Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) has updated the CRF 250L for 2019. The new model receives a style upgrade with an on/off road design inspired by the CRF 250R. The most notable changes are its new color scheme, new red headlight cover, bronze front fork, black top and bottom bridge, and black rims. The new model also features a digital meter panel.
The CRF 250L is powered by a liquid-cooled, single cylinder, four-stroke PGM-Fi DOHC engine with four valves and electric start. It produces 23.7-PS at 8,500 rpm and 23.1-Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. It’s paired to a six-speed manual that drives the rear wheels via chain drive.
It features an inverted telescopic front fork and a pro-link rear swing arm, riding on 21-inch spoke wheels in front and 17-inch spoke wheels in the rear. It’s brought to a stop with disc brakes in the front and rear. This gives it a ground clearance of 257 mm and a seat height of 881 mm. It tips the scales with a wet weight of 144 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 7.8 liters.
“We, at Honda, are pleased to announce that the New CRF250L is set to excite off-road enthusiasts and gearheads to take it for a spin once again. The new model is not only perfect for the tough terrains and dirt roads but can also be used for daily commute and leisure,” said Hervic Villa, Department Manager for Motorcycle Planning.
The new CRF 250L updates Honda Philippines’ lineup of CRF offerings, which include the CRF 150L, and CRF 250 Rally.
The new CRF 250L is now available at an SRP of P232,900.
