Honda shows 2014 dirt bikes

Bike News

Revamped CRF250R and CRF450R revealed


Honda's 2014 off-roaders have made their first appearance with the firm giving its 250cc four-stroke a hefty makeover and tweaking the bigger 450cc machine.

The CRF450R was given a major update for 2013, and now the same changes - including a new chassis weighing just 9.35kg - have been applied to the 250. It also gets new front and rear suspension and redesigned bodywork.

Engine-wise, more compression and revised porting should boost power while the gearbox is strengthened to cope.

Changes to the bigger bike are more restrained, since it was heavily updated for 2013. Damping has been revised both front and rear, while the engine's ports are tweaked for better gas flow.
