Good news from the Big Red camp, as both the 2015 CRF250R and CRF450R have been fit with a bevy of changes—not just
bold new graphics. Both retain the dual muffler that targets proper
mass (for better handling), improved power and realistic decibel
levels. While last year’s 450 was fit with the KYB PSF air fork, the
CRF250R was fit with a Showa spring unit. This year that changes, as the 250 gets the brand-new Showa SSF Triple Air fork.
Here’s an inside look at both machines, which will be available
right around the time this magazine hits the newsstand.
