By their very definition, dual-sport bikes are a compromise - part dirt, part street. The often-conflicting requirements of these two applications can be a real challenge for engineers. Too dirt-focused and dual-sport bikes can wear themselves out on the street, too street-focused and they become clumsy off-road. Luckily Honda engineers have extensive experience in both disciplines and a multitude of high tech components to draw on when creating the perfect dual-sport.
More than just a smooth gravel-road runner the CRF250L really shines off-road. Rocks, mud, sand? Tight single track? Bring it on. A long travel inverted fork up front, perfectly matched Pro-link rear suspension, generous ground clearance and slim off-road ergonomics will have even hardcore dirt riders feeling right at home. As capable as the CRF is off-road it won't suffer when it returns to the pavement either, the counterbalanced single is remarkably smooth even at highway speeds and the under-stressed, liquid-cooled design means it’ll run down that highway all day or all week without worry. Fuel injection is the icing on the cake helping to ensure easy starts, automatic altitude compensation and exceptional fuel economy.
CRF250L wherever you ride.
