Designed around the principle of 'mass centralisation', the CRF250RX’s seventh-generation aluminium tapered twin-spar frame locates everything as close as possible to the machine’s low centre of gravity to elevate rear wheel traction. Fully adjustable Showa suspension is the perfect match; an 18-inch rear wheel opens up tyre choice and a forged aluminium sidestand tucks neatly out of the way. The redesigned front brake calliper uses different sized pistons–it’s lighter and more powerful–while a new fork protector neatly reduces the chance of picking up stone damage.
The Renthal Fatbar reduces the weight of the steering system and flexes slightly for comfort; the top yoke features two handlebar-holder locations for moving the handlebar rearward and forward by 26mm. When the holder is turned 180 degrees, the handlebar can be moved an additional 10mm from the base position, resulting in four unique riding positions.
