The CRF 450R raises the bar for other four-strike motocross bikes with its powerful ride and effortless usability. Being light, powerful and responsive, it offers best-in-class performance. The model has been fine-tuned for the racetrack and anyone else who wants a capable off-roader for leisure use will also benefit. With typical Honda build quality, the bike will also deliver a thrilling experience for years to come.
Every aspect of the CRF 450R’s design maximises your enjoyment and abilities in the saddle. The riding position has a large part to play in this, and Honda has made sure it is ergonomically sound. The seat has been placed at a height that suits riders of different sizes and the position of the handlebars and foot peg complement it. Even the placement of the brake lever has been considered for how it can improve your comfort.
The feeling of support and control is enhanced by a compact fuel tank, which keeps the bike’s profile slim. It is therefore easier to change direction as you can grip securely with your legs when maneuvering the bike around a bend.
Honda has applied an attractive red, black and white colour scheme to match the other CRF bikes in the range. The red seat includes distinctive Honda branding and in front of this is a striking CRF graphic to make other riders aware of the bike’s significance.
The model is unmistakably a member of the motocross category as its exposed engine, long swing arm and pointed mudguards prove. The twin titanium exhaust system seen at the rear hints at the model’s high performance even before you start its engine.
Once you are in traction, the Engine Mode Select enables you to alter the rate of power delivery with the touch of a button.
A generous amount of power and torque is produced by the 449cc four-stroke engine. Helping to deliver it is a five-speed close-ratio gearbox, while the revised PGM-FI fuel injection system maintains power even when tackling soft mud or sand. The new revised header is shortened, which adds more top-end power with better revving potential and more lower end torque. On rough terrain, the uprated suspension system gives greater stability to help keep you firmly in the saddle and moving forward. What is more, an innovative Honda Progressive Steering Damper (HPSD) heightens the bike’s maneuverability by making the handling more responsive and natural.
These advanced components do not make the CRF 450R a heavy bike, so it remains nimble and alert to any throttle action. Uncompromising Honda craftsmanship in every area means the machine will continue to perform at its very best for years with regular maintenance.
