2020 CRF 250 L
« on: April 27, 2020, 12:12:39 pm »
I really like the black wheels and graphics  :thumleft: As a former Rally owner I don't think the extra couple of thousand you pay for the Rally is worth it vs the L. If they could only bring it out with a better rear shock and get rid of that chrome tacky looking gas cap  :o Rumours for some major upgrades for the 2021 CRF 250, lets see what Honda is going to do.

Could they just throw the CB500X engine in there and be done with it.
Bigger tank too and it would be the ultimate tour bike. :thumleft: :drif:

CB500X is a great motor, just enough power with long service intervals  :thumleft: Bigger tank yes, IMS makes one as far as I know. Bring out a CRF 300 L single and a CRF 500 twin with adjustable suspension :deal:

Every manufacturer needs some WD's in their R&D dept.

But they would never agree and in any case their ideas would be quashed by the marketing dept.  :xxbah:

The 250 is being discontinued so 2021 may just be the last of the current production line. There is a replacement n the offer but very thin on details. Hopefully it comes with the cbr300 motor. Itís a straight fit into the current 250,s frame. I love my 250l. Sometimes less is more especially under current circumstances

I heard the factory is shutting down for a month or two with the updated model that will follow thereafter
