Honda’s new CRF250RX motocross bike is now in the Philippines


Honda has announced that the latest addition to its roster of high-performance rough terrain bikes — the 2022 Honda CRF250RX — is now in the Philippines.

Touted as the ideal trail and Enduro companion, the all-new Honda CRF250RX has slim bodywork and lightweight chassis based on a reworked 249cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke single-cylinder DOHC engine that, according to Ultimate Motorcycling, gets a 20 percent power increase at 6500 rpm.

The motorbike promises enhanced performance with its new airbox, which now has 78 percent increased capacity, and fuel injector that is now positioned at a much steeper 60 degrees. In addition, its combustion chamber is equipped with a new piston and connecting rod. 

CRF250RX is also equipped with HRC Launch Control that allows the engine to accelerate smoothly and prevent engine failure due to over-revving. With its Engine Mode Select Button, riders are able to adapt to a wide range of riding conditions and quickly respond to changes in engine character.

The CRF250RX is boosted with a Showa-calibrated 49mm up side down front fork, which adds riding comfort to its adjustable steel spring preload and rebound damping suspension even in tough terrain. In addition, its Pro-Link rear suspension provides faster response and bumps absorption.

Its twin-spar frame features narrower main tubes to elevate cornering performance, while the bike’s 21-inch front & 18-inch rear wheels make navigating motocross tracks and ATV parks easy. What’s more, the CRF250RX comes with an 8-liter fuel tank for long-distance rides.

Other features include kunckle guards for more driving comfort and an engine guard to protect the engine for any damages that may be acquired during trail rides.

The CRF250RX comes in its single color variant — Extremely Red — and with a retail price of P469,000 in all Honda Motorcycles dealerships nationwide.
