2023 Honda CRF250F: CHAMPION-INSPIRED. FAMILY-APPROVED.

Introducing the 2023 Honda CRF250F…

The largest model in Honda’s CRF Trail family, the CRF250F pairs versatility and capability in a fun, trail-ready package—a perfect choice for those exploring the trail for the first time, as well as experienced riders who opt for more technical, challenging terrain. Equipped with clean-running Keihin electronically controlled fuel injection, the CRF250F delivers smooth power across a wide powerband, ensuring maximum traction on varied terrain. The confidence-inspiring Showa suspension smooths out rough sections of trail with a stable, compliant ride. With design and graphic influence from the industry-leading CRF Performance line, the CRF250F has sharp styling. As with Honda’s entire CRF Trail line, this model is year-round off-road-legal in all 50 states, giving owners thousands of miles of trail waiting to be explored.

There’s always just been something right about a 250-class off-road bike. They make enough power to ride just about anywhere you want to go, but they’re still light, nimble, and rider friendly. Especially if you’re talking about our Honda CRF250F. It’s not a full-on motocross machine; it’s a great trail bike that’s going to fit a wide range of casual riders. Its fuel-injected engine offers reliable power across a wide powerband, even in cold weather and higher altitudes. The sturdy steel frame shrugs off the bumps and dings that are a part of off-road riding. A full-sized 21-inch front wheel teams up with a super-reliable air-cooled Honda engine, electric starting, front and rear disc brakes and a five-speed transmission, a collection of features that make it one of the best do-it-all dirt bikes on the planet.

For Every Trail. For Everyone.
There’s no shortage of digital distractions these days. Between gaming and social media, there are plenty of reasons to plug in, and unplug from true interaction. So before your family gets lost in the virtual world, show them the real world on Honda’s family of rugged, reliable CRF/Fs and CRF/Xs. Designed for riders at every level, these CRFs are ideal for exploring the back-country, the dunes and everything in between.

 

 

2023 Honda CRF250F Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

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? 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.

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

21-INCH FRONT/18-INCH REAR WHEELS
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 9.1-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. A proven Honda system that 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 challenging 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 exceptional smoothness.

STYLE
MX STYLING
Honda 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!

 

Honda Announces 2023 CRF Trail Family

  • The trail-bike line continues to deliver industry-leading performance and reliability
  • CRF50F and CRF110F available in Red and White color ways for 2023

ALPHARETTA, Georgia (August 5, 2022) – American Honda confirmed the return of its CRF Trail family, the most popular line of trail motorcycles in the industry. From the full-size CRF250F, to the pint-size CRF50F, the four-model lineup is renowned for its on-trail performance, reliability and ease of maintenance.

The CRF Trail range of motorcycles suits riders of all sizes and abilities. The easy-to-ride CRF50F is the smallest in the lineup, built for the next generation of riders, with an automatic clutch, low seat height and reliable 49cc four-stroke engine. Thanks in part to its approachable nature, clean-running fuel injection system and push-button electric start, the CRF110F is the industry’s top-selling dirt bike. In addition to the iconic Honda red, the CRF50F and CRF110F are also available in new colors designed to appeal to a wider variety of young riders. Praised for its reliable performance—and available in two sizes—the CRF125F is the midpoint of the lineup, ideal for new and young riders thanks to its smooth, linear power. Also returning for 2023, the capable and versatile CRF250F inspires confidence on the trail, making it a great option for riders of all skill levels.
