ENDURO CHAMPION

Enduro riders are unique—they need the performance every winner wants, but in a unique package. We hear you—and that’s why we build the Honda CRF450RX, with all the power, handling and refinement of our dominant CRF450R MX’er, but fine-tuned for enduro use. With features like a bigger fuel tank, a sidestand, an 18-inch rear wheel, and special suspension settings. Plus all the updates we’ve given our CRF450R, like Honda Selectable Torque Control, a new battery box that relocates the battery by 28mm for a lower center of gravity, new rear brake pads that last longer and improve stopping power, and even new graphics.

Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL (HSTC)

Notice that new button on the handlebar by the clutch perch? New for 2020, the CRF450RX gets our Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). You can choose from one of three settings to perfectly dial your bike in depending on how much traction is available.

ELECTRIC START

Kickstarting? Maybe if you’re riding in the vintage class, but not here. By ditching the kickstarter entirely, our engineers can make the CRF450RX lighter. Electric starters and lithium-ion batteries are so light now and so good that putting them on a bike like this is a win/win combination. And winning is what a CRF450RX is all about.

PERFORMANCE

PERFORMANCE

449cc UNICAM® ENGINE

Honda’s Unicam® cylinder heads combine the best of single- and double-overhead-cam designs. The configuration contributes to a compact engine that saves weight over a comparable dual-overhead-camshaft motor and also permits a narrow included valve angle. This flattens the combustion chamber to facilitate ignition flame propagation, allowing a high compression ratio. Since less space is taken up in the cylinder head, the camshaft sits lower in the head for a more compact engine and a lower center of gravity.

DUNLOP GEOMAX TIRES

The CRF450RX’s Dunlop Geomax tires are specially designed for enduro use. The AT81 tires are spec’d at 90/90-21 for the front and 120/90-18 for the rear. You read that right: the CRF450RX rolls on an 18-inch rear wheel.
