TWO-STROKE TUESDAY | 2005 HONDA CR125 FULL TEST
(1) Honda had lost faith in the CR’s sales value and had used its previous production time for some larger selling model, like the CRF250. Thus, the pushed the two-strokes back on the schedule because they weren’t as important to the big picture.
(2) The CRs were undergoing serious remodeling and Honda’s engineers needed more time to finalize all of the changes. This isn’t uncommon (the Suzuki RM-Z450 four-stroke was pushed back four months for fine tuning).
