The dual sport bikes are starting to conquer more and more terrain with every year that passes, as their versatile character attracts many fans.
One of the latest dual purpose motorcycle launched by Honda is the 2012 CRF250L. The bike is powered by a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve, 249cc single engine that features Honda’s proprietary Programmable Fuel Injection (PGM-FI), a gear-driven counter-balancer and a very compact cylinder head. Honda claims that its engine is able to offer 77-mpg fuel economy while giving the bike a range of around 154 miles from its 2.0-gallon tank.
The engine is mounted on a steel twin-spar frame which is light yet rigid. As far as suspensions go, the Honda CRF250L sports a front 43mm inverted fork which offers 8.7 inches of travel up and a preload-adjustable Pro-Link rear shock with 9.4 in. of travel.
The stopping power is assured by a single twin-piston caliper/256mm disc combo up front and a single-piston caliper and 220mm disc at the rear.
