2015 Honda CRF250 X

Competitive edge

Starting at $8,999 *

  • Payment Calculator
When off-road competition shifts away from the motocross track to enduro, hare scrambles and cross country courses, motorcycle priorities also shift. The CRF250X is well suited to the Canadian wilderness thanks to its superior manoeuvrability and agility. Light, agile, compliant and backed by Honda durability and reliability, the CRF250X is ready to race.
CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Standard

  • 18-inch rear wheel features the same lightweight rear hub and HRC works-type lightweight aluminum spoke nipples as used on the CRF250R.
  • Rear shock damper piston diameter is 50 mm for consistent performance under demanding riding conditions.
  • Front wheel features large-diameter front axle and wide wheel-bearing span for excellent rigidity.
  • Rear-axle diameter of 25 mm and large-diameter bearings provide optimum rigidity to withstand torturous off-road conditions.
  • Lightweight 47 mm inverted Showa twin-chamber cartridge fork with aluminum dampers is derived from the CRF250R and features settings unique to the CRF250X. The fork offers 315 mm (12.4 inches) of travel, and 16-position rebound and 16-position compression damping adjustability. The inner surface of the front fork outer-tubes receives the same honing treatment as works bikes for low-friction operation.
  • HRC works-type rear brake system integrates the rear master cylinder and fluid reservoir, eliminating the need for a remote master cylinder reservoir and hose assembly.
  • Semi-double-cradle twin-spar aluminum frame features a single large-diameter tapered downtube. Two rugged box-section rails attach to the base of the downtube and support the engine. A forged aluminum steering head provides a compact and extremely durable mount for the frame spars and engine downtube. In addition, tall swingarm pivot plates and narrow frame spars create a narrow overall frame cross-section for superb rider comfort and manoeuvrability.
  • Swingarm features a dual-axis, double-taper design with a large cast-aluminum cross-member.
  • Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension system features a fully adjustable Showa rear damper and 313 mm (12.3 inches) of wheel travel, separate low-speed (13 positions) and high-speed (3.5 turns) compression damping adjusters, and 17-position rebound damping adjustment.
  • Compact dual-piston front brake caliper, anodized aluminum brake pistons and lightweight front brake disc minimize unsprung weight for improved turning and handling.
  • 240 mm wave-style front and rear brake discs reduce unsprung weight.
Engine/Drivetrain

Standard

  • Carburetor features a throttle position sensor (TPS) and an accelerator pump that help maintain linear throttle response throughout the rpm range.
  • Electric starter drives the clutch side of the crankshaft to provide superior lubrication to starter gears, and produce a narrow engine with a short, strong crankshaft.
  • Lightweight, compact, internal auto decompressor system provides superb cold-starting and hot-starting operation.
  • Unicam valve train features a carburized single camshaft that directly actuates two 31 mm titanium intake valves. The camshaft exhaust lobe actuates two 26 mm steel exhaust valves via a forked, low-friction, roller rocker-arm.
  • Lightweight titanium intake valves permit use of smaller valve springs, reducing overall engine height.
  • Crankshaft is made of high-strength, low-carbon steel with carburized main journals for maximum durability at sustained high-rpm operation.
  • Alternator cover, clutch cover and cylinder-head cover are made of magnesium to reduce engine weight.
  • Double-carburized connecting rod utilizes a big-end needle bearing for maximum high-rpm performance and durability.
  • 37 mm Keihin FCR-type carburetor features four rollers on the flat slide, resulting in very light throttle effort, smooth operation, crisp throttle response and excellent rideability.
  • Vertically split crankcases feature a built-in oil pump, reducing weight compared to a conventional design.
  • Dual radiators feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared to conventional dual-radiator design, and a coolant recovery tank.
  • T-ring-sealed chain is approximately 1.6 mm narrower and stronger compared to conventional chains.
  • Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil, and permits the use of a smaller oil pump.
  • Unicam valve train provides the light weight of a compact single-cam design and the optimum combustion chamber shape for maximum power at all engine rpm.
  • Forged 12.9:1-compression slipper piston is lighter than a conventional design, revving quickly while maintaining excellent cylinder sealing and high-rpm power.
  • Nikasil cylinder lining is lightweight and provides cooler and quieter operation for extended engine life.
  • Exhaust system uses a lightweight stainless steel exhaust header and a lighter muffler equipped with a spark arrester.
  • Powerful four-stroke 249 cc liquid-cooled four-valve Unicam engine is designed to produce power across a wide rpm band for easy-to-control operation.
  • Durable five-speed wide-ratio transmission.
  • Gear-driven balancer reduces vibration and drives the water pump.
  • Eight clutch plates provide the surface area necessary to handle the engine's torque, while carefully matched clutch springs provide a light feel at the lever.

  • Quick-adjust clutch.
  • One-piece cover protects throttle cable by keeping out dirt and water.
  • Chain guide material offers improved wear resistance, and service life is five times greater than conventional materials.
  • Easy-access air filter.
  • Rider ergonomics are optimized by adapting the handlebar, seat and footpeg height to place the rider's legs at the narrowest cross-section of the frame for improved comfort and handling feel.
