The 2005 CRF250R from Honda represents the highest level of off-the-shelf performance found in a modern machine. Priced at $6,199, this Honda is a closed-course motorcycle designed for competition use on an MX track. Although engineered to be totally competitive in stock form, the CRF250R is also the perfect platform to modify in order to meet your specific riding style, ability, and setup preferences. A 249cc 4-stroke engine delivers power to the ground, while the inverted fork, fully adjustable shock and 204-pound dry weight work together to maximize the handling characteristics. Read a more in-depth test of the CRF250R - as well as the rest of the 2005 machines.

Honda's heritage in motocross is absolutely legendary. From the days of David Bailey and Ricky Johnson to Supercross hero Jeremy McGrath and, more recently, racers like Trey Canard, Honda's competitive machines have always found success on the racetrack. With that, bikes like the 2005 CRF250R come from a strong bloodline, and the performance found in this 249cc powerplant reflects the top-tier technology given to the fastest red riders in the world.
