The key foundations of Honda’s multi-championship winning off-road family, the CRF450R, CRF450RX, CRF250R and CRF250RX, receive major updates for 25 year model aimed at cutting lap times for riders at all levels of competition.

  • Significant upgrades for the CRF450R, CRF450RX, CRF250R and CRF450RX aimed at improving cornering stability and control
  • 70% new aluminium frame with new top and bottom yokes
  • All-new 49mm Showa front suspension generates ultra-smooth fork stroke; paired with updated rear shock
  • Engine updates improve power output beyond peak rpm and generate more torque and acceleration especially at mid to high rpm
  • All new lightweight shrouds and sidecovers
  • CRF250R and CRF250RX inherit Honda Selectable Torque Control from CRF450R
  • CRF250RWE and CRF450RWE to be available in Europe for the first time
  • All 25YM CRF off-roaders now available with striking new graphics

For 25YM the smaller CRF family members - the CRF150R, CRF125F, CRF110F and CRF50F follow the lead of their bigger siblings and feature all new CRF family graphics.

For the first time, Honda’s European CRF line-up will be bolstered with the introduction of the CRF250RWE and CRF450RWE.

These ‘Works Editions’, built alongside their 25YM siblings at Kumamoto in Japan, both feature upgrades and unique settings that enhance the performance and appeal.

The CRF250RWE also comes equipped with a new hydraulic clutch and hydraulic clutch system with a revised clutch slave cylinder which reduces clutch lever pulling force by 16% when compared to a cable operated system. It also reduces the amount of variation in clutch free play and feel as the clutch temperature increases.

The CRF450RWE is equipped with a bespoke Hinson clutch basket with new clutch dampers and cover that enhances wear resistance as well as performance.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
