"Adventure touring continues to grow in popularity, and our customers have shown that small-displacement motorcycles can be extremely effective in this application, whether that means making epic journeys or the daily urban commute. We really wanted to build on the capabilities of the CRF250L and open up new opportunities for riders both young and old, and the CRF250 Rally brings the spirit of rally-raid racing to every ride."
Although the Rally is based on the CRF250L, it features a completely unique look with nearly full coverage bodywork around the engine, the tall Dakar Rally inspired front end with asymmetrical headlights and a new LCD dash. The engine gets a few changes too including a larger 38mm throttle body, revised airbox, intake and larger header.
