The 250 EXC-F is a proven winner in the fiercely fought enduro series and enjoys the recognition of several prestigious world championship titles. This machine shares many basic components with the successful engine of the 350 EXC-F and excels with first-class performance and plenty of torque from the bottom end up, thanks to its advanced design and state-of-the-art fuel injection. The bike is manoeuvrable, agile and controllable, quickly gaining the complete trust of the rider. The DDS clutch features Brembo hydraulics for comfortable clutch operation, while an electric starter and a kickstarter make starting no problem in every situation. Newly developed oil strainer sealing rings are used for MY 2015 to provide better durability in the most extreme conditions and a longer service life.
The crankshaft of the 250 EXC-F is designed with sufficient gyrating mass for spontaneous throttle response and best possible traction. A plain bearing in the lower conrod eye with two press-fit bearing shells that run directly on the crank pin, increases the longevity of the engine and extends the crankshaft service intervals - two major benefits for the customer.
Thanks to the crankcase being manufactured in a pressure die-casting process, it has been possible to significantly reduce the wall thicknesses compared with a gravity die-cast case. A high-strength aluminium alloy is used, which is extremely resistant to stone impact and other damage.
