Bike of the Year—and More.

Multi-time Baja 500 and 1000 winner. Dirt Rider's "Bike of the Year." Lauded by experts as arguably the best big-bore trailbike ever. Simply put, The CRF450X is the king of 450-class off-road machines, and features like the revolutionary Honda Progressive Steering Damper and works-style brake discs are a big reason why.

  • Honda Progressive Steering Damper

  • 449cc Unicam® Engine

  • Works-Style Front and Rear Brakes

    • Compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized-aluminum brake pistons and lightweight new 240mm new front disc increases stopping power while minimizing unsprung weight for improved turning and handling.
    • HRC works-type rear brake system adds a new 240mm brake rotor to its integrated rear master-cylinder and fluid reservoir, a set-up that eliminates the separate reservoir and hose.
