It’s the little things that make the difference between that sweet taste of champagne and finishing somewhere in the back of the pack. Because, face it, every racer wants to win, and most motocross bikes these days are pretty darn good. That’s why you have to bring your best to every moto. And that’s why Honda is bringing some updates to what was already the best bike in the class, our CRF250R.
This year's fine-tuning gives the CRF250R what it needs to keep you in front. New, larger radiators handle the output from a more powerful engine, which includes more cam lift and new titanium exhaust valves. Larger-diameter muffler pipes and a new resonator also help increase power. In terms of suspension, the Showa® Air Fork is five millimeters longer, and now features a Schrader valve to make adjusting the balance chamber easier. There’s even a new chain-roller diameter—our engineers haven’t missed a thing. And it’s all with one goal in mind: Giving you the best 250 MX bike there’s ever been. Mission accomplished!
