Increased cam lift, new titanium exhaust valves, new valve springs, and updates to cylinder-head porting, piston shape and connecting-rod shape, add up to an engine that’s more powerful than ever.
The CRF250R’s Engine Mode Select (EMS) system lets you modify fuel-injection and ignition mapping with the simple push of a handlebar-mounted button – perfect for dialing in the best power curve for better starts, better drive out of corners, better traction, or simply to better suit your riding style. Modes two and three can even be fine-tuned using the optional HRC setting tool. Mode selection is easily accomplished without changing the rider's hand position or shutting down the engine (as long as the engine is idling).
The air-intake tube has been revised and the mufflers feature larger outlet diameters for improved breathing and flow, which has increased top-end power.
Twin-spar aluminum chassis offers the benefit of a low centre of gravity with excellent feel and feedback. Designed to work in concert with the Showa air fork and the Honda Progressive Steering Damper, the chassis combines excellent stability with right-now turning precision.
The Honda Progressive Steering Damper allows more-aggressive chassis geometry for quicker steering, while also assisting straight-line handling. Damping action smoothly progresses as handlebar deflection increases, which produces very natural steering characteristics and feel.
Pro-link rear Showa suspension offers full damping adjustability and over 12 inches of smooth, well-controlled travel.
A full 260 mm in diameter, the wave-style front brake rotor offers excellent stopping power plus superior lever feel.

Effortless directional changes on the fly Unique 4-valve Unicam cylinder head has very compact dimensions, allowing it to be ideally placed for excellent mass centralization. This helps make it even easier for a rider to change direction, on the ground or in the air.
The Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system has new mapping to take full advantage of the upgraded engine components.
Larger radiators handle the output from the more powerful engine, and further enhance the CRF250R’s renowned reliability.
The inverted Showa air fork designed specifically for the CRF250R includes a number of clever innovations. By separating air-spring and damping functions between left and right fork legs respectively, overall weight balance from left to right is improved when the weight of the brake is included. The left fork with its air spring not only offers reduced weight, but its three-chambered design allows separate adjustment of ride height and "spring" rate. Together these innovations result in reduced weight, improved balance, superior suspension action and simplified adjustability.
Dunlop MX52 tires offer excellent traction in a wide variety of conditions.
The design of the fuel hose connector simplifies maintenance.
Optional HRC setting kit includes an easy-to-use programming system with precise data for setting up the machine to meet all race situations. Ignition timing and fuel mapping settings can be uploaded by connecting the motorcycle to a computer and following simple step-by-step instructions. The system radically simplifies the setup process and makes tuning accessible to a wide spectrum of riders. Connection is simple with only one connector and no need to remove the fuel tank.
