2012 Honda CRF250 X | Preview/Specs

Honda CRF250X

Honda has proven itself with the CRF250 X; the dirt bike has offered that balance of light weight, handling and power that off-road motorcyclists crave.

And not much has changed for 2012…well, except for some bolder graphics.

Honda says: "This handy, agile and thoroughly capable off-road mount flat-out sets the standard for 250-class performance among the off-road crowd whether you’re into racing or just fun-time explorations through the woods."

The 2012 Honda CRF 250 X will be available this October.
