Honda Motorcycles Australia press release:
An all-new 250cc Trail machine joins Honda’s off road range this month, with the release of the CRF250F, available for an MLP of $6,499.
The CRF250F brings an all-new 250cc four-valve SOHC long-stroke; air-cooled engine with Keihin electronically controlled fuel injection for a linear power delivery through a 5-speed gearbox.
The mass-centralisation philosophy of the next generation CRF MX line up has been carried over to the new CRF250F, with the muffler positioned closer to the centre of mass. The result is a lighter feel, intuitive responsiveness, and confidence-inspiring handling, especially on corner entrances, making it a great platform for learning while also providing capability that many riders will never outgrow.
The Pro-Link® rear suspension system puts the smooth power to the ground and the Showa 41mm fork works with the new frame’s steering geometry provide maximum front-wheel traction.
Braking is handled with new petal-style rotors for improved modulation, heat transfer and mud clearing and the CRF race-inspired aggressive, compact bodywork allows improved rider/machine interface.
The 6L steel fuel tank contains an internal fuel pump with a reserve level sensor; a bar-mounted “low fuel” indicator light means no more reaching down to switch the tank’s petcock to reserve.
More power, intuitive handling, race-bike technology and styling, and Honda’s legendary reliability ensure that this starter bike will also be a keeper bike.
