The Honda NX250 was a new concept produced by Honda, a crossover dual sport motorcycle available in the USA from 1988 thru 1990. It is a lightweight bike intended for both on-road and off-road riding. It was never produced in substantial numbers, but was met with generally positive reviews with its perfect balance of power, size, and style.

The NX250 featured an all new compact, liquid cooled, 249cc, single cylinder, four-valve, D.O.H.C, four-stroke engine with electric start. 26 horsepower at 8500 RPM at 11 to 1 compression ratio 2,4 Kgm torque at 7500rpm. It had a bore and stroke of 70.0 x 64.8 mm (2.8 x 2.6 inches) respectively and a six speed transmission.

The NX250 averages 70 miles per gallon (3.6 L/100 km), fuel capacity is 9 litres (2.4 gallons including reserve) with refills needed at around 130 miles. The NX250's maximum speed (per speedometer) is 95 miles per hour (155 km/h), though it has been known to be capable of speeds nearing 100 mph, and it is both quick and agile. The suspension is 37 mm forks with 8.7" travel up front, and Pro-Link with 7.9" in the rear. It has a 1350 mm (53.1") wheelbase and a dry weight of 118 kg (260.2 lb). The seat height is 820 mm (32.3").
