Honda Releases Limited Edition Black 2009 CRF250R

18 December 2008 – Honda has released a limited edition black 2009 CRF250R, featuring fresh graphics and aggressive styling.

The master of the 250 class keeps getting better, and the latest edition of the CRF250R is no exception.

A pure, race-bred heir to the all-conquering CRF450R, the CRF250R is a commanding presence on Supercross and Motocross racetracks around the world.

Benefiting directly from its big brother’s technologies and componentry, the smaller powerhouse is renowned for its fast-revving and powerful 4-stroke engine and unique dual silencer exhaust system.

The impressive acceleration delivered by the CRF250R’s high-revving liquid-cooled 4-valve Unicam engine is now smoother, with enhanced low to mid-range torque feel and effortless gear changes.

In addition to the bike being more compact in order to reduce weight wherever possible, the rugged frame and chassis have also been trimmed resulting in beautifully adept handling.

Suspension settings have been refined and matched by new steering damper settings for superb control and traction on even the most punishing and least predictable surfaces.

In addition to more aggressive styling, the CRF250R’s new Works-type handlebar design features longer grips with longer tapered cushions and deep pre-cut wire grooves for tighter, slip-free wire grip.

The limited edition Black CRF250R will be available from Dealerships in early January 2009 until sold out, at a recommended retail price of $10,290.
