CRF250R 2024


We move faster. The CRF250R now has the exact same HRC-developed chassis as the two-times MXGP championship-winning CRF450R. A full 3.8kg lighter, it also has updated Showa suspension and steering geometry. The 249.9cc DOHC engine’s top-end is bolstered by strong mid-range and now, an even stronger bottom-end for blistering drive. Putting the power to the ground are a reinforced clutch and slick-shifting 6-speed gearbox, plus HRC Launch Control and 3-Mode EMSB (Engine Mode Select Button). Aggressive, minimal body work lets you move freely. If you’re ready for serious competition, make the CRF250R your tool of choice. It’s what it’s built for.

Razor-sharp, lightweight chassis

The tapered aluminium twin-spar frame now features narrower main tubes and a new rigidity balance – with 20% less lateral stiffness – to ramp up turn-in, mid-corner and exit performance. Both top and bottom yokes and swingarm are tuned to match. The steering geometry is sharper, with increased ride height and ground clearance.

New Showa suspension

The fully adjustable 49mm Showa steel spring front fork has an extra 5mm stroke, and a full re-valve for increased front-end grip and rut ride-over. Also fully adjustable, the Showa rear shock has new, larger valving and a lightweight steel spring for faster response and bump absorption. The Pro-Link ratio is also re-set to match.

Go in fast, come out faster

You’ll want to put the CRF250R’s new chassis to good use. So, adding to the 249.9cc DOHC engine’s incredible top-end power, we’ve injected it with an extra 15% more torque between 6-10,000rpm from a larger airbox, steeper injector angle, redesigned cylinder head and single-muffler exhaust. The radiators are the same size, but 6% more efficient.

Engineered performance

High-quality engineering is part of the CRF DNA. For complete lubrication under extreme conditions, the oil pathway around the cylinder head has been optimised, alongside double springs for the intake valves and press-fit cam sprocket for more accurate, high-rpm valve timing. To handle a much stronger output, we’ve added an extra clutch plate. And, for perfect drive, all 5 gearbox ratios have been revised and strengthened. Shifting’s smoother, too.

HRC Launch Control

Developed with direct input from Honda’s pro racers, HRC Launch Control has 3 operating levels and gives the CRF250R an advantage right out of the gate. Level 1 operates at 8,000rpm and is suitable for muddy conditions–or more inexperienced riders. Level 2 is the basic setting for dry conditions and runs at 8,500rpm. Level 3 launches at 9,500rpm and is designed for expert riders.

Engine Mode Select Button (EMSB)

MX tracks are unpredictable, so it helps to be able to tailor the engine’s character to suit what you’re racing against. Mode 1 serves up a balanced power and torque delivery, suitable for the majority of conditions. Mode 2 smooths out power and torque, for improved rear wheel traction on slippery or muddy ground while Mode 3 punches aggressively, for dealing with deep sand.

Slimmer bodywork and easier maintenance

The seat is shorter, lighter and 10mm lower at the rear to open up movement around the machine. The sidepanels and radiator shrouds are also slimmer, lighter and attach with just four bolts each side for fast, easy access. An adjustable-position aluminium Renthal Fatbar (839) is standard for total feel and control.
