Honda CRF250R 2019
Honda CRF250R 2019
The CRF250R received a major overhaul in 2018 including a brand new DOHC engine, revised geometry including a lower centre of gravity for improved stability and traction as well as a re-designed dual exhaust and intake system.
For 2019, the CRF250R has received further updates, with increased low-to-midrange engine performance for improved corner exiting. Inspired by the factory version, the Double Overhead Cam engine features updated cam profiles and intake- and exhaust-port profiles, a 50mm shorter right exhaust pipe, and a 2mm smaller throttle body.
Riders can select from three engine modes for ideal performance depending on conditions, while HRC launch control has been adopted for improved race-start performance. A Renthal Fatbar handlebar sits in a four-position-adjustable top clamp, while the braking system has been updated with a lighter, CRF450R-inspired caliper with larger piston for optimum braking performance. Black rims are standard.
ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN
Easily selectable Standard, Smooth, and Aggressive riding modes enable easy tuning depending on rider preference or course conditions. Selectable HRC launch control provides a steady stream of torque for excellent performance on race starts. New cam profile based on feedback from the Team HRC factory MX2 race team 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 intake airflow compared to previous 46mm version, for improved corner-exit performance. All-new piston oil jet uses five nozzle holes instead of four, for improved piston-cooling efficiency and reduced knocking, enabling a precise ignition-timing setting for optimum power delivery. Right-side exhaust pipe shortened 50mm for excellent high-rpm power. All-new AC generator reduces weight and friction losses.
