2013 Honda CRF250M unveiled

Honda Thailand has just announced a supermoto version of the CRF250L the new version receives a re-badging and is now named the CRF250M. The main difference between the two versions is that the new ‘M’ version gets 17 inch wheels at both ends instead of the 21 inch front and the 18 inch rear. The suspension has been stiffened up a bit to better suite the street needs but maintains the existing USD forks and the Honda characteristic Pro-link rear suspension.

The CRF250M will be available in two colours, black red combo and all black and both get black coloured forks instead of the gold forks of the CRF250L. The specifications remain pretty much same apart from these minor changes. No word yet from Honda as to whether  either of these CRF’s the CRF250L or the CRF250M will make it to India, but we sure do wish these make it here. Take a look at the detailed specifications and photographs of the CRF250M below.
