Perfect balance. In a golfer, it can lead to longer drives. In a motocross bike, it can lead to shorter lap times. The Honda CRF250R can't help your golf game, but it sure can help you to fill up your trophy shelf in a big hurry. A new cylinder head and camshaft combined with a new 46 mm throttle body in the battery-less Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system produce a broader powerband with more low-end and midrange torque. But thrilling engine performance is just half of the CRF250R's winning formula – its chassis, in perfect balance with the new engine characteristics, gives you the extra confidence you need to drive deeper into corners and power harder through the whoops. For 2012, a new rear suspension linkage along with updated settings front and rear make this great-handling bike an even bigger threat on the track. Plus, we know you'll love the longer and wider footpegs and the premium Dunlop MX51 tires.
