THE ULTIMATE ENDURO WEAPON

Honda’s CRF450R is a dominant open-class MX machine. And the equivalent for all you enduro riders: the 2019 CRF450RX. It has all the features and upgrades of our latest CRF450R, but has some special touches that fine-tune it for enduro use. Like a bigger fuel tank. A sidestand. An 18-inch rear wheel. And special suspension settings. Along with the CRF450R, it gets an all-new chassis and swingarm, new fuel-injection settings that spray twice per cycle to better atomize the fuel, a special launch-control setting, new Renthal Fatbar and all the rest. We’ve never built an enduro bike this race-ready. And neither has anyone else.

HRC LAUNCH CONTROL

We’re talking about a special ECU program here: push the button to select the mode, hold the throttle open, release the clutch, and the CRF450RX will do the rest, launching you into the first turn with a big advantage. It turns your bike into a holeshot-seeking machine!

ELECTRIC START

Kickstarting your bike is so 2016. 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

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.
