The Honda CRF250R is the works MX2 machine developed by Team HRC’s engineers and the technical might of Honda Racing Corporation and Honda’s R&D department in Japan. It’s a masterpiece of engineering efficiency and performance.
Tim Gajser took the first of his five world titles in 2015 on-board his CRF250RW, marking a motocross milestone for Honda and HRC. Then in the 2018 MX2 category, Calvin Vlaanderen joined Team HRC to campaign this factory machine, winning the MXGP of Indonesia and landing on the podium numerous times throughout that season to finish sixth overall.
And injury-hit 2019 meant he wasn’t able to quite reach those same heights, but he did win a moto at the MXGP of Sweden and then help the Netherlands win their first ever Motocross of Nations in the torrential rain at Assen, proving the CRF250R capable in whatever conditions were thrown at it.
After taking a brief-hiatus, but spurred on by the success of Jett and Hunter Lawrence on-board their Honda CRF250R’s in America, Team HRC is back competing in the MX2 World Championship for 2024 with rookie Ferruccio Zanchi. Coming into the stacked MX2 division won’t be an easy task, but both rider and machine are prepared to show that Honda is ready to do battle on the world stage with their 250cc machine.
