The 2010 Honda CRF250R

Honda's 2010 CRF250R

Honda’s 2010 CRF250R sets a higher benchmark than ever for impressive power and class-leading handling all rolled into one competition-ready package.

Honda didn’t have to look far for inspiration, adapting many of the same cutting-edge features found on the Pro Open class-leading CRF450R.

The CRF250R has won Transworld Motocross magazine’s “250 Four-Stroke MX Bike of the Year” not just once, but four straight years. And with all the incredible upgrades Honda has made to the all-new 2010 machine, it’s safe to say there award-winning streak will soon hit five.

Year after year, nothing seems to beat the CRF250R. Especially with Honda engineers working around the clock to give it the most advanced technology on the track.

Boasting an all-new, more powerful, more compact engine with Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) combined with an all-new Twin Spar Aluminum Frame featuring the Honda Progressive Steering Damper (HPSD), the 2010 CRF250R continues Honda’s long-standing position of class dominance.

This latest CRF250R sets a higher benchmark for impressive power and class-leading handling all rolled into one competition-ready package.

Its lighter weight, more potent liquid-cooled four-valve Unicam engine sports new forged slipper-piston material that permits a thinner crown. Low-friction surface treatment ensures high-rev potential, whilst the PGM-FI system ensures optimum performance and improved fuel consumption.

Overall, the changes to the engine incorporate an automatic variation of fuel flow and ignition timing depending on conditions, whilst gear ratios have also been revised to suit the overhauled engine. The bike also incorporates larger radiators as well as more durable pistons and valves.

An all-new single-pipe exhaust system design moves the muffler closer to the bike’s centre of mass, improving weight distribution and handling.

Its longer swingarm also improves stability as does larger diameter front forks and a lighter repositioned rear shock.

In addition to all-new bodywork borrowed from the CRF450R, Honda’s smaller motocrosser offers improved steering response and overall handling via a repositioned front wheel.

Other fuel injection systems are heavy compared with the CRF250R’s, which is light and compact—call it fuel injection done right.Fuel Injection also makes the CRF250R more efficient. You can run your moto with a smaller fuel tank, and that means less gas and less weight.

All-New Twin Spar Aluminum Frame

The ’10 CRF250R boasts an all-new, HPSD-equipped twin-spar aluminum frame with a forged aluminum steering head. Spar height was reduced and width was narrowed, while stronger downtubes enhance front end feel. Steering response and overall handling have been improved by reducing the triplecrown offset from 22mm to 20mm, thus also positioning the front wheel closer to the crankshaft.

New Single Exhaust System

The CRF250R’s trick, redesigned exhaust set-up incorporates a left-side cylinderhead exhaust port that helps increase header length, allowing the muffler to move closer to the bike’s centyer of mass.

The result? Improved weight distribution and quicker, more responsive handling.

Works-Style Front and Rear Brakes

Compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight new 240mm new front disc increases stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling. HRC works-type rear brake system adds a new 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.
