Honda has given its CRF250R and CRF450R dirt bikes a Union Jack-inspired paint job. The limited edition red, white and blue colour scheme is to celebrate this summer’s sporting events.

A Honda spokesman said it was intended to 'echo the stylistic cues from the Union Jack flag,' adding: 'Rather poignant, given the series of summer events across the UK, encouraging us to celebrate everything great about being British.'

Graphics on the competition off-roaders can be personalised to include the rider’s name and race number.

Honda recently announced updates to the CRF250R and CRF450R, with the 450 getting air-sprung front suspension.
