The CRF250R sets the standards in the Lites class. A perfect balance between performance, responsiveness and rider- friendly ergonomics, we've made it even better this year. The new rear shock linkage, new suspension settings, adjusted rear suspension travel and more all help sharpen the CRF250R's steering precision and increase traction on downhills and under hard braking. The engine upgrades (cylinder head, cam timing, throttle body) give you more powerand, more important, power you can really use. Throw in wider footpegs and new premium Dunlop MX51 tires, and from the time the first start gate drops you'll know you're on the best Lites-class MX bike you've ever ridden.
