Every off-roader wants the light weight, crisp handling, and razor-sharp performance of a racebike. But everyone also wants it to be easier to ride, more forgiving, and offer the reliability of a machine that’s not on the ragged edge. Oh yeah, and it can’t cost a million bucks, either. Well, you’re in luck, because Honda’s CRF250X offers the best of both worlds, with none of the drawbacks.
Based on our popular and podium-friendly MX racer, the CRF250X is powered by a four-stroke Unicam® engine modified for optimum off-road riding. We’ve also specially tuned the suspension for the trails, and given the rugged transmission wide-ratio gearing to handle whatever conditions you come across.
Then there’s the electric starter that puts you on the fast track with the push of a button. So take a look at the CRF250X. We think you’ll like what you see.
