2020 CRF 250R NEW - 5th Oct 2019

2020 CRF 250R NEW

Introduction
The CRF250R gets a host of important updates for 2020, including engine enhancements aimed at bettering low-to-midrange power, and chassis revisions that improve handling. To increase torque and improve driveability, the cam profile is new, the combustion chamber is reshaped, and the exhaust resonator has been removed. At the same time, manoeuvrability has been improved through a lighter frame and swingarm with optimised flex characteristics, along with a lower battery position and internal front-and-rear suspension updates.

Upgrades
* New cam profile delays opening of exhaust valves and has reduced valve overlap, resulting in improved torque and power in the 6,000-10,000 rpm range.
* Optimised combustion-chamber shape.
*Ignition timing is optimised at 8,000 rpm for improved torque and power.
*Gear-position sensor added to allow dedicated ignition maps for each gear.
* Header-pipe resonator is removed for improved power character when shifting from second to third gear. * Muffler is revised for improved low-to-midrange torque.
* New air-filter element is 10% larger for increased airflow.
* Enlarged left-side radiator for efficient cooling with higher engine-power output.
* Second gear has revised (higher) ratio for improved drive, while second and third gears have a new WPC
surface treatment for improved durability and reduced friction.
* Clutch capacity is increased by 18%, and clutch spring has a higher rate.
* New lighter aluminium perimeter frame and aluminium swingarm are designed to achieve increased yaw-angle stiffness while retaining lateral and torsional stiffness, resulting in improved stability.
* Newly shaped footpegs are 20% lighter and shed mud more easily, giving the rider great feel and confidence in all riding conditions.
* Thanks in part to revised internal suspension settings (fork has increased lowspeed damping, while shock has increased low-speed compression and reduced high-speed compression), handling has been improved in the following areas: stability, tracking, turning and traction.
* Battery repositioned 28mm lower to drop centre of gravity for better handling.
* Rear brake has a shorter hose and longer, lighter pedal, as well as a new pad material with improved power and better durability in muddy conditions. Lowerrear brake guard removed for reduced unsprung weight and improved cooling.

Chassis
* Low centre of gravity reduces front-end lift for strong acceleration performance.
* Lightweight and compact 6.3 Litre titanium tank keeps weight to a minimum.
* Lightweight front-brake caliper uses pistons of different diameters (30mm and 27mm) for strong braking performance.
* Front brake hose resists expansion for precise braking.
* Renthal® Fatbar® reduces weight of the steering system, and flexes for optimal comfort.
* Top triple clamp features two handlebar-holder locations for moving the handlebar rearward and forward by 26mm, ensuring rider comfort. When holder is turned 180 degrees, the handlebar can be moved an additional 10mm from the base position, resulting in four total unique riding positions.
* Black rims deliver a strong presence on and off the track.
* Smooth bodywork layout eases rider movement.
* In-mold graphics are durable and resistant to peeling caused by washing or abrasion.
* Geomax MX3S tires, exclusively available through Honda, for superior bump absorption and grip in wide variety of conditions.

Engine
* High-performance, DOHC, 249cc single-cylinder engine with dual-overhead-cam design and high rev limit, offering great performance.
* Finger rocker arms with Diamond Like Coating (DLC) maximise valve lift while retaining a low engine height. * Downdraft intake layout produces strong power and enables great throttle response by reducing resistance, thereby improving air-charging efficiency.
* 44mm throttle body provides ideal low-rpm intake airflow for strong corner-exit performance.
* Piston oil jet uses five nozzle holes for efficient piston-cooling and minimised knocking, enabling a precise ignition-timing setting for optimum power delivery.
* Electric-start standard for easy, fast engine startup.
* Easily selectable Standard, Smooth, and Aggressive riding modes enable simple tuning depending on rider preference or course conditions.
* Selectable HRC launch control provides a steady stream of torque for excellent performance on race starts.

 

In store Now! NEW CRF 250F - 21st May 2019

In store Now!  NEW CRF 250F Introduction
Increased displacement, more power and better stability enhance the confidence-inspiring nature of the all-new flagship of the CRF Recreational Line and bring performance gains that also make this a great platform for advanced riders. The CRF250F brings an all-new 250cc four-valve engine with Keihin electronic fuel injection for increased power. Its tubular steel frame brings improved handling—a benefit that will be appreciated by all riders. More torque and a linear power delivery mean new riders can learn at lower, less intimidating rpm, and advanced off-roaders can utilize the strong torque in technical sections. The smooth low-end power blends seamlessly into a stronger midrange and top end, and the increase in torque at all rpm results in fewer shifts so that riders can focus more on trail challenges. The mass-centralisation philosophy of the CRF is carried over to this trail model, with the muffler positioned closer to the centre of mass. The result is a lighter feel, intuitive responsiveness, and confidence-inspiring handling, especially on corner entrances. The Pro-Link® rear suspension system puts the smooth power to the ground, and the Showa 41mm fork works with the new frame's steering geometry to provide maximum front-wheel traction. Braking is handled with new petal-style rotors for improved modulation, heat transfer and mud clearing, and the CRF Performance Line-inspired aggressive, compact bodywork allows improved rider/machine interface. Hot or cold, stored in the garage or stopped on the bad line up a challenging hill, the CRF250F's EFI and electric starter fire up the engine with the touch of a button, and there are no carburettor circuits to clog with fuel residue if the bike sits for extended periods. The new, 6 Litre fuel tank enables good range and is protected between the frame spars in the event of a fall, and the integrated fuel pump includes a low-fuel sensor with a handlebarmounted indicator. Add it all up, and the all-new CRF250F is more bike, for more riders.

Updates
 All-new 250cc overhead-cam engine.
 All-new Keihin electronically controlled fuel injection systems delivers more linear power and easy start-up whether bike has been sitting or is hot on the trail.
 All-new tubular steel frame for a stable, nimble chassis.
 CRF Performance Line philosophy of mass centralization applied to vehicle packaging.
 New 41mm fork, plus Pro-Link rear-suspension system with single shock.

 Handlebar-mounted low-fuel and "key on" indicator lights.
 CRF Performance Line-inspired muffler with compact positioning.
 CRF Performance Line-inspired bodywork and graphics.

Engine
 The 250cc SOHC engine returns with smoother, more linear power delivery.
 Five -speed gearbox is well matched to the broad power spread.
 Electric starter makes getting going a breeze

NZ Super-X Championships Winton - 13th Dec 2018

NZ Super-X Winton Oreti

DECEMBER 12, 2018: There's no denying the supercross talent of riders such as Ben Townley, Josiah Natzke, Carlin Hedley and Korban Paget.

These were the riders who produced unbeaten performances at a damp round one of the New Zealand Supercross Championships at Tokoroa a fortnight ago and the question now is can they repeat those performances at the second and final round near Invercargill this Saturday (December 15)?

Four of the five championship classes were dominated by just one rider at the Tokoroa circuit, although there is plenty that might still happen during the final races at Winton this Saturday.

Oropi's Townley (SX1, open class), Mount Maunganui's Natzke (SX2, 250cc), Ohaupo's Hedley (SX Lites, 125cc) and Rangiora's Paget (Junior 250) each recorded a hat-trick of wins in their respective classes at Tokoroa, while, in the remaining championship class, the Junior Lites, Hamilton bothers Nicholas and Dylan Westgate ended up sharing the top spot.

Nicholas Westgate finished with a 1-1-7 score-card at Tokoroa, while his sibling rival Dylan Westgate scored 2-3-2 results, Nicholas eventually getting the nod as overall winner thanks to the count-back rule.

Each of these riders know there's plenty still to be done before the championships wrap up at Winton on Saturday, except for Hedley, who learned this week that he has already been crowned champion of the SX Lites class.

With insufficient entries for this class at Winton, the class has been dropped from the programme for this weekend and the result has been declared.

Meanwhile, Townley has indicated that he may not be racing at Winton this weekend, perhaps leaving the way clear for the runner-up rider in the SX1 class, Taupo's Cohen Chase, to take advantage.

However, Nelson's Reece Walker is also well-positioned, just two points behind Chase.

Motueka's Josh Coppins is tipped to make his first appearance in the series on Saturday and that may upset a few points calculations too.

Former factory Grand Prix motocross star Coppins won the SX2 class in the supercross nationals last season, jumping in at the last minute to replace an injured Maximus Purvis, but this year Coppins will be racing in the SX1 class.

Saturday's event at Winton at the VetSouth Super-X Track in Ryan Road, is billed as "the world's southern-most supercross". It is always an extremely popular venue and sure to draw a large crowd.

The Tokoroa event was supported by Craig Stevens Yamaha and the Winton event, hosted by the Southland Motorcycle Club, will be supported by Brent Scammell Honda.
