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 biggest news this year? The CRF450R’s 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.
