Honda Motorcycles Southern Africa is proud to announce the arrival of the 2019 CRF250RX

Model updates: The new CRF250RX arrives in cross-country specification to further strengthen Honda's off-road line-up. Sharing the frame and engine hardware of the CRF250R moto-crosser, it is fully adapted to its role, with 8.5L fuel tank, forged aluminium sidestand and 18-inch rear wheel, plus revisions to power delivery and suspension settings. It also features 3-level HRC Launch Control as standard.

2. Model Overview

In common with the CRF450RX, the CRF250RX uses the rock-solid base of its moto-cross sibling and adds the essential ingredients for closed-course cross-country riding. Thus, it features a 8.5L fuel tank (like the CRF450RX), and also uses an 18-inch rear wheel plus revised suspension settings front and rear. Fuelling and ignition mapping have also been adjusted to deliver a softer power delivery compared to the moto-crosser, and a forged aluminium sidestand is fitted as standard.

The CRF250RX also benefits from the upgrades made to the CRF250R for 19YM: engine changes which boost low-rpm torque to gain time out of slower corners

(thanks to revisions from the throttle body all the way to the exhaust), a new front brake caliper, Renthal Fatbars and 3-mode HRC Launch Control to help any rider gain a good start, every time.

3. Key Features

  • Strong bottom-end torque, same top-end power as CRF250R
  • Benefits from 19YM CRF250R upgrades: revised throttle body, cylinder head, intake and exhaust for improved low-down performance
  • 3 level HRC Launch Control optimises start performance

New for YM19 (and as with the CRF250R) HRC's Launch Control system gives any rider the best option for a strong start and has 3 modes to choose from:

Level 3 - 8,250rpm, muddy conditions/beginner

Level 2 - 8,500rpm, dry conditions/basic

Level 1 - 9,500rpm, dry conditions/expert

Activating HRC Launch Control is easy - to turn on, pull in the clutch and push the Start button (on the right). The LED will blink once for Level 1 selection. Push the Start button again, for 0.5s or longer, and the LED will blink twice for Level 2. Repeat the process and the LED will blink 3 times, indication Level 3 has been chosen.

The Engine Mode Select Button (EMSB) alters the engine's characteristics and three maps are available to suit riding conditions or rider preference: Mode 1 (Standard), Mode 2 (Smooth) and Mode 3 (Aggressive). The LED also displays Mode selected.

3.2 Chassis

  • Renthal Fatbar has 4-way adjustable positioning
  • DID rims finished in black, 18-inch rear wheel
  • Shares CRF250R upgrades for 19YM: new front brake caliper and hose for improved stopping performance; redesigned sump guard and fork protectors

The CRF250RX uses the same tapered-spar aluminium frame as the CRF250R, which returns excellent feedback and rear wheel grip due to its low centre of gravity.

Unchanged in its transition to RX-spec. it does use anew twin-piston front brake caliper - common with the YM19 CRF450R - which has 30 and 27mm diameter pistons. This allows for a lighter body and, along with low expansion rate brake hose, improved brake feel and staying power. It works on a 260mm wave-pattern disc, matched by a rear 240mm wave-pattern disc and single-piston caliper.
