Most adventure bikes are somewhat large and heavy. They're built for the long rigorous trips, but Honda had a new take on this style motorcycle with the CRF250L Rally. It took the regular CRF250L and added some additional equipment to make it a fun adventuring beast.
For the most part, the Rally version of the CRF250L is the same. It has the same 249cc engine, most of the same parts, and essentially the same mannerisms. However, Honda did make some changes.
The company put a bigger tank (2.7 gallons) and a new wind screen, headlight, fairing, and instrument cluster. There's also some of the plastic pieces.
The suspension was upgraded (30mm longer fork) and some better components in the rear, too. These suspension changes improve ground clearance and add more travel, allowing you to tackle a little rougher terrain.
The regular CRF250L comes with a $5,149 price tag and the CRF250L Rally costs $5,899. Add ABS and you're looking at another $300 for either version of the bike.
I love these dual sport bikes. They don't have a ton of power, but that's not really the point with these. It's more about exploring and having lower-speed fun. Look around for a used version and you should be able to find the regular version of the bike for way less than $5,000.
