Like the 2011 CRF450R, Honda's also gave the 2011 CRF250R a new Honda Progressive Steering Damper (HPSD) with a new, bigger 24mm piston. That gives you more damping when you need it, but still remains as transparent as ever when you don’t. Better handling, better balance, better tracking, especially at the limits of performance: the new 2011 CRF250R has it all.
