Honda CRF 250 R 2015


If the CRF 250 R is already regularly illustrated on all cross-country circuits on the planet, the 2015 version takes a decisive step in several areas: on the engine side, it introduces a configurable mapping system on the handlebars in three modes; On the chassis side, its new inverted oleopneumatic fork and its larger front brake disc further improve its behavior. Major evolutions which make it possible to make the most of the advantages of the machine and the talents of the pilot.

Double aluminum beam frame: a safe bet

Never change a winning team ! The 2015 CRF 250 R therefore remains faithful to the 6th generation aluminum frame which has largely proven its worth in MX and SX. But the HRC chassis specialists have taken the requirements up a notch: more traction, improved grip, stability and braking at high speed, and a feeling of lightness when cornering. More than ever, this frame stands out as a benchmark in the category.

New oleopneumatic fork: divide and conquer

One of the great novelties of the 2015 vintage, the Showa SFF-AIR-TAC (Separate Front Function AIR with triple pneumatic chamber) fork from ø 49 mm is specially designed to meet the demands of competition. Clever, it dissociates the functions of compression and relaxation between the two arms. Benefits: optimized reactions on bumps and better front axle stability under braking, to which is added a weight reduction of 1.3 kg compared to the previous model.
In terms of the rear suspension, the new material of the Showa shock absorber spring makes it possible to gain in strength but also in lightness.

Configurable engine behavior: a strategic weapon

It was already very powerful and flexible: the liquid-cooled 249 cm3 Unicam 4-valve single cylinder is even more efficient thanks to the adoption of Honda EMSB (Engine Mode Select Button) mapping management..

With a simple push on the control on the handlebars, you adapt in the blink of an eye the “behavior” of the engine to the driving conditions and to the evolution of the weather. No more tedious adjustments.

– Mode 1 uses standard ignition and injection curves to provide balanced horsepower and torque characteristics.
– Mode 2 is suitable for low grip conditions (mud for example) and favors throttle control to make the most of the available traction..
– Mode 3 delivers more explosive power and makes it easier to get out of soft, deep sand.

You can even fine-tune Modes 2 and 3 using the tuning system developed by the HRC.

More powerful braking

With 260 mm in diameter against 240 on the previous model, the new “petal” disc with double piston caliper guarantees even more efficient braking at the front. It is relayed to the rear by a 240 mm disc clamped by a single piston caliper.

Dressing: priority to the pilot’s ease

The 2015 CRF 250 R uses the stylistic principles of cross-country Honda: the trim is tailored around the rider to provide optimal ergonomics. Thus, the radiator scoops, the side covers, the ultralight saddle and the tank form a smooth and homogeneous whole which gives you great freedom and great fluidity of movement, to take full advantage of the liveliness and maneuverability of your machine..
