Honda Japan gets 2021 CRF250L and CRF250L Rally

KUALA LUMPUR: Good news for people living in Japan, as Honda has launched the 2021 CRF250L and CRF250L Rally in its home country. While both the bikes feature the same basis, the latter feature a sportier intent along with a few upgraded components.

Powering the 2021 CRF250L and CRF250L Rally is the same tried and tested 249cc single-cylinder DOHC engine with revised air filter, intake camshaft, ignition timing, and exhaust. The said unit makes 24 PS of power at 9,000 rpm and 23 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The mill is paired to the same old six-speed transmission that has been revised for the 2021 model year. The gear ratios for one to five gears are shorter and are taller for the sixth gear. The clutch lever effort has been reduced by 20 percent thanks to the new slip and assists clutch.

Both the motorcycles feature an LCD instrument panel with large numerals with fuel gauge and gear position indicator. On the side is an ABS switch-off button for when the rider plans an off-road trip.
