THE UNDER $4000 HONDA CRF250…OOPS! IT’S NOT A CRF250. IT’S A SSR SR250R

It would be easy to make fun of the SSR SR250R. After all, this Chinese knockoff should be a major source of embarras s ment for whoever made it. Why? If they had the ability to make a 250cc, aluminum-framed, four-stroke motocross bike, they should have been proud enough of not to borrow the look and design from Honda. What is interesting about the SSR SR250R isn?t its 260-pound dry weight, 26 horsepower or 34mm carburetor, but the simple fact that this bike retails $3699 (and is on sale for $3299 at so…

As a rule, the MXA wrecking crew keeps our test bikes in stock trim. Even though we have access to every hop-up part in the world, we need to keep our bikes as stock as possible to ensure a fair platform for testing individual aftermarket products and different settings throughout the year. When we test major modifications, w…

WE RIDE TREY CANARD’S GEICO HONDA CRF250:

Testing a factory-level motocross bike is always special for the MXA wrecking crew. We can?t help but admire the passion and effort that factory teams invest in their bikes. Every square inch of the machine is checked, changed, strengthened or massaged before every race. It’s taxing work, but it’s done for the sake of winning. To think that an engine alone takes over a day to rebuild, not to mention entirely stripping the bike down to the frame between race weekends, is mind numbing in terms of time and…
