2021 Honda® CRF250R Radically redesigned for the absolute holeshot Features may include: ENGINEERING HRC Launch Control We’re talking about a special ECU program here: push the button to select the mode, hold the throttle open, release the clutch, and the CRF250R will do the rest, launching you into the first turn with a big advantage. It turns your bike into a holeshot-seeking machine! Electric Start The CRF250R is equipped with an effortless electric starter. Convenient and lightweight, it’s a huge deal if you need to restart a stalled bike in the heat of battle. New Gear-Position Engine Mapping Talk about smart: The CRF250R now features an ECU with special engine mapping for each gear. You can’t give an inch in this class, so having your engine deliver optimal power for each gear choice is one of the features that separates CRF250R riders from the rest. Engine Mode Select Button This simple handlebar-mounted button lets you dial in engine power delivery character with a push of your thumb. Choose between Standard, Smooth and Aggressive, depending on track conditions. PERFORMANCE Double-Spray Injector Settings The CRF250R’s fuel-injection system sprays twice per intake cycle. That helps increase fuel atomization without adding the weight or complexity of a second injector. The better fuel atomization means more power in the midrange and on over rev—you’ll feel it the first time you race. New 2020 Piston Coordinated to work with the new cam profile and combustion-chamber shape, it’s the final piece to the CRF250R’s engine performance package. The bridged-box design features a reinforcing structure between the skirts and the wrist-pin bosses that helps enable the CRF250R’s high redline New 2020 Cam Profiles With input directly from our HRC factory team, we’ve changed the intake cam profiles on our 2020 model to work with the new valves. You should feel better bottom end torque and power, while still retaining the CRF250R’s screaming peak. COMFORT & HANDLING Showa Spring Fork The 49 mm Showa fork features a conventional spring design that helps increase the CRF250R’s front-suspension precision, handling and feel. The 39 mm piston diameter and 25 mm rod diameter guarantee a plush feel and supple action. Low Rear Shock Mount With its low rear shock mount on the frame, the CRF250R benefits from both a lower center of gravity (cg) as well as chassis stability.
