The new CRF250RX arrives in cross-country specification to further strengthen Honda’s off-road line-up.
Sharing the frame and engine hardware of the CRF250R motocrosser, it is fully adapted to its role, with 8.5L fuel tank, forged aluminium sidestand and 18-inch rear wheel, plus revisions to power delivery and suspension settings. It also features 3-level HRC Launch Control as standard.
Honda’s CRF250R has shown itself a worthy weapon for battle in the hard-fought MX2 class. For the new model it made a giant leap, with a full model change that shared the ‘Absolute Holeshot’ philosophy of the 17YM CRF450R, featuring a new seventh-generation frame, revised geometry and Showa suspension – plus a brand new DOHC engine.
Now Honda is expanding the CRF250R platform and adding a cross-country option to the range; the CRF250RX mirrors the CRF450RX and takes the new CRF250R as a base. Fast, agile and easy to ride, it’s a potent machine, with modifications that tailor it perfectly for its new role, making it equally at home speeding up a root-strewn climb or slicing precious seconds off a special Enduro test.
