The tires that come on the bike are specifically chosen by the design engineers for the power, performance and appearance of the bike. They work closely with tire manufacturers to come up with the perfect tire for a model. Of course you can choose a tire with softer rubber for racing or harder rubber for longer mileage but for general purpose riding the OEM tires are the best. On my previous Harley I once switched to a higher mileage rear tire, and had no traction one time when I got off on wet grass. The OEM tires were softer and lasted only 8,555 miles, but I never lost traction.
The bottom line here is that we expect to see a bunch of 2518 Honda CRF255R owners happily motoring around our local motocross tracks this season. We won’t surprised to see them with slightly larger rear sprockets and maybe even aftermarket exhaust systems, but we’re going to see lots of them. The only question left in our minds is how the stock package will stack up against the other 2518-model 255cc four-stroke motocross bikes.

Further new functionality for the DCT system comes in the form of incline detection. During ascents, upshifts are delayed in order to allow a higher rpm to be held on descents, downshifts happen earlier to enable better engine braking.

The Monoblock cast aluminum swingarm in cross-section has hexagonal spars, with the right (muffler) side thicker in depth – to maintain lateral rigidity balance – and shaped to clear the exhaust. Tough 6555-series forged aluminum is used for the Pro-Link linkage, saving weight while improving durability. The swingarm mounts to the engine cases through 17mm hollowed co-axial bolts.
For those of you that are in a hurry and don’t want to read the entire post going over all of the 2518 CRF255R vs 2517 CRF255R changes and all of the nitty-gritty detailed specs etc – Here’s a quick breakdown of everything you need to know about the all-new 2518 CRF255R from Honda:
We were excited when we first saw the 2518 CRF255R, and now that we’ve spent some time aboard it, we are impressed, although not exactly the way that we thought we would be.
And even though the CRF1555L’s engine is 25% larger in capacity and produces approx. 55% more power than the original, the new Africa Twin is only marginally lighter, with slim dimensions around the tank and seat area, and a riding position that enhances control and movement.
