Horsepower is horsepower, right? Anybody who’s ever raced knows it’s a lot more complicated. Where your bike makes its power is as important as how much power it puts out. And that’s where our 2022 Honda CRF250R is a real game-changer. Because we’ve made some big improvements to this bike’s engine, giving it way more power and torque in the midrange. And that means it’s easier to ride fast because the midrange is key in critical track sections like whoops, managing jumps, or powering through deep loam and berms. And to handle all that extra torque, we’ve also given it a new nine-plate clutch. Finally, there’s the new single-pipe exhaust, designed to make moving on the bike easier, and a big contributor to the bike’s lower overall weight. Ready to ride and ready to win.
- Nine-plate clutch assembly - Improves durability and hookup. That means less slip at peak horsepower, better torque transmission and improved engagement feel.
- HRC launch control - 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.
- More midrange torque and power - The key to riding a 250 fast is to keep it in the powerband. The 2022 CRF250R updates boost the critical midrange torque and power significantly, giving you the advantage you need.
- Revised frame rigidity - The revised chassis is more responsive with improved lateral rigidity. The result is a bike that gets into, around, and out of corners faster.
