Honda’s 249cc MX power plant gains a redesigned camshaft with titanium exhaust valves and lighter exhaust and inlet valve springs.
A redesigned intake port and airbox boot optimises airflow.
Detailed improvements to the footpegs and their mounts make it much harder for close-packed mud to jam the footpeg in an ‘up’ position.
Updated Showa SFF-AIR-TAC 49mm front forks. The damping adjustment range increases from 4 click/rotate to 8 click/rotate.
The rear shock and springs are the same as the 2015 model, but the rear end receives new valving and now uses a heavier spring rate in the early part of its stroke.
A new lighter piston and connecting rod allow a revier engine characteristic. Increased compression ratio to 13.8:1 (2015 13.5:1) and a re-designed exhaust resonator increase power over the 2015 model.
