There are two things you need to know about 250 motocrossers: First, the most direct path to the podium starts with snaring the holeshot. Second, Honda’s CRF250R is an absolute holeshot-seeking machine. And this year, your lock on the holeshot is looking better than ever. That’s because the 2020 CRF250R gets a new frame and swingarm, new intake and exhaust valves, a new intake cam, new head pipes, stronger clutch springs, and other improvements like the battery mounted lower for a better center of gravity. Air filter volume and surface area is up, and that means more power, all making an awesome bike even better.
