American Honda’s 2024 CRF250F returns to the new motorcycle lineup unchanged, with a starting price of $4,999. It’s available now from your friendly neighborhood Honda dealer. Compared to the competition-specification CRF250R and CRF250RX, the “F” designation is for recreational off-road riders seeking a durable and easy-riding dirt bike.

The CRF250F has mass off-road rider appeal thanks to its friendly, fuel-injected 250cc single. Engineers added a counterbalancer and additional cc’s a few years back (read the 2019 Honda CRF110F, CRF125F, CRF250F Trail First Look article) and it has only made power delivery and engine character more friendly.

The 2024 Honda CRF250F will start at $4,999.

It’s off-road legal in all 50 states too, which makes things easy for those who find themselves in more restrictive states. It’s a fantastic ride for newbies and experienced off-roaders who want a more subdued machine than the 450 trail bikes in the market. The price tag is also highly palatable as well.

A Showa fork offers 8.5 inches travel at the front while the Pro-Link Showa shock offers spring-preload adjustability with 9.1 inches of travel. The 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheel configuration is ideal for off-road conditions and the nimble chassis makes handling through tough terrain a breeze.

Of course, the CRF250F isn’t going to knock any socks off in the performance department, but it will provide a fun and capable off-road experience for just about any rider, regardless of skill level.

Final Encore—Bizzarrini P538

Photo: Casey AnnisThe 1950s and 1960s were a time of rapid change in both the road and racecar world. Technology was advancing quickly and with this advancement, it became increasingly harder and harder for a lone individual—either engineer or visionary—to be solely responsible for a complete automobile. Yet, some amazing vehicles were given birth during this time by some of the last of these automotive prodigies. One such automotive savant was Italian Giotto Bizzarrini. A tenacious and talented engineer and development driver, Bizzarrini either created or played a major role in some of the most iconic cars of the 1960s, including several built under his own name. Any true understanding of Bizzarrini’s cars, however, first requires an understanding of the man, as the two are virtually inseparable.

The author unleashes a healthy dose of the “Anniversario” Bizzarrini’s prodigious horsepower.

Born Survivor

Giotto Bizzarrini was born in June 6, 1926, in Quercianella, near Livorno, Italy. Born into a long line of engineers, it is perhaps not surprising that Bizzarrini would gravitate toward things mechanical. However, his early childhood years were more dominated by soccer and hunting, at least until World War II intervened. When the war broke out, Giotto’s father took up arms against the Germans, leaving young Giotto behind to fend for his family. During the war years, times were tough and much of what the Bizzarrini family had to eat ended up coming from Giotto’s hunting prowess. Bizzarrini would look back on these years of deprivation and state, “That period really influenced me for the rest of my life. It made me into a survivor, somewhat of a maverick.”

Saturday special: An elegant three-wheeler with a Mazda engine

three wheeler mazda 745x497 1

Custom three-wheeler with Mazda engine and motorcycle parts
Although Bike EXIF is dedicated to art on two wheels, our automotive interests are wide-ranging. Our publisher has an enviable car collection, our workshop editor, Dean, is a vintage snowmobile fiend, and I’ve been in love with the Morgan Super 3 ever since I test-drove it at the Malle Mile. So today we’re bending the rules, and bringing you a stunning three-wheeler that’s only really thirty percent motorcycle.

Dubbed the ‘MAC 2,’ it’s the second handmade three-wheeler from Indonesian engineer and vintage bike enthusiast, Cosmas Lili Sudrajat. Cosmas has a major crush on Morgan’s V-twin-powered three-wheelers—but they’re expensive and hard to come by in Indonesia. Luckily, he knows his way around a workshop.

The V-twin powerplant bolted to the front of the MAC 2 isn’t a motorcycle engine though. It’s out of a Mazda B600—a pint-sized, Japanese-made station wagon that was a hit in Indonesia in the 1960s. “The Mazda’s air-cooled 600 cc V-twin engine is the perfect size for a three-wheeler,” says Cosmas.

Once the Mazda B600 had been torn down to just its chassis and motor, Cosmas chopped off the rear half of the frame and installed a repurposed Honda swingarm. Repurposed 18” laced motorcycle wheels do duty up front, modified with cast aluminum MAC-branded hubcaps.

The 2024 season welcomes the return of numerous racing favorites, including Andrew Morrow, who readies himself for a step up to the EU Challenge in 2024, and Tom Fleming, the EU Challenge rookie who went on to win the World Championship at Finali Mondiali in Mugello last October. With both drivers showing great talent, the stage is set for a hotly contested season opener.

Several exciting newcomers also make their debut in the series this year, hoping to seize the initiative and pilot their Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo race cars to victory in the final solus year for the 488 model, before the introduction of the new 296 Challenge in 2025.
