Buyer's Guide > CRF250L
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Honda updated its entry-level dual sport in 2017, adding a new throttle body, new exhaust, and new airbox; as a result, peak torque and peak horsepower are up. Bodywork has been updated a bit as well, and gauges are revised. The price is up $300, but this machine is still a smart buy for a beginning adventure rider, or a savvy veteran looking to add a tough second machine to the stable.
