HONDA UPDATES DUAL SPORT RIDE
Honda’s first dual sport bike, the XL250, set the standard for small capacity multi-purpose motorcycles. In 2013, Honda takes the original dual sport recipe, adds some new, updated modern technological ingredients and hopes for similar greatness. The CRF250L sports a new fuel-injected, liquid cooled single-cylinder DOHC four-valve engine and six speed gearbox driving its 18 inch rear wheel. At the front end, 43mm inverted Showa forks give this dual sport a motocross look. Although it won’t run like a motocross bike, as an intro into dual sport riding, most would be happy with it.
