Changes were limited primarily to a revalving of the 47mm Showa fork, and a new front brake master cylinder that features a link-type connection to the lever. There's an old saw in motorcycle racing that says motorcycles don't win races, riders do. What's often unsaid is that a well-designed and well-executed machine allows the rider to do what they do best: apply their well-honed skills to winning.
It's no wonder then that Honda's four-stroke CRF250R motocrosser is fast-becoming the winning platform for numerous competitors in multiple disciplines. And with the introduction of the 2007 CRF250R, Honda has seemingly done the impossible: taken a proven design and made it even better, so that more riders--of all skill levels--can step into victory circle with regularity.
