The Ultimate Weapon
When it comes to motocross, our new 2017 CRF450R is huge news this year. But in the enduro, hare scrambles, and GNCC world, there’s even bigger news: Introducing the new 2017 Honda CRF450RX, the ultimate weapon for serious off-road competitors. At its core, we’ve taken our new CRF450R and optimized it for off-road racing. And not with just some new tires or graphics. We’ve done it the Honda way—the right way. And the results are, well, electrifying.

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK
New Dual-Muffler Exhaust System - The CRF450RX’s dual exhaust system is compact and positioned closer and lower in the frame’s center to take weight off the rear end and bring more mass to the bike’s center for superior handling.
New Aluminum Frame - Our twin spar aluminum frame positions the rear shock’s mounting point low, opening up the airbox area and contributing to a lower center of gravity. The frame geometry also helps give you more traction, and that means more holeshots!
18-Inch Rear Wheel - An 18-inch rear wheel is another indication of the CRF450RX’s off-road heritage
Electric and Kick Start - Talk about the best of both worlds: The new 2017 CRF450RX comes with both a kick and electric starting system as standard equipment.
260mm Front Brake - The CRF450RX’s large front-brake disc measures a whopping 260mm. You get great brake feel and a wave pattern that cuts down on weight.
Skid Plate - A factory skid plate is light and offers the engine and lower-frame protection that a motocross racer demands.
Stopping for fuel in a race costs time. With the CRF450RX’s 2.2-gallon fuel tank, depending on the course and how much roost you’re making everyone else eat, it’s possible to make it through a three-hour enduro with just one fuel stop.
