2012 Honda CRF250L Announced for Europe But Not For America … Yet
Honda announced it will introduce the new CRF250L to Europe this year. North American availability has not been confirmed, though it appears the new dual-sport, which shares a similar engine to the Honda CBR250R, may soon be announced for these shores.
While there’s no official word on the Honda CRF250L in the U.S.,the liquid-cooled dual sport has already appeared in North America, appearing last weekend at the Montreal Motorcycle Show. A member of the ADVRider forum reports Honda Canada only received the CRF250L recently and the price is expected to be about CN$5000. That puts it close to the price of the ABS-enabled CBR250R.
Official specifications have yet to be announced, though Honda did confirm the CRF250L uses a twin-tube oval pipe steel frame, inverted forks, ProLink rear suspension and aluminum swingarm.
Honda Canada should make a formal announcement shortly, and hopefully American Honda will soon as well.
