Honda’s mighty CRF450R is now equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control, hand-in-hand with optimisation of the PGM-FI and HRC Launch Control mapping. The suspension features revised settings, and there are also updates to the rear brake and graphics.
The Honda CRF450R has been the motocrosser to beat since its introduction 2002. It has become a byword for balance and agility, and as such has always offered its rider – whether amateur enthusiast or pro-racer – total control and the chance to get the very best from their ability. Plus, of course it’s built with the durability and longevity that Honda has long been famed for.
And of course it’s a machine that has constantly evolved, with every upgrade, large or small, drawing on lessons fed back from Honda’s racing programmes throughout the world.
For the new model, an HRC-developed cylinder head upped peak power and torque considerably, and HRC launch control was added along with revised rigidity balance for the frame and swingarm, a new front brake caliper and adjustable-position Renthal Fatbars.
But the MX pack waits for nobody, and the best machines have to get better; for 20YM the CRF450R gets a new electronics package to make it faster over a lap, yet with even more control.
This is more like a simple loan. You decide on the model and put down a deposit the same way as with PCP. We calculate for you how much you want your fixed monthly payment to be, and the term. That means you know up front how much your Honda will cost each month until it’s paid off and you own the bike.
