It's a Crf250l with extra stuff bolted on.
It's gonna have around 20 hp, 14 ft-lbs and weight around 335 fuelled up.
20 hp is a little slim...my WR250X has 27 hp. C'mon Honda...I want this bike...give it at least 30 hp.
In Spain the crf250l 23cv
It makes that here to at the crank, the 20hp/14ft are motorcycle.com's dyno numbers.
Admittedly, anything under 450cc's just doesn't sound deep/big-bore or have enough hp/tq to get me fired up...really hope it's bigger than a 250, but I doubt it...
because for me with 30hp for offroad spare me!
It looks darn good. Someone already mentioned the 500 twin, but one does wonder what other Honda engines could be shoehorned into that 250 L frame with a little bit of spit, duct tape and bailng wire.
A lot of spit, duct tape & bailing wire...lol...& you can hear her say right at 5:44 "built large enough even for the big fat Americans..."
A cool looking bike indeed..
It is exactly what a lot of riders are looking for (including me). Hopefully they give it more than 20 hp. Not the end of the world, nothing a big bore kit couldn't fix I guess.
Ok Mr Honda, now with 400-450cc and 40 HP please?
With 450cc+ it'd be my next bike, cooler than the 1000 rally & lighter/quicker... no doubt about it.
I've owned a lot of bikes & currently on my 5th street-legal Crf450X...there is a lot of thoughtful design going into Honda's machines, not just from a performance perspective, but when servicing/working on them...it's made me a big Honda fan.
If they plan to sell these in Europe, which I think they do, patent registered long ago? They gonna have to make it Euro4 and with ABS.
I can't tell for sure but other than being painted black and having rear footpegs attached to it, does the rear subframe look different, possibly made of steel? Why else would Honda feel the need to paint it?
The frame / subframe is almost certainly made of steel... Looks same as crf l/m
It's black for looks? The CRF250M uses that black frame.
