As part of a dealer meeting during which the new colours for Honda’s Super Cub 50/110 Street, Super Cub C125 and Monkey 125 were announced – visitors were given sneak peak of the new colour schemes the Japanese factory’s CB250R, CRF250L and CRF250L Rally. And we’ve got some photos, courtesy of our good friends YoungMachine.

The CB250R (or CB300R if you’re not in Japan) gets a new Matte Metallic Blue colour scheme, with the odd bit of gold and black detailing. The CRF 250L Rally only gets a slight update, with the overall colour scheme staying much the same as the previous generation machine. Essentially, the CRF logo has been inverted from black to white – and the graphics have been subtly changed.

But the big news is that Honda’s iconic CRF250L is finally getting a bit of a styling overhaul. Since it was first launched in 2012, Honda has generally stuck to a Red, White and Black colour scheme (with the odd variation along the way) – but now, it looks like customers will be able to opt for a Black CRF250L. We reckon it looks sharp, with a blacked exhaust shield, front and rear mudguards, and wheel rims.


The latest generation bikes are expected to be available in Japan in the next few months – and although we’ve not heard anything official from Honda UK at this stage, chances are these bikes will be on their way to British shores in the not too distant future too.
