Heroic podium speeches start with heroic holeshots—if you’re not on it from the second the gate drops, the other guys are gonna eat your lunch. That’s why you need to be on a Honda CRF250R. Because it’ll be you who’s doing the feeding—feeding the rest of the field your roost. High-revving DOHC engine. Fine-tuned twin-spar aluminium chassis. The kind of fit, finish, and refined detail you see on factory bikes. The list of features goes on and on. It’s a complete package that’s ready to win, right off the showroom floor. All it takes is the right rider—and that’s where you come in.
Selectable HRC launch control provides a steady stream of torque for excellent performance on race starts. Easily selectable Standard, Smooth, and Aggressive riding modes enable simple tuning depending on rider preference or course conditions.
Revised internal suspension settings (fork has increased low-speed damping, while shock has increased low-speed compression and reduced high-speed compression), handling has been improved in the following areas: stability, tracking, turning and traction.
New lighter aluminium perimeter frame and aluminium swingarm are designed to achieve increased yaw-angle stiffness while retaining lateral and torsional stiffness, resulting in improved stability.
New cam profile delays opening of exhaust valves and has reduced valve overlap, resulting in improved torque and power in the 6,000-10,000 rpm range. Gear-position sensor added to allow dedicated ignition maps for each gear.
