FIRST LOOK – HONDA’S 250CC RALLY RACER
A mini rally bike anyone? Honda are being very proactive in the adventure market of late and are set to unveil their CRF250 Rally..
Not an all-out rally machine but certainly one of the sweetest looking concept bike’s we’ve seen in a while.
In a few days from now Honda will unveil their CRF250 Rally concept bike at the upcoming Osaka Motorcycle Show in Japan.
A CRF250 Rally is in the works…
Very much a concept bike for now, the CRF250 Rally is essentially a CRF250L with bodywork and styling based on the official HRC rally bikes as used by Joan Barreda and company.
Never designed to be a serious race tool, the CRF250L features a steel chassis and produces around 20bhp and weighs something in the region of 144.5kg when full of fuel.
We don’t have much more in the way of details, only that rally veteran Canadian Patrick Trahan raced a modified CRF250L in last year’s Merzouga Rally.
