2019 Honda CRF250RX and CRF450RX | The RX Line Doubles In Size

When the Honda CRF450RX debuted in 2017, the consensus was that it was only a matter of time until we saw a Honda CRF250RX.

Well, it took two years, but the 2019 Honda CRF250RX has arrived! Like the CRF450RX, the CRF250RX is based on the current CRF-R motocrossers, and are all about GNCC and WORCS racing, as they are closed-course competition motorcycles.
