2020 Honda CRF250F


2020 Honda CRF250F Features

SINGLE-CYLINDER ENGINE

A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CRF250F. It’s light, simple, fuel-efficient, and features plenty of power and torque in all areas, along with smooth power delivery—ideal for a wide range of rider experience.

CLEAN-RUNNING ENGINE

Another benefit of fitting the CRF250F with fuel injection? Now it even meets California’s stringent CARB emissions standards for off-road motorcycles—good news for everyone.

FUEL INJECTION

Fuel injection means the CRF250F starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency. And say goodbye to clogged pilot jets when you put this bike away for storage.

PETAL-DISC FRONT BRAKE

Check out that front brake rotor—the petal-disc design is right off the competitive MX circuit. It’s light, runs cooler, and also helps reduce unsprung weight.

REAR DISC BRAKE

Drum brake in the rear? Not the CRF250F. We gave it a disc rear, just like the front. You get crisp, balanced, powerful braking at both ends.

STRONG, LIGHT TWIN-SPAR FRAME

The CRF250F gets a tubular-steel twin-spar frame that’s both light and tough.

18-INCH REAR WHEEL

A 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel give you a wide selection of tire choices for trail riding.

21-INCH FRONT WHEEL

A 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel give you a wide selection of tire choices for trail riding.

PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION

Thanks to our single-shock Pro-Link® rear suspension and Showa® damper, the CRF250F delivers excellent comfort, traction and handling, while also improving rider confidence. The rear suspension features 9.0 inches of travel.

SHOWA® FORK

The telescopic Showa® fork features large 41mm sliders. That makes it strong and helps add to the CRF250F’s excellent handling.

ELECTRIC STARTER

Turn the key, push the button, and let’s go riding! Electric starting is a big help on cold mornings, or if you need to restart out on the trail. Honda’s proven system makes riding just that much more fun.

COMFORTABLE SEAT POSITION

With a long, motocross-style seat, you can move forward and back, left and right with ease, helping you navigate changing terrain in comfort.

COUNTERBALANCED ENGINE

Because it features a counterbalancer, the CRF250F’s engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.

MX STYLING

Honda’s CRF450R and CRF250R are two of the hottest motocross bikes on the circuit. And they’re some of the coolest looking. We gave the CRF250F plenty of that racing DNA when it comes to style. This is one bike you’ll be proud to ride!
