Honda’s all-new CRF250L to hit Australia later this year

5 years ago

Honda Australia have announced the all-new CRF250L will hit Australia shores in the second half of 2012.

To celebrate this release, Honda will be offering a special introductory price of $5,990 (MLP) for the newly developed on/off road model.

Offering riders both beginner and advanced an agile ride in a wide range of riding environments, the CRF250L boasts impressive agility and high road-holding capability from urban to off-road riding.

The CRF250L is powered by a liquid-cooled, 250cc, four-stroke DOHC, single-cylinder engine with powerful output in the low-to-mid rpm range. Low-friction technologies including an offset cylinder are also employed to ensure excellent fuel efficiency.

The newly designed frame makes use of a steel twin-tube design to offer a nimble ride while ensuring both agility and stability, and the oval cross-sectional shape of the main pipe helps boost rigidity while enabling a slim vehicle body.

Styling has been refined into a sharper and more aggressive tone while inheriting the concept of ‘centralised mass with triangular proportions’ which is a key feature and basic principle of Honda’s CRF motocross series. This design asserts a new identity for the next era of Honda’s CRF range.

Other features include a headlight visor that enhances a tough and muscular look, a multi-reflector headlight with superb visibility, a multifunctional digital meter, skid plates that prevent mud and gravel from damaging the engine and more.
