The CRF250R has always been a serious contender in the motocross world, and the 2018 revised model is no different!

For 2018, Honda’s new CRF250R has a redesigned DOHC engine, making 9% more peak power over a much broader rev range with higher redline. It also features electric start as standard, and shares its mass-centralised chassis with the CRF450R as well as featuring 49mm Showa USD front fork.

Mr Mikio Uchiyama, Large Project Leader (LPL) 18YM CRF250R says:

“Our new CRF250R has been redesigned to achieve outstanding hole shot start acceleration AND much greater engine performance over a lap. We have replaced the Unicam power unit with a brand new DOHC engine that revs so much harder, and higher. It’s matched with our CRF450R chassis that improves handling and rear wheel grip. Developed with direct input from HRC to be the complete package, the 18YM CRF250R is a competitive, durable and formidable race machine.”

Ride Culture – Bristol’s Newest Bike Show – Saturday 13th May 2017

Ride Culture – a celebration of the resurgent bobber, café racer and retro motorcycle scene – will kick off with a preview party at Bristol’s Paintworks on Friday 12th May at 6pm.

Fowlers, Bristol’s well-known and long-established motorcycle dealer, will be supporting this exciting new event, to help get it off to a strong start. The team at Fowlers has picked a selection of cool machines to bring to the show, including its own ‘take’ on the all-conquering Triumph Bobber, plus a pair of Yamaha’s yard-built custom machines and a Moto Guzzi V7 Sport in retro colours.

Named the best place to live in Britain by the Sunday Times, Bristol has become associated with all things cool, and riders involved in this alternative bike culture felt that the time had come for the city to host its own special event – with a unique Bristol twist – along the lines of the Bike Shed (Shoreditch, London) and The One Show (Portland, USA).

Curated by Spoke & Stringer, the show will feature back-to-basics machines that capture the raw pleasure of motorcycling, like Down & Out’s awesome custom Bobber (one of the highlights of the NEC) and Old Empire’s classy Bonneville T120 (below), alongside an assortment of factory customs from Triumph, Yamaha, Ducati and BMW. Individual and team builders from across the South West will also be displaying their creations.

Fowlers will be bringing a hand-picked selection of the coolest clothing and helmets from some great heritage brands for you to see, such as Belstaff, Bell and Hedon, featuring authentic-looking retro ranges to help you look as good as your ride!

Your other senses will be treated, too, with great food, drink and music:

PLUS Street food from Spoke & Stringer’s award-winning kitchen, craft ales, local cider and Easy Jose speciality Coffee.

Paintworks is a stylish event space in Bristol’s ‘Creative Quarter’, just a couple of minutes’ ride up the A4 Bath Road from Fowlers’ spectacular showrooms, where you can see new bikes from Moto Guzzi, Triumph, Yamaha, Suzuki, Aprilia, Honda, KTM, Husqvarna, Piaggio and Vespa, plus hundreds of pre-owned machines of all makes.

Book tickets on-line here.

Hurry….space is limited and they’ll be sure to sell out fast!

Ride Culture is more than just an event – it’s a life-style!

Bristol Post have reported that motorcycle theft has been on the rise in the past few months, with an increase in crime in the south of Bristol especially. No-one wants to leave home in the morning to see their pride and joy has been stolen, so take this opportunity to secure your machine!

We offer a complete range of security devices at Fowlers, from small disc locks that can be carried in your bag or under a seat, to more heavy-duty chains and ground anchors.

A disc lock is often the most cost-effective option, offering some protection from thieves by attaching to your front brake disc. A reminder cable is a good idea too, to make sure you don’t ride away with the lock still on! The Gear Gremlin Tempest disc lock is an ideal solution at only £29.99 – and don’t forget a reminder cable!

 

 

 

The most secure option is a ground anchor and thick, heavy chain. Buy the most expensive chain you can, with a sturdy padlock (with a contained bar if possible). A ground anchor can be fixed into concrete, and your chain firmly attached to it. Always pass your chain through the rear wheel, and if possible, the frame of your bike. The Gear Gremlin ground anchor, at £40.00, can be paired with a Nimrod chain and lock for £64.99.
