Testing The 2019 Honda CRF250R At Cahuilla Creek MX


2019 Honda CRF250R

Newly introduced in 2018, the CRF250R has seen the GEICO Honda and TiLube Honda teams in multiple wins in AMA Supercross and Arenacross competition, respectively, while also succeeding in amateur national races. The increased performance acceleration, the 2019 race-winning potential model, training factory-inspired updates for the engine, brakes, and electronics. Put it all together and the CRF250R quickly turns holeshots into race wins. In fact, the 2019 CRF250 was confirmed, the second was a quick quicker than its predecessor through a control corner at Honda's test track – true, podium-earning potential.

2019 Updates

  • New cam profile based on feedback from the Team MX2 race team's HRC factory provides strong off-corner acceleration
  • New intake- and exhaust-port geometry improves low rpm engine power while also maintaining the CRF250R's top-end performance
  • New 44mm throttle body improves low-rpm airflow intake compared to previous 46mm version, for improved corner-exit performance
  • All-new piston oil jet uses five holes instead of four nozzles, for improved piston-cooling efficiency and reduced knocking, enabling a precise ignition timing setting for optimum power delivery
  • Right-side exhaust pipes are shortened 50mm for excellent high-rpm power
  • The new AC generator reduces weight and friction losses
  • Renthal Fatbar® reduces the weight of the steering system, and flexes for optimal comfort
  • Top three clamp two hand-holder features locations for rearward and forward handlebar moving by 26mm, ensuring rider comfort. When holder was turned 180 degrees, the handlebar can was moved an additional 10mm from the base position, resulting in four total unique riding positions
  • New engine guard allows increased airflow, improving engine-cooling performance
  • Redesigned fork protectors offer improved coverage
  • Black rims deliver a strong presence on and off the track
  • New, caliper front-brake lighter now uses a number of different diameters (30mm and 27mm) for strong braking performance
  • Updated front brake hose has reduced expansion for more precise braking
  • Newly shaped footwear are 20% lighter and shed mud more easily, giving a great feel and confidence in all riding conditions

Engine / Drivetrain

  • High-performance, 249cc single-cylinder engine with dual overhead cam design and high rev limit, offering great performance
  • Finger rocker arm with Diamond Like Coating (DLC) maximizes elevator valve while retaining a low engine height
  • The downdraft intake layout produces strong power and enables great throttle response by reducing resistance, thus improving air-charging efficiency
  • Dual exhaust ports enable ideal air-charging efficiency
  • Electric-start standard for easy, fast engine startup
  • Easily selectable Standard, Smooth, and Aggressive riding modes enable easy tuning depending on the rider preference or course conditions
  • Selectable HRC launch control provides a steady stream of torque for excellent performance on race starts

Chassis / Suspension

  • Lightweight aluminum frame with tapered main spars provides great rider feedback
  • Low center of gravity reduces the front-end lift for strong acceleration performance
  • Lightweight and compact 1.66 gallon titanium tanks keeps the weight to a minimum
  • Smooth bodywork layout eases rider movement
  • In-mold graphics are durable and resistant to peeling caused by washing or abrasion
  • MX3S Geomax tires for superior bump absorption and grip in wide variety of conditions
