The 2017 Honda CRF250L and the Honda CRF250-Rally use a different ECU as the 2016 Honda CRF250L, some of the modifying parts will not work anymore. Also the throttle body is now 38mm as it was 36mm for the 2016 CRF250L.
Both the 2017 CRF250L and CRF250-Rally have a newly designed airbox, and the airfilters are likely not compatible with previous models.
The exhaust system has a larger-diameter exhaust head pipe to provide better response and better power in the low and midrange rpm, it is teamed with a new muffler.

I cannot understand why in most other countries the Honda CRF250 Rally comes with ABS but in Thailand it is not available, not even as option????
I’m sure that the Honda CRF250-Rally not having ABS is a cost issue. Adding ABS to a motorcycle like the Honda CRF250 Rally will likely be an additional 15,000 THB, at the price range of 185,000 THB the Honda CRF250 Rally would have to compete with a whole other line of competition.
I have looked at the CRF250 Rally and can only think what a ugly bike. How can Honda make something that hideous?
When I saw the first Kawasaki Versys and the Ducati Multistrada I had the same idea, how could a manufacturer make something like that. But I tested both bikes and I extremely quickly forgot how they looked, as the riding was awesome… and now that we are a years later and we can look back on sales statistics we can see that both “ugly” bikes sold like pancakes … Actually we’re now a few generations into both motorcycles and they still sell very good, okay the styling has changed … or did we as consumers changed?

Ha ha, you guys are all correct: dual sports tend to be the ugliest bikes on the planet. But that's good! Dual sport riders are in for the ride, the fun, the adventure, and not for the looks. We don't own super-expensive things that we take out on Sunday and drive to the local $4-coffee bar to sit there and explain to other riders how our bikes are so beautiful (funny, though, that after two years they only have 5,000 km on them). Dual sport riders tend to be more "real." Enjoy.
I have a question about the Honda CRF250L sold in Thailand, is that the regular CRF250L or the CRF250L/A?
The 2017 Honda CRF250L sold in Thailand is the regular CRF250LDH, which comes without ABS. The 2017 Honda CRF250L/A with ABS (which can be switched off for the rear wheel) is not available in Thailand at this time.
The only CRF250L with ABS is the Honda CRF250L Rally
