    hmm thats the same speedo unit as my cb500x.. me thinks this is a new platform entirely...

    if they weren't calling it a 250 I'd be much more optimistic admittedly

    We all have waited for years now for something like this...years.
    From the photos we know this much...the instrument cluster is the same as the 500x and 700x, frame and engine already exist in the 300 or 250 series.
    So what's new?.....Frame mounted body work...was that so hard Honda ??
    Now we have to wait. I am seriously looking at heavily modifying my WR250X , also looking at the Royal Enfield...don't laugh...a lot of riders have tackled some tuff ADV riding on a RE.
    There are alternatives out there...I can't believe the marketing folks from the major manufacturers can't see what I think is obvious.
    Of course...I am not a CMO, CFO or CEO..so my opinion may be misguided.

    I have found that the term "rocket " as a description can really cut a wide swath of meaning.

    True, as in, "If thrown off a cliff, the 250 rally would rocket to it's death".

    Me thinks the buzz around the latest BS speculative article is not the 250 Rally or the Factory 450 Rally...
    It's the customer spec 450 rally that Laia Sanz road in 2014. It's similar to the factory 450 but is intended for privateers to purchase and race. They've been working on it for years, a direct competitor to the KTM rally replica.

    So is this built around the 250L and not the 250R or 250X?

    Glove compartment. Now we are getting serious.

    That would be perfect for me to distribute my belongings.

    I'd buy one to convert to a crf500L rally lol

    I am still firmly in the camp that a 250 can't do it all (for me at least)
