For comfort, mobility derived from the high eye point that only off-road bikes can provide and pleasant riding characteristics are put to use to allow the rider to experience the exhilarating feeling found only on the CRF250L, in all kinds of situations.
The handlebar provides an upright and comfortable riding position achievable by setting the best-suited height, tilt adjustment, and downward angle. The grip is now longer (10 mm greater than the XR250' s) and adopts the same grip pattern used on the CRF motocrosser series. Its shape makes it easy to grip and less likely to tire a rider even on a long-hour ride. The seat has just the right hardness and a flat shape to allow the rider to enjoy a variety of situations from riding around town to touring over a forested route. Coupled with a slim and compact vehicle body, it allows a smooth weight shift.
In addition, seat height is set at 875 mm, to secure excellent ground reach.To provide leg comfort, the main step is made large (21 mm longer and 9 mm wider from back to front than the XR250) and has a slip-resistant shape to produce a comfortable ride, bring the rider a comfortable ride, whether it' s in the middle of the city or off road somewhere in the country.

Even though the CRF250L uses an inverted front fork, its turning angle can extend to 45° on both the left and right sides.This feature was added in consideration of the need to maneuver narrow alleys in an urban area or make a U turn on a wooded road.
