It’s a dream everyone had, but nobody could deliver on—until Honda invented the CRF450X. The light weight and power of a motocross bike, available to trail riders, Baja demons, and cross-country racers everywhere. But actually the CRF450X is a whole lot better than just an MX bike off the track. It gets a ton of specialized touches and refinements that hone it for the trail.
Honda engineers fine-tuned everything from the steering geometry, suspension, and power delivery to better suit off-road riding. Additional extras like the Honda Progressive Steering Damper make it a bike you’ll appreciate for a lot longer than just a 20-minute moto: It not only helps reduce rider fatigue but also improves the CRF450X’s cornering. And then there’s the CRF450X’s Honda Unicam® engine—tough enough to survive Baja, it can easily survive one of your weekend rides. Best of all, the CRF450X features both an electric starter and a kickstarter, so you get both convenience and supreme reliability—exactly the traits, along with performance, that make the CRF450X the machine of choice for cross-country riders everywhere.
