Ahead of the official launch, the Japanese factory has released the first photos and information about its updated CRF250L and CRF250 Rally.


The standard CRF250L has been tweaked to improve both road and off-road performance – with a new design inspired by the CRF450R motocross machine. The Rally version looks much the same as before, with an oversized fairing and the Dakar style LED headlight – but it’ll also get a larger fuel. Rumours suggest they’ll both also come kitted out with revised frames and longer travel suspension.


The two bikes will be powered by a new Euro 5 engine. We don’t know specifics just yet, but Honda has revealed that it’s optimised the intake and exhaust systems and fitted a new air filter. Chances are it’ll offer much the same performance as before, so expect around 25bhp and 23Nm of torque to play with.
