Boon Siew Honda Sdn Bhd (BSH) has unveiled the new CRF250L and CRF250 Rally, designed for both on-road and off-road use, priced at RM24,378.94 and RM28,618.94 respectively, inclusive of GST, excluding road tax, insurance and registration.
Both models come with two years or 20,000km manufacturing warranty, whichever comes first.
The CRF250L is powered by a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder DOHC engine which delivers 24hp at 8,500rpm and peak torque of 23Nm at 6,750rpm, paired to a six-speed manual transmission.
A primary balance shaft further reduces vibration and the six-speed gearbox and clutch are manufactured to cope with the extra stress of riding off-road, while the 10.7 kW heat-release radiator features a thin guide-ring cooling fan to maintain even temperatures at low speeds.
Its frame is constructed from steel, with twin oval-section main spars and a semi-double cradle and new bodywork which draws its influence from the minimalism for the CRF450R MX for a sharper, slimmed-down look, while a digital dash adds a tachometer and fuel gauge, and ABS is fitted as standard, with the option of disengaging it for the rear brake.
The CRF250L comes finished in Honda’s Extreme Red racing colour as a base, with black and white accents drawn directly from HRC’s factory machines.
The CRF250 Rally is powered by a 250cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder DOHC engine which generates 24hp at 8,500rpm and 23Nm maximum torque at 6,750rpm, mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
It uses the CRF250L as its base, adding a wide range of changes, with styling inspiration drawn fully on the HRC CRF450 Rally race machine.
At the front, the ‘floating’ screen, fairing and radiator shrouds provide wind protection, with the rest of the machine showing off minimal MX style.
The headlight is a compact, asymmetric dual LED unit while the rear light, LED indicators and number plate bracket tuck discreetly away.
Its frame is constructed from steel, with twin oval-section main spars and a semi-double cradle and the new digital dash includes a fuel gauge and tachometer.
A wheelbase of 1,455mm is matched to a 28.1° rake with 114mm trail and ground clearance of 270mm, 15mm more than the CRF250L, and it has a wet weight of 157kg.
