Product Release

2011 Honda CRF450R on it’s way

Posted:

Honda has substantially improved on one of the most successful motocross machines on the market, the blood-pumping CRF450R.

Honda's top off road competition bike includes a number of upgrades including new suspension, improved steering damper (HPSD), redesigned fuel pump and exhaust system, and improvements to the fuel injection system.

The CRF450R's rear suspension has been given a new linkage to help with handling and tracking, and a more balanced suspension performance, whilst the fully adjustable Pro-Link rear suspension sports an exclusive KYB integrated reservoir, and a large rear shock damper for improved suspension action under the toughest riding conditions.

The Kayaba front suspension features a sophisticated inverted Air-Oil Separated (AOS) system with an exclusive Honda 48mm-diameter fork, and adjustability for rebound and compression damping. The new settings are matched up to the new rear suspension.

Honda has also taken the revolutionary HPSD and made it even better by giving it a bigger 24mm piston for less distortion over braking bumps. Ultimately, the rider gets more damping when needed, offering confident high speed stability, secure cornering and less rider fatigue.

The CRF450R was Honda's first MX bike fitted with fuel injection, and it's always been the standard in the class. For 2011 it has been given a new throttle body and new ECU programming for crisper throttle control and even easier starting. The result is fluid power and drivability while reducing noise output.

To conform to FIM testing methods, the CRF450R also has a new exhaust system fitted that works in conjunction with the airbox and new FI settings.

Of course, knowing that it's a Honda, means each bike comes complete with all the standard-setting quality and reliability for which the manufacturer is world renowned.

The CRF450R will be available from Dealers nationally in late November.
