FEEL YOUR PULSE RACE
Trail riding isn't just fun. It's a chance to test your skills, take chances and improve yourself. And you need a bike that won't hold you back. That's why we built the CRF250X. Based on our popular motocrosser, the 250X boasts relentless power off the line, with an engine and suspension system that's been tailored for the trail. As an added bonus, there's even an electric starter. What you end up with is a machine that's ready, willing and able to take on the toughest challenges out there.
COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT 249cc UNICAM® ENGINE
Honda’s Unicam design features a single overhead camshaft and four-valve head for a powerful yet compact powerplant. Since the single camshaft sits low and takes up less space, overall engine height is more compact. It also permits a narrow included valve angle for excellent flame propagation in the combustion chamber even at higher compression ratios.
Dual radiators feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared with conventional dual-radiator designs.
Electric start system ensures trouble-free starting in all conditions. Electric starter also drives the clutch side of the crankshaft to provide superior lubrication to starter gears while producing a narrow engine with a short, strong crank.
Placing the rider’s legs at the narrowest part of the frame improves comfort and handling.
Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, and the piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil and permits the use of a smaller oil pump.
The Gear-Driven Counterbalancer reduces vibration and drives the water pump. Eight clutch plates provide the surface area necessary to handle the engine's massive torque, while carefully matched clutch springs provide a light feel at the lever.
LED TAIL LIGHT
LED tail light integrated into rear fender. It’s light, compact and rigid.
Removable rear subframe allows easier access to the engine and shock and simplifies maintenance.
Aluminum Renthal handlebar (971 bend) is rubber-mounted to help reduce rider fatigue and improve comfort.
WORKS-STYLE FRONT BRAKE
Compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight 240mm front disc offers great stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling.
WORKS-STYLE REAR BRAKE
HRC works-type rear brake system with a 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.
18-INCH REAR WHEEL
18-inch rear wheel features same lightweight rear hub and HRC works-type lightweight-aluminum spoke nipples as used on CRF250R.
