Anyone that spent a lot of time on the forum must have picked up that I often comment on the 250 Rally thread.....because I have the same idea but then I realise that selling my NC which is such a good bike on the long open road and having to do that now on a rally is not going to work.

Delay your decision until the 450L is here.

Nog nie seker nie Stoffel.  Daar is soveel teenstrydige inligting tans dat ek maar geduldig wag tot hy hier is.  Die paar videos wat ek al gekyk het lyk of dit die wag werd kan wees.

Look a 250 is what it is. It can do 120 all day when you hang on the cables but its not made to do that. It's perfect for slower more technical rides or the shorter commutes which makes it a very good all rounder. The new 450L will not be a bike that will replace the Rally for the simple fact it has a performance motor with short intervals unless you are only going to use it for off road trips. Most people who bought Rally's uses them for commuting and dirt riding so they really are dual purpose and perform that role very well.

Iím not yet buying the short service interval rumors.  I think itís going to be a bigger 250L version.

Maybe itís just wishful thinking, but Iím holding thumbs.

Thanks.
