Honda 2020 CRF250R Dirt Motorcycle

The new Honda 2020 CRF250R Dirt Motorcycle is among those powerful dirt motorcycles that most people love. There are two things that riders should keep in mind, i.e., the most direct path to the podium starts with snaring the holeshot, and second, the Honda’s CRF250R is another absolute holeshot-seeking machine. In the year 2020, the lock on holeshot is looking better than ever. The 2020 CRF250R has a new frame and swingarm, all-new intake and exhaust valves including a new intake cam and some other improvements. The air filter volume and surface area are up to ensure greater power and fantastic riding pleasure.

A machine that took Chase Sexton to the 2019 AMA 250SX East Region Supercross Championship and Jace Owen to the 2019 Kicker Arenacross title gets a host of essential updates for 2020, engine enhancements aimed at bettering low-to-midrange power. To increase the torque and drivability, an all-new cam profile is used, including a newly designed combustion chamber, while the exhaust resonator has been removed. On the other hand, maneuverability is increased by using the lighter frame and swingarm with optimized flex characteristics, including lower battery position and internal front-and-rear suspension updates.
