2012 Honda CRF250X Review
Our perfect trail bike has arrived.
It’s the machine that delivers a just-right balance of light weight, exemplary handling and tractable four-stroke power: the CRF250X. This handy, agile and thoroughly capable off-road mount flat-out sets the standard for 250-class performance among the off-road crowd whether you’re into racing or just fun-time explorations through the woods.
Skilled off-roaders seek a bike that offers an ideal balance of power and size, performance and handling. That’s why we built the CRF250X.
Based on our popular and podium-friendly MX racer, the CRF250X is powered by a four-stroke Unicam® engine modified for optimum off-road riding. We’ve also specially-tuned the suspension for the trails, and given the rugged transmission wide-ratio gearing to handle whatever conditions you come across.
Then there’s the electric starter that puts you on the fast track with the push of a button, and hot new graphics to boot.
So take a look at the CRF250X. We think you’ll like what you see.
