2017 Honda CRF250L

The 2017 Honda CRF250L gets updated this year, and while we don’t get the larger displacement top end in the CB300F, the CRF250L will have more power.

To get there, Honda has increased the size of the airbox, throttle body (by 2mm) and exhaust header, as well as redesigned the muffler. Before you even fire up the engine, you will notice the CRF450R-inspired graphics.

More than simply a dual sport motorcycle, the CRF250L is also a great commuter bike and urban exploring machine. Over nine inches of wheel travel at both ends gives the CRF250L off-road credibility, even though the suspension in non-adjustable.

Also new this year is an ABS option, which is a must-have $300 option if you’re doing most of your riding on the pavement.
