traffic or out on the trail. They’re even available with optional ABS.
