The 2013 Honda CRF250X delivers a tasty balance of light weight, low fuel consumption and agile handling. Apart from the fact that is one of the lightest bikes in its class, the motorcycle is also pretty compact and is powered by a capable four stroke engine.
The 249cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder unit is paired with a wide ratio five speed transmission which helps you change gears effortless. The engine is brought to life by a push-button electric starter which is ready to offer a sharp response at any time.
The engine breaths through dual radiators which feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared with conventional dual-radiator designs.
In terms of suspensions the motorcycle rides on a front 47mm inverted Showa cartridge fork with 16-position rebound- and 16-position compression-damping adjustability and a rear pro-Link Showa single shock with spring-preload, 17-position rebound-damping adjustability, and compression damping adjustment.

Honda’s CRF250X stands tall as the machine that delivers a just-right balance of light weight, exemplary handling and tractable four-stroke power. Thanks to its handy size and weight and delightfully agile handling, this thoroughly capable off-road mount flat-out sets the standard for 250-class performance among off-road mounts. Whether you’re into off-road competition or you just enjoy leisurely explorations through the woods, the CRF250X is a great companion to have along for the ride.
Along with its powerful and lightweight engine, the CRF250X has dozens of smart features like works-type front and rear brake discs, a narrow fuel tank that’s easy to move around, and an 18-inch rear wheel for superior tire selection and traction. In short, all the attention to detail you’d expect in a Honda.
Using technology from our National-Championship-winning MX machines, the CRF250X is powered by a four-stroke Unicam engine specially modified for off-road riding. We’ve also tuned the suspension for the trails, and given the rugged transmission wide-ratio gearing to handle conditions in both real-world riding and closed-course racing.
Best of all, its electric starter puts you on the fast track with the push of a button, and is a godsend on rocky trails or gnarly uphills.
The closer you look at a CRF250X, the more you’re going to like it. And that’ll go double when you actually ride it.
With its Unicam cylinder head, this liquid-cooled four-stroke puts out loads of power over a wide rpm band for maximum trail performance.
Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil and permits the use of a smaller oil pump.
Dual radiators feature a refined core area for improved heat dissipation compared with conventional dual-radiator designs. Coolant recovery tank is located in front of the engine between the frame downtubes for improved center of gravity. Coolant tank is protected by a plastic skidplate.
Wheels and Brakes
The 18-inch rear wheel features same lightweight rear hub and HRC works-type lightweight-aluminum spoke nipples as used on CRF250R.
The compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight new 240mm new front disc increase stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling. HRC works-type rear brake system adds a new 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.

Placing the rider’s legs at the narrowest part of the frame improves comfort and handling, while the aluminum Renthal handlebar (971 bend) is rubber-mounted to help reduce rider fatigue and improve comfort.
You also get a modern LED taillight which is integrated into rear fender. Needless to say that it is light, compact, and bulletproof.
