        Honda has refreshed its multi championship-winning CRF family of off-road machines for the 2022 model year. At the forefront this update are the revised CRF250R and CRF250RX.


        The 2022 Honda CRF250R and CRF250RX inherited several technical advancements from its bigger siblings, the CRF450R and CRF450RX. These new tech bits will make it easier for riders of all levels to go faster consistently for longer.

        The 2021 CRF450R’s frame and swingarm—that won multiple FIM World Motocross Championships (MXGP)—has found its way into the CRF250R. The 250 also received extensive engine upgrades, a new 9 plate clutch, revised suspension, and 3kg worth of weight saving.

        The 2022 models’ engines benefited from extensive intake and exhaust revisions, which includes a larger airbox, re-angled fuel injectors, revised valve timings, a ‘straight down’ exhaust port, and a lighter single exhaust. The 9 plate clutch allows for better endurance, feel, and lighter lever action. Power is transmitted through revised gear ratios. The engine changes netted the bike a 10% improvement in top power and 15% more mid-range torque, enhancing both top speeds and low to mid-range drive.


        The new frame and swingarm on the current CRF450R, which has taken Tim Gajser to back-to-back MXGP Championships in 2019 and 2020, has its rigidity balance and geometry optimised. The structure is also supported by new re-valved Showa suspension for better cornering ability and handling.

        The bodywork is new. The radiator shrouds are made from a single piece of plastic, and feature a new lower vent for better airflow to the radiator. The seat is shorter, lighter, and 10mm lower at the rear to improve rider freedom and movement.

        The 2022 CRF250RX received the same updates as its motocross sibling, plus unique ECU fuel injection mapping to enhance enduro performance, an 8L plastic fuel tank (instead of the CRF250R’s 6.3L titanium tank), a forged aluminium side stand, and new knuckle guards as standard.


        The 2022 CRF250R, CRF250RX, along with the smaller CRF150R, CRF125F, CRF110F, and CRF50F follow the lead of the 2021 CRF450R and CRF450RX and feature striking all-red graphics.

        Itching to find out how these revised bikes fare out on the dirt? We’ll have to wait for  word from Honda Philippines on whether or not these will be offered locally.
