2022 Honda CRF250F: CHAMPION-INSPIRED. FAMILY-APPROVED.

Introducing the 2022 Honda CRF250F…

Few motorcycles can lay claim to being as versatile as the fun but capable CRF250F—a great choice for appropriately sized riders getting their feet wet off-road, but also very well suited for tackling challenging terrain at the hands of more experienced riders. Featuring Keihin electronically controlled fuel injection, the clean-running, low-maintenance CRF250F is year-round off-road legal in all 50 states. The long-stroke, air-cooled SOHC engine puts out strong-but-manageable acceleration, while the confidence-inspiring Showa suspension delivers a compliant ride in varied terrain. Add it up, and it’s no wonder that the flagship of Honda’s CRF Trail line is the industry’s top-selling full-size dirt bike; after all, it’s like owning multiple dirt bikes for the price of one!

There’s no surprise that recent popularity for the CRF250F has been so high; it’s one of the best ways to get out and enjoy nature. The fuel-injected engine offers reliable power across a wide powerband, even in cold weather and higher altitudes, within a sturdy twin-spar frame that’s lightweight and perfectly sized for most riders. With new graphics inspired by our podium-topping motocrossers, the 250F looks as good as it rides. It’s ready with the performance to lead the pack, and the group ride.

Honda Offers Robust Lineup of Green Sticker-Compliant Dirt Bikes CRF450X, CRF-F trail family are off-road legal in California for 2022

Honda continues to offer a number of dirt bike models that meet the California Air Resources Board’s new emissions standards for 2022 model-year and later off-highway vehicles. CARB’s updated rules eliminate new Red Sticker vehicle sales for model year 2022 and onward. Model-year 2022 and later off-highway vehicles that are not Green Sticker compliant will not be allowed to operate in California SVRAs.

Announced last March, the 2022 CRF450X continues to be eligible for a Green Sticker and may be legally ridden year-round at SVRAs. Suitable for trail riding, this popular model performs at such a high level that it is also capable in competition, having amassed 14 victories in the Baja 1000, including the last six editions.

In addition, the entire CRF Trail family—the CRF50F, CRF110F, CRF125F and CRF250F—remains Green Sticker compliant. The road-legal CRF450RL may also be legally used in California SVRAs.

“With CARB’s changing regulations, we’ve heard from a number of customers who are concerned about being able to ride their dirt bikes in California public riding areas, but many Honda models are already Green Sticker compliant,” said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Sports & Experiential at American Honda. “We’ve moved our off-road line in this direction over the past several years, enabling us to offer one of the powersports industry’s more substantial lineups of Green Sticker-compliant models. Equipping off-highway vehicles with the necessary clean-running technology isn’t always easy, but doing so is an important way of protecting the environment and keeping public riding areas beautiful.”

Honda’s lineup of Green Sticker-compliant powersports products isn’t limited to two-wheel models, as many Honda ATVs and side-by-sides can also be used year-round in California’s public off-road areas.

 

 

2022 Honda CRF250F Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINEERING
SINGLE-CYLINDER ENGINE
A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CRF250F. It’s light, simple, fuel-efficient, and features plenty of power and torque in all areas, along with smooth power delivery—ideal for a wide range of rider experience.

CLEAN-RUNNING ENGINE
Another benefit of fitting the CRF250F with fuel injection? Now it even meets California’s stringent CARB emissions standards for off-road motorcycles—good news for everyone.

FUEL INJECTION
Fuel injection means the CRF250F starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency. And say goodbye to clogged pilot jets when you put this bike away for storage.

PETAL-DISC FRONT BRAKE
Check out that front brake rotor—the petal-disc design is right off the competitive MX circuit. It’s light, runs cooler, and also helps reduce unsprung weight.

REAR DISC BRAKE
Drum brake in the rear? Not the CRF250F. We gave it a disc rear, just like the front. You get crisp, balanced, powerful braking at both ends.

HANDLING
STRONG, LIGHT TWIN-SPAR FRAME
The CRF250F gets a tubular-steel twin-spar frame that’s both light and tough.

18-INCH REAR WHEEL
A 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel give you a wide selection of tire choices for trail riding.

21-INCH FRONT WHEEL
A 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel give you a wide selection of tire choices for trail riding.

PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION
Thanks to our single-shock Pro-Link® rear suspension and Showa® damper, the CRF250F delivers excellent comfort, traction and handling, while also improving rider confidence. The rear suspension features 9.0 inches of travel.

SHOWA® FORK
The telescopic Showa® fork features large 41mm sliders. That makes it strong and helps add to the CRF250F’s excellent handling.

CONVENIENCE
ELECTRIC STARTER
Turn the key, push the button, and let’s go riding! Electric starting is a big help on cold mornings, or if you need to restart out on the trail. Honda’s proven system makes riding just that much more fun.

COMFORT
COMFORTABLE SEAT POSITION
With a long, motocross-style seat, you can move forward and back, left and right with ease, helping you navigate changing terrain in comfort.

COUNTERBALANCED ENGINE
Because it features a counterbalancer, the CRF250F’s engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.

STYLE
MX STYLING
Honda’s CRF450R and CRF250R are two of the hottest motocross bikes on the circuit. And they’re some of the coolest looking. We gave the CRF250F plenty of that racing DNA when it comes to style. This is one bike you’ll be proud to ride!
