    Neither version, CRF250L or CRF250L Rally are as expensive as I would have thought. The rally is starting to look like a KLR.

    I would like to see it as a 350 or 400. In BC when you get over 400 cc the insurance almost doubles.

    The updates are decent. The extra power and more suspension should put it closer to the WR; it still will come up short, though, in that comparison. I'm still pissed at Honda for ruining any and all potential of this bike by putting a sub-par part in it that compromises the dependability of the motor. By the way, you beat me to the punch by about an hour on posting this thread lol.

    346 lbs for a 250cc seems a might porky. Or put another way the weight would be more acceptable if Honda offered a 350cc or 400cc motor capable of posting more exciting rally times.Johnny-Campbell-Stage-1.jpgimages-2.jpeg
