Honda launches 5 new off-road bikes, going big on motocross for 2023

In an exclusive Ride Red Activity held this weekend at the JMS Motocross School in Maycauayan, Bulacan, Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), introduced five new variants to add to their off-road motorcycle lineup for 2023: CRF450R, CRF250R, CRF150R, CRF125F Big Wheel, and CRF125F.

The CRF450R and the CRF250R reign supreme in Off-Road motorsports as the Champion bikes of Honda, used by the 2022 World Champion Chase Sexton for MXGP and 2022 AMA Pro Motocross Champion Jett Lawrence. These models are designed to be used on the dirt track.

Meanwhile, The CRF150R, CRF125F, and CRF125F Big Wheel are more suited to outdoor trail riding because of their compact in size and torque-oriented configuration. All these new bikes from Honda are not street-legal and are designed to be used off-road exclusively.

“As Honda continues to dominate in motocross globally, we’re thrilled to announce that the JMS-MOS-Honda Ride Red MX Team will be participating in the upcoming MX races in the country for 2023. This includes the Davsons Pro Motocross Series, Teves Motocross Series, other motocross races, and enduro trail races,” said HPI president Susumu Mitsuishi.

“Honda’s legendary success in motocross has gone from strength to strength, and today’s activity pays tribute to this prestigious history. In addition, we provided this Motocross School CRF units for its students. This effort is also in preparation for the upcoming series of motocross championships in 2023,” adds Mitsuishi. The JMS Motocross School was founded and operated by Philippine motocross legend Jovie Saulog.

“Honda’s Ride Red campaign will be appreciated by motocross enthusiasts having more reasons to take part in our activities– from trail rides, jamborees, riding clinics, and fun races. These experiences are exciting and something to look forward to, especially since we feature some of the country’s thrilling and must-see off-grid destinations, so Let’s Ride Red!” said Jomel Jerezo, Vice-President for MC Sales and Supply Chain.

HPI will announce more details about unit availability and pricing soon. For other information, you may visit and follow HPI on Facebook at Honda Philippines, Inc., and Instagram at @hondaph_mc. You can also contact (02)-8581-6700 to 6799 and 0917-884-6632.
