    2018 Honda CRF250R First Ride Review: Honda’s DOHC 250cc Contender

    But when Honda unveiled its all-new quarter-liter motocross contender last July, the 2018 Honda CRF250R featured a twist that even the 2018 Honda CRF450R can’t claim—an all-new, DOHC, dual exhaust port engine. Naturally, we were dying to swing a leg over the new machine and see for ourselves whether it had the goods to reclaim the top spot in the 250cc motocross hierarchy. That day finally came today at Zaca Station, near Buellton, California, where Honda allowed us to be among the first wave of dirtbike journos to ride the new bike. Today was also the day that Honda finally announced the MSRP of the 2018 CRF250R. The new CRF will be available in dealer showrooms this December for $7999.
