Announced in May 2019, the updated CRF250R and RX feature a number of improvements. The trail-only models get an updated chassis, borrowing the CRF450R’s frame and swingarm. The 249cc single-cylinder engine receives an updated cam profile, a revised exhaust valve timing, as well as an updated second gear ratio which are meant to give the bikes more mid-range grunt. The Showa fork and shocks have also been revised.
Pricing for the 2020 CRF250R is set at $7,999 and at $8,299 for the CRF250RX.
