All New 2017 Honda CRF450R Breaks Cover
The all new 2017 Honda CRF450R officially broke cover today with images and information on the new red race weapons released around the world.

Honda Australia have released the below information today with a basic overview of what we can expect when the bike hits Australian shores, though exact timing of its arrival in Australia and the specific model options we will recive are yet to be confirmed.

he 2017 Honda CRF450R; it looks different, feels different and delivers a whole new rider experiance - in plain and simple terms it‰Ûªs faster, much faster.

The CRF450R has defined the art of balance, with an engine that produces hard-hitting usable power in a race-ready package since 2002.

It‰Ûªs always been a machine that offers total control, together with the durability and longevity that Honda is long famed for.

The 2017 model is reimagined, it‰Ûªs the firståʉÛ÷from the ground-up‰Ûª redesign of the CRF450R for eight years and packs aåÊpowered-up HRC designed engineåÊwith an 11%åÊoverallåÊpower boost and stronger torque right through the rev range.

It gets an all-new seventh generation aluminium frame with new chassis geometry, lower centre of gravity and a titanium fuel tank making it lighter and more compact.

The new CRF450R is fitted with factory driven 49mm Showa USD coil spring front forks, developed from a version supplied to MX race teams. They are everything one would expect from effectively race-spec suspension, the out of the crate fork action is supple, smooth and fully in control.

For the very first time, an electric-start kit is available on the CRF450R. Kit specification and local availability will be announced later.

The body is more compact with aerodynamically-efficient plastics with feature film insert graphics for optimum scratch resistance and a bolder effect.

Large Project Leader (LPL) for the 2017 CRF450R, Mr M. Uchiyama described the new model as a complete change from previous models, "Nothing has been overlooked and we have been relentless in our effort to provide customers with a machine that's ahead of the pack" he said.

Direct input from Honda's MX GP and AMA teams highlighted the need to develop a race partner with the unoquivical need to be first out of the gate, first into turn 1 and to punch out a blistering lap time.

Honda have taken this literally with the design inspiration completely underpinned by creating a machine that is the 'Absolute Holeshot.'

Mr Uchiyama talked of the central focus on 'producing a new model with execptional engine performance, engine power, low centre of gravity and to offer outstanding rear wheel traction' all in the one package.

"We are proud to give a machine with this kind of performance to motocross lovers worldwide." He added.

It's a lot to take in; a complete redesign and geometric rework that's resulted in a stronger, lighter, sharper, faster machine... Christmas might arrive that little bit earlier this year.
