Description

What does it feel like to win? What does it sound like? What does it take to win? Motocross isn’t a sport for the timid. When you show up at that starting gate, both you and your bike need to be ready to grab the holeshot and hang on to it until the checkered flag. That’s why Honda is determined to give you the best bike in the 250 class, the all-new 2018 CRF250R. Major upgrades everywhere, including a new DOHC engine featuring increased power and higher redline, give you the advantages you need and make the CRF250R an absolute holeshot machine.

The “Absolute Holeshot” philosophy that helped revolutionize the latest-generation CRF450R now makes its way to the all-new CRF250R, a model that has earned no fewer than nine AMA Supercross championships and two AMA Motocross championships over the years. Updates are aimed at achieving maximum power (particularly at high revs) and superb handling, the vastly updated four-stroke engine now featuring a dual-overhead-cam design, twin exhaust ports, and more over-square dimensions. Mass is lower and more centralized, through vehicle-packaging updates like a titanium fuel tank and extruded-aluminum subframe brackets, while a lighter aluminum frame with optimized flex characteristics helps handling and rider feedback. An electric starter, powered by a lightweight lithium-iron phosphate battery, is now standard.
