How much power does a crf250r have? or any other 250 four stroke?


Recommended Posts

im looking to pick up a crf250f. i have rode 450s and i feel comfortable on that but i dont need that much. is the 250 a big drop in power? like if i were to give the crf250r a good twist of the trottle would i feel the force and the pull like the bikes wants to rip out of my hands like the 450? i have rode a cr85 and i can feel that pull. i just have never rode a 250 and am worried it will be weak in power like the 150f i currently have.

They aren't weak, the older carb'd 250s about 35 horsepower. 450s make about 45 and more torque. The newer F.I. bikes make about 5 more and have snappier response.

They certainly can rip out of your hands in the upper rev ranges but they are tamer down low than a 450. Many vet and expert riders prefer a 250 over a 450 for controllable power if that tells you anything.
