Radical doesn’t begin to describe it.

In the world of 450-class MX bikes, if you stand still for a minute, you’ll get run over. If you don’t innovate, you’re yesterday’s leftovers.

Nobody leads the way in performance and technology like Honda, and the new 2013 CRF450R is Exhibit A, case closed. Its engine upgrades alone would be enough to get your attention, but they’re just the start. New frame. New air-fork front suspension. Radical new twin exhaust system. New bodywork. Even new footpegs and tires. And all this on top of exclusive innovations like our Honda Progressive Steering Damper.

No doubt about it, the new 2013 CRF450R is a real game changer. And if you’re serious about winning this game, it’s the bike you need to ride.

    • Longitudinal engine mounting improves power flow and drivetrain efficiency, and two engine counterbalancers eliminate vibration for super-smooth long-distance touring.
    • Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) delivers precise air/fuel mixture in all conditions, while dual exhaust catalyzers reduce emissions.
