LOCKED AND LOADED
Competition never rests, which suits us just fine – why should it? Our new CRF250R is much lighter and armed with a brand-new frame, swingarm and Showa suspension. The engine? Even more powerful. Even more usable. Looking for results? This is the bike to have in your pit box.
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.
CUTTING LAP TIMES – IT’S WHAT WE DO
Ready for a major upgrade? The CRF250R now has the exact same HRC-developed chassis as the CRF450R. As a result, it’s a full 3kg lighter packing new steering geometry, lateral frame rigidity reduced 20% with top and bottom yokes, and swingarm, tuned to match. There are new settings for the Showa suspension – plus 5mm extra stroke for the 49mm USD fork – as well as lightweight spring in the shock and new Pro-Link ratio. And you feel the results instantly. Improved traction, front and rear, with smoother bump absorption and rut-riding ability.
