Team HRC Unveil 2016 Honda CRFs at MXGP of Italy

Posted:

The 2016 Honda CRF450R and CRF250R were revealed today at the MXGP of Italy by Team HRC riders Gautier Paulin and Evgeny Bobryshev and Honda Gariboldi‰Ûªs Tim Gajser and Jorge Zaragoza.

Joining them in the reveal were HRC‰Ûªs General Manager for MXGP Roger Harvey and Honda Motor Europe‰Ûªs Off-Road Manager Davy Dousselaere.

The Motocross World Championship was an apposite host for the premiere, as the production models revealed draw much of their technological development from the factory machines proven in the heat of competition.

The 2016 machines represent further technical evolutions of two key models in Honda‰Ûªs CRF line-up, which ranges from the youngster-friendly CRF50F through to the multiple Dakar stage winning CRF450 RALLY.

The CRF450R benefits from further improvements to suspension, damping and steering geometry, whilst the CRF250R also enjoys suspension improvements coupled to improved top-end power and torque developed in conjunction with HRC.

Both the new machines will be on public display throughout this weekend at Maggiora and at the following MXGP of Germany at Teutschenthal.

‰ÛÏI had a standard 2015 CRF450R at home for riding which I really liked but when they changed it for a ‰Ûª16 model I was really happy. I‰Ûªve had a few mornings riding the bike and it‰Ûªs working awesome. The ‰Ûª15 bike was good but the ‰Ûª16 is ever better.‰Û
