Competitive, Durable and Formidable
Honda’s next generation CRF250R has a brand new DOHC engine, revised geometry including a lower center of gravity for improved stability and traction as well as a re-designed dual exhaust and intake system, making it Honda’s most competitive, durable and formidable 250cc race machine to date.
The 2018 CRF250s performance parameters, in terms of output and handling ability, have been completely revised and elevated with only one aim in mind; to put a winning machine in the hands of those who can win.
The new DOHC engine gives the 2018 CRF250R a 9% power increase with its over-square bore and stroke, bigger valves and revised inlet/exhaust setup makes a hefty 4kW more power up top, for far longer, with extended over-rev and higher redline. Out of the gate, and lap after lap, the 18YM CRF250R is built to pull out an advantage and cut lap times.
The CRF250R’s new fully mass-centralised chassis – identical to the current 18YM CRF450R – can put the extra power to effective use, its geometry and lower centre of gravity drive the rear tyre into the ground harder. This redesign will ensure the CRF250R achieves outstanding hole shot start acceleration and much greater engine performance.
