we stock a rack we designed ourselves, to have additional grab-handles, and the grab handles also prevent luggage from sagging if/when placed SIDEWAYS...


and we stock another rack too, see pics...

...and then some pics of an Indonesian couple, riding 2-up on a CRF 250 Rally (sponsored by KLIM and Honda, Touratech and Castrol); their bike has some nice trick parts on; crash-bars were made in Indonesia by his friend, more when they pop in again later today, before heading up West Coast of South Africa, on their way to.....JAPAN!


Cheers

Chris what does the bottom rack go for and does it fit the Rally ? It looks like a L in the pic ? Any side pics available ? Not that I have a L or Rally but maybe someday.

>SIDE pics added, HalfDaft...
That rack consists of 3 parts, left pannier rack, right and top luggage rack...
Left and Right pannier racks ONLY are...R2900 for the set.
ADD R895 for the luggage rack.
NOTE: that GREY Luggage rack bolts then onto pannier racks, so it 'needs' the pannier racks (i.e. is not a stand-alone part), which is why we then developed a stand-alone rack, the ones in the other pictures.
That is INDEED a CRF 250L, we think/feel the pannier racks will fit the Rally, and we know the black luggage rack will fit...
The BLACK luggage rack is R1195 incl.
Hope that helps!

Ok thanks, I have not read up to much on how the two models compare but I think the Rally's side panels stands out a bit further than the L thus bit wider at the back. I like the rack and also a good way to keep the plastics in good shape  :thumleft: Will certainly send a PM if my ship comes in  :P

I see many Honda dealerships offering the Rally for around 75 - 77k now ?

Except for the grey slab side, I like it better.  Can't wait for a white/red/blue version.

Blauth you know the Japanese, only thing that will change on that bike is colours for the next 8 years or however long it sells for. I have heard stories of a 450 version but no news or info even at Eicma so not sure if it's coming at all or moved out for a year or two. Thing is the market for small dual sport bikes is almost zero and the Rally like it or not might be the only choice if you want something new.

On the inter webs there's few threads of guys that have stripped off some of the crap from these bikes and fitted decent exhaust etc.

Tail tidy, remove plastic cowling on engine, new FMF exhaust, lighter riser bars will drop 7-10 kg I'd say?

Have a suspension guru stiffen up the fork, tons of replacement shock options, tubeless with decent tyres and hey - bike's looking pretty good and will have way more pep.

Definitely on my radar.

Just expensive when you see that you can buy a hardly used DRZ400SM or similar for half the price

I don't think it is fair to complain about the bike's performance. Everyone knows its a 250, and you cannot compare it to a 650 or bigger bike. Being a dual sport, it's naturally going to be heavier than it's CRF sibling without all the extra's.
I also think it's a good thing to keep the same engine for as long as possible in the bike. It will make getting spare parts much easier.

I have changed the pipe on mine to a Yoshi and I must say acceleration feels much quicker than my 660 ten but obviously doesn't have the top speed.  rally feels great off road front wheel has super light feel on gravel and sand so no tank slappers or butt clenching moments. Love this bike fully kitted for 10 days away in the northern Cape will let you guys know how it goes. Only carrying 5 extra litres of fuel so hope to make it though tankwa but I'm sure it's going to be a pleasure in the cedarburg sand.

What's your range on the standard tank?
