Total control and superb handling for the expert Enduro rider.

Like its motocross cousin, the CRF450RX has been developed straight from AMA and European MX1 teams. The result is an improved power-to-weight ratio that makes the bike easier to ride over distance. It also comes with EMSB (Engine Mode Select Button) – three modes that you can adjust to suit the ride and the track. You’ll feel completely at one with the bike, as it delivers high levels of feedback, stability and traction.

Suspension and Handling

Suspension and Handling

A fully adjustable Showa rear shock is mounted low and on the centre-line of the machine for optimal mass centralisation. Up front, the fully adjustable 49mm Showa USD fork action is compliant and supple to suit general offroad riding; a combination that provides “factory” race-spec suspension.

Precise handling

Electric Start

Stuck on a closed course, trying to kick-start an engine, is not the best practice when you’re against the clock. If for some reason you stall the engine on a difficult section, this feature is essential to get you back on pace as soon as possible.

Honda progressive

Short Exhaust

The flow-out of gases is more efficient through the twin exhausts, which themselves have been redesigned with gradual radius bends. The twin mufflers are 78mm shorter, saving weight and improving performance.

Progressive braking

Better for the Long Run

To save weight and increase the fuel capacity at the same time – particularly useful for the Enduro rider – the tank has been completely redesigned from scratch and manufactured from a tough, lightweight plastic.
