Nothing Can Match Honda Technology.

Motocross bikes are showcases of technology--there's no arguing that. But the big trophy in that showcase is Honda's CRF450R. Because it's increasingly obvious to everyone that an open-class MX machine has to be more than just about raw power--it has to be about how you get that power to hook up, and how rideable your machine is. And that's where nobody can come close to Honda. The CRF450R’s introduced a new Engine Mode Select button--but that's just the start. Check out everything else the CRF450R has to offer, and you'll see why it's the number-one choice of riders who want to know what winning feels like.
