The 2018 CRF250R is most anticipated of the pair with major changes to its power plant including a new compact DOHC engine with rocker arms, higher valve lift, larger valve diameter and a higher rev limit resulting in a +5% power-to-weight and peak power at 2000rpm higher.

A new straight intake layout and dual exhaust system further enhance the power and speed range of the entire engine. Adopting an advanced Scavenge Pump system to reduce engine friction and ‘pumping’ losses at high rpm, which results in upgraded engine efficiency. The CRF250Rs redesigned chassis gives the rider absolute control of this new powered-up DOHC engine.

Changes to geometry and dynamic parameters of the frame’s performance give the CRF250R enhanced starting performance, front-end stability and rear wheel traction.

After a complete ‘from the ground up’ re-design of the CRF450R in 2017, the 18YM CRF450R has minor updates.

The electric starter that was previously offered as an accessory is now standard for 2018, along with the lightweight lithium-ion battery. The kick-start lever has been removed for further weight saving measures.

The 2018 CRF450R also gets updated suspension settings aimed at further improving chassis feel and overall action.
