The Honda CRF250RW 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, and the 2018 bike is based upon the all-new production machine, which in turn build upon the 2015 World Championship-winning machine.

Tim Gajser took the first of his back-to-back titles in 2015 on his CRF250RW, marking a motocross milestone for Honda and HRC. Now, in the 2018 MX2 category, Calvin Vlaanderen joins Team HRC to campaign this all-new factory machine.

The Honda CRF has remarkable motorsport lineage and is a force to be reckoned with across all off-road disciplines.

In the MX2 category of the FIM Motocross World Championship, Gajser took the first of his back-to-back titles in 2015 on his CRF250RW, followed by the MXGP title on the 2016 CRF450RW, marking a motocross milestone for Honda and HRC.

In the Dakar rally, the new Honda CRF450 RALLY has been delivering remarkable performances since 2014, and has taken stage wins and led the infamous event in 2016, 2017 and 2018. In the Enduro World Championship, Redmoto’s campaign is successfully building upon past successes such as Alex Salvini’s 2013 World Championship title aboard his CRF450R, Giacomo Redondi’s EJ World Championship crown in 2016 and Davide Soreca’s second place in the EJ World Championship in 2017.

At the other end of the spectrum, the CRF150R provides the ideal first step in a 4-stroke motocross career, and Honda 150 European Championship graduates like Alberto Forato are now blossoming, becoming the next generation of winners in the highly-competitive EMX250 class.
