The Honda CRF250M is based on the on/off-road model CRF250L, which was released in May 2012 and has been well received. It is a model that realizes styling full of feeling.

For the suspension, a large-diameter floating-type disc rotor is used for the front brake, and the rear suspension settings have been changed to make it easier to maneuver in pursuit of on-road steering stability.
The engine uses the water-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 250cc single-cylinder engine that has a good reputation in the CRF250L and is powerful and has excellent fuel efficiency.

  • Supermotard is a popular competition, especially in Europe, in which off-road models are fitted with small-diameter wheels and on-road tires, competing for speed on a course that mixes pavement and dirt.

Main Features of Honda CRF250M 2013


Based on the sharp styling of the CRF250L, exclusive coloring and graphics are applied to create a cool super motard image. The body color is two types of extreme red and black. Extreme Red has black aluminum wheels and red seats, while Black has gold aluminum wheels and black seats. In addition, the frame and swingarm are unified in matt axis gray metallic, and the front fork is black anodized to create a fearless image that emphasizes individuality.


While following the frame of the CRF250L, it is equipped with 17-inch on-road tires and front and rear suspension settings to pursue light handling and stability on winding roads in urban areas and suburbs. The front brake disc rotor has a diameter of 296mm, which is larger than the CRF250L's 256mm, in consideration of on-road usability, to improve braking power. The seat height is set at 855mm, which is 20mm lower than the CRF250L, thanks to the adoption of 17-inch wheels front and rear, providing good grounding.


Like the CRF250L engine, it has both powerful torque characteristics from the low rev range and output characteristics that extend to high revs, which is typical of a water-cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC engine. In addition to the adoption of a wide range of low-friction technologies such as offset cylinders and roller rocker arms, the electronically controlled fuel injection system (PGM-FI *2) and O2 A synergistic effect between the installation of sensors and the catalyst device (catalyzer) installed in the muffler realizes high environmental performance and excellent fuel efficiency of 44.3 km / L (60 km / h constant driving test value). It has come true.
