Honda Crf 250L

Recommended Posts

So how much is it if you have put a order in allready?

Well thats still a big mystery along with weight and spec sheet myself I do not really want to pay more than 120 k however from his cbr 250 prices I know my dealer is not the cheapest and since he owns all the dealerships in krabi he has a bit of a monopoly on it time will tell.

Nice!!! Congrats!! I'll race you in the dirt on the CRF if and when it arrives... tongue.png

You're on Nikster! I'm a total dirt novice so you'll probably whoop my butt! When I rode a standard KLX250 around the Red Bull Enduro Park a couple weeks ago it was a blast! Can't wait to get out and about on this 350! Happy Trails! Tony

Don't worry I am even more of a novice, I have ridden in the dirt *once* which should make this all the more fun... 555 ...

As for delivery they said it comes in March which means it will be here March 31st. Nobody said anything about March 1st. Give it some time folks... I am not going to be back in CM until April anyway so no big deal here...

Seems below is all the info available at the moment

Official specifications have yet to be announced, though Honda did confirm the CRF250L uses a twin-tube oval pipe steel frame, inverted forks, ProLink rear suspension and aluminum swingarm.

Why would they not release the specs, surely if they are going to be available this month the basic specs will be finalised. I want to know how heavy it is and how good the suspension is.

Heavy and agricultural.

Honda always skimp on suspension unless its the MX/sports bikes.

Just look at the crap they put on the CBR150/250, stuff no better than mid 70s!

It is rumoured to be 120kg dry, which would be good enough at almost 10kg lighter than the KLX250 and with more power.

Was looking at the klx specs last night im sure it's 138kg can't really see the Honda being 120 kg any one no the weight difference between the engines,it's almost like Honda have forgot their realeasing this bike the other crf 250r announced after the 250l and had full specs ,price and release date.

The KLX is 138kg wet weight. I said the CRF is rumoured to be 120kg dry weight. The dry weight of the KLX is probably about 130kg

Seriously?

Any manufacturer trying to meet the sub 150K mark for a 250cc+ machine has to skimp somewhere. The Ninja 250R uses a 37mm Showa fork. The CBR 250R uses a....37mm Showa fork. Granted both are non-adjustable and from all reports the CBR is sprung softer, but to single out Honda for such a comment is a bit silly.

Well looks like the rumours were wrong. That is bad news if it is true, I won't be buying a CRF either if it is.

That is the same weight as a KTM Enduro 690r, <deleted> are they thinking.....

i suppose price will be a big factor for competing against the KLX for some, though i guess it 'd wanna be below the 120-130k mark to stop people buying the KLX instead. I wonder if they will do a motard version?

At last good work has a clock and fuel gauge too woo hoo

Definitely bit on the heavy side all we need now is price and arrival date.

If only kawasaki did the klx 140 in a road going version would be perfect at 72000 bht 90 kg and has carb so can gain a little more power.

The ONLY thing the CRF will beat the KLX on now is price by the looks of it....
