Today I was at the Honda dealer in Prachuap Khirikhan and I saw a new Honda CRF 250 M.
New colours compared to the 250 L. The Price was 155.000 Bht. Cant find anything about this bike in this forum. Anybody who knows anything?
The Honda CRF250M is basically the Honda CRF250L with road tires and 17” wheels. The front tire is a IRC RX-01F E (110/70-17M/C 54S) and the rear tire is a IRC RX-01R (130/70-17M/C 62S).
Due to the small rear wheel size 18” on the CRF250L and 17” on the CRF250M the reduction ratios of the final drive is 2.785 on the CRF250M (which is 2.857 on the CRF250L). Both the CRF250L and CRF250M use the same gear ratio and the engine of both motorcycles is identical.
The Honda CRF250M is also 1 kilogram heavier (145kg) than the CRF250L (144kg).
