2024 Honda CRF250F Preview

Honda returns its easy-riding and family-friendly CRF250F for 2024.

American Honda’s 2024 CRF250F returns to the new motorcycle lineup unchanged, with a starting price of $4,999. It’s available now from your friendly neighborhood Honda dealer. Compared to the competition-specification CRF250R and CRF250RX, the “F” designation is for recreational off-road riders seeking a durable and easy-riding dirt bike.

The CRF250F has mass off-road rider appeal thanks to its friendly, fuel-injected 250cc single. Engineers added a counterbalancer and additional cc’s a few years back (read the 2019 Honda CRF110F, CRF125F, CRF250F Trail First Look article) and it has only made power delivery and engine character more friendly.

The 2024 Honda CRF250F will start at $4,999.Honda

It’s off-road legal in all 50 states too, which makes things easy for those who find themselves in more restrictive states. It’s a fantastic ride for newbies and experienced off-roaders who want a more subdued machine than the 450 trail bikes in the market. The price tag is also highly palatable as well.

A Showa fork offers 8.5 inches travel at the front while the Pro-Link Showa shock offers spring-preload adjustability with 9.1 inches of travel. The 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel configuration is ideal for off-road conditions and the nimble chassis makes handling through tough terrain a breeze.

Of course, the CRF250F isn’t going to knock any socks off in the performance department, but it will provide a fun and capable off-road experience for just about any rider, regardless of skill level.
