Koh Kood: Thanks for the pictures of the new gray color option.
any changes besides color?
keeping the tool kits too
They came with a tool kit? Was very bummed mine didn't come with something like bike did years ago
that is what i thought...that they cheaped out. but others both in the States and overseas appear to have received full tool kits. i got 2 allen wrenches and a helmet cord.
Oh you got ripped off... I got a plastic fuse puller too
Look under the seat they are hidden there and most dealers don't find them.
The sales staff didn't know of any changes.
They really only deal with the paper work anyway.
The tools aren't much to speak of for sure but thats on any of the Honda bikes even the twin only comes with a allen wrench and handle. The 4 stickers 2 large and 2 small go on the engine side panels and front rear fenders. The set up guys are just being lazy and don't want to put them on would be my guess or just hand them out. There not hidden, there in the box with mirrors and manual. I speak from experience.
That's about all that has to be done during set up, besides hooking up the battery.
for those who suggest the Rally is too small, i believe it has more than enough power for the trails for MOST riders depending on the load (rider plus gear). and it is surprisingly nice at secondary highway speeds. it has a sweet spot at 50-60 mph and feels like it will go forever. i did 530 highway miles Saturday and enjoyed every bit except for the Interstate...due to time constraints I did have to take it on the primary highway and it will go 65-75+ mph but the buzziness (as with ANY 250) takes some of the joy out of the ride after a while (and i don't care how big a bike i ride, i detest the interstate anyway). the Rally is a wonderful little bike: great design with the new frame, bodywork and windscreen, plus we all know what a solid, reliable thumper the CRF has been for decades! good job HONDA!
oh yeah, that too!
some tools are better than no tools...especially if I paid full price! at least mine came with the HRC stickers!!! I will look under the seat just to be sure but what little I found was in the "tool box"
Cheap shite oem tools in a manufacturers toolkit are pretty much as good as no tools. We all know this and everyone, EVERYONE i know puts together their own kit. It's a given.

Given the quality and the possibility of damage you're better off without them, get some quality tools
Are you in town? Let's ride and get Mile One burgers!
My thoughts too. We have NO roads here with speeds over 100kph. most are 80-90kph for main "highways". back country for DAYS. I think the 250 rally is the perfect bike for NL!
mon dieu, No! the burger looks great and im sure it is god’s country up there in BC but my college years in Vermont drove me south!!! thanks for the invite tho...perhaps in the summer?
