2009 Honda CRF250R - (Australia)

September 9th, 2008

A pure, race-bred heir to the all-conquering CRF450R, the CRF250R is a commanding presence on Supercross and Motocross racetracks around the world.

Benefiting directly from its big brother's technologies and componentry, the smaller powerhouse is renowned for its fast-revving and powerful 4-stroke engine and unique dual silencer exhaust system.

The impressive acceleration delivered by the CRF250R's high-revving liquid-cooled 4-valve Unicam engine is now smoother, with enhanced low to mid-range torque feel and effortless gear changes.

This has been achieved through the introduction of new gear technology featuring a design arrangement that minimises friction and eases engagement; additional components have all been revised to optimise movement of fluid, resulting in smoother acceleration.

In addition to the bike being more compact in order to reduce weight wherever possible, the rugged frame and chassis have also been trimmed resulting in beautifully adept handling.

Suspension settings have been refined and matched by new steering damper settings for superb control and traction on even the most punishing and least predictable surfaces.

In addition to more aggressive styling, the CRF250R's new Works-type handlebar design features longer grips with longer tapered cushions and deep pre-cut wire grooves for tighter, slip-free wire grip.

Available in Australia in October, recommended retail for the CRF250R remains unchanged from last year at $9990.
