2013 Honda CRF250X Review
2013 Honda CRF250X
Track-proven. Trail ready…
Using technology from our National-Championship-winning MX machines, the CRF250X is powered by a four-stroke Unicam® engine specially modified for off-road riding. We’ve also tuned the suspension for the trails, and given the rugged transmission wide-ratio gearing to handle conditions in both real-world riding and closed-course racing.
Honda’s CRF250X stands tall as the machine that delivers a just-right balance of light weight, exemplary handling and tractable four-stroke power. Thanks to its handy size and weight and delightfully agile handling, this thoroughly capable off-road mount flat-out sets the standard for 250-class performance among off-road mounts. Whether you’re into off-road competition or you just enjoy leisurely explorations through the woods, the CRF250X is a great companion to have along for the ride.
Best of all, its electric starter puts you on the fast track with the push of a button, and is a godsend on rocky trails or gnarly uphills.
The closer you look at a CRF250X, the more you’re going to like it. And that’ll go double when you actually ride it.
With its Unicam® cylinder head, this liquid-cooled four-stroke puts out loads of power over a wide rpm band for maximum trail performance.
Our push-button electric starter offers all-around convenience, whether you’re starting out on your ride or quickly restarting in tough conditions.

2013 Honda CRF250X Features and Benefits
Compact, Lightweight 249cc Unicam® Engine
Aluminum Renthal handlebar (971 bend) is rubber-mounted to help reduce rider fatigue and improve comfort.
Works-Style Front Brakes
Compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight new 240mm new front disc increase stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling. HRC works-type rear brake system adds a new 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.
Electric start system ensures trouble-free starting in all conditions. Electric starter also drives the clutch side of the crankshaft to provide superior lubrication to starter gears while producing a narrow engine with a short, strong crank.
Dual radiators feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared with conventional dual-radiator designs. Coolant recovery tank is located in front of the engine between the frame downtubes for improved center of gravity. Coolant tank is protected by a plastic skidplate.
Gear-Driven Counterbalancer reduces vibration and drives the water pump. Eight clutch plates provide the surface area necessary to handle the engine’s massive torque, while carefully matched clutch springs provide a light feel at the lever.
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.
Placing the rider’s legs at the narrowest part of the frame improves comfort and handling.
Removable rear subframe allows easier access to the engine and shock and simplifies maintenance.
Works-Style Rear Brakes
ompact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight new 240mm new front disc increase stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling. HRC works-type rear brake system adds a new 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.
LED taillight integrated into rear fender. It’s light, compact, and bulletproof.
18-Inch Rear Wheel
18-inch rear wheel features same lightweight rear hub and HRC works-type lightweight-aluminum spoke nipples as used on CRF250R.
