Honda update the CRF450

15.05.2017

Honda have announced that there will be a number of updates to their CRF450R motocross bike.


The bike will get an electric starter as standard for the first time, which will undoubtedly help get the machine going again if it is dropped and cuts out, especially in a race situation.


The starter will be powered by a lightweight lithium ion battery, with further weight saving coming from the option to lose the kickstart lever.


The Showa front and rear suspension have also been tweaked on the updated machine this year.


The race-ready enduro model, the CRF450RX, will also benefit from a lithium ion battery too, saving 600 grams of weight from the top of the bike. 


The updates come to the bike after a ground-up redesign was introduced to the model last year which saw the model getting new chassis geometry, 49mm Showa steel-spring forks coupled with more power and torque from the 450cc single


The updated model will be available this summer. Contact your nearest Honda dealership for more information.
