Today Tuesday morning and Honda Thailand has decided to launch the Honda CRF250 Rally in Thailand. Of course they have not much to loose as the Honda CRF250 Rally is made in Thailand and if the sales numbers are disappointing they can always move the domestic production to export side.
We are one of the first who have seen the Honda CRF250 Rally, the engine is retuned and the exhaust system has been reworked, not that you see much of that from the outside. The good part is that the CRF250-Rally is pumping 2 horsepower that the 2016 Honda CRF250L.
For the regular 2017 Honda CRF250L, the engineers and marketing people were reluctant to tell us if the engine of the 2017 Honda CRF250L also got the engine upgrade.
Still we not sure how many CRF250-Rally’s Honda Thailand plans to sale, it is pretty funny to see a 170cm Thai person walking next to CRF250 Rally. The motorcycle is clearly made for the somewhat larger people among us.
Officially the Honda CRF250 Rally will be in the official Honda showrooms before the weekend, the price of the bike is for now unknown – we of course will update you on that.
