American Honda has today released details on the 2014 Honda CRF250R (above) and CRF450R (below).

The new generation CRF250R features an all-new engine and rolling chassis. This newest CRF250R has been designed specifically for ‘generation scrub’ according to Honda.

The all-new frame is designed to lower the bike’s centre of gravity and it also incorporates a dual-muffler exhaust system to further sharpen handling by centralising the bike’s mass.

A thoroughly revised engine adds a big load of mid-range punch, thanks to a new cylinder head, new piston, higher compression ratio, plus a new dual-timing fuel injection system, and a new transmission.

As for the 2014 Honda CRF450R, introduced in 2013, the latest version of the CRF450R has already proven itself a winner at the highest levels of racing.

It features a rolling chassis fully focused on meeting the needs of today’s generation of riders via an aluminum frame along with an innovative suspension package, plus a strategically engineered compact dual-muffler exhaust system that tucks in closely to the center of mass.

Designed from the ground up as a total package that would be eminently flickable, responsive and lightweight, every element in the CRF450R chassis has been focused on attaining a low center of gravity along with class-leading mass centralisation.

For 2014, new intake and exhaust ports, new Dual-Timing fuel injection and redesigned muffler internals boost torque output and increase throttle response.

Also, in the suspension department, revised internals in the KYB PSF (Pneumatic Spring Fork) yield improved damping response for improved bump performance.

As before, the advantages to the KYB PSF include significantly lighter weight since it uses air in place of traditional steel springs, and the design also allows incorporation of a larger 32mm cartridge damper piston.
