The new 2017 Honda CRF 450R
Honda have introduced the newly designed CRF450R for 2017 at the International Dirt Bike Show this weekend. The CRF450R has been around since 2002 but has remained so popular over the years that Honda have continuously revamped the model to include the most up to date features and specifications to provide a totally new riding experience.
So, what’s different about the 2017 version of the dirt bike?
The new model provides three riding modes through Honda’s Engine Mode Select Button (EMSB), as well as a non-compulsory electric starter which is made available as an accessory. In addition, the brand new 4-stroke single cylinder head provides the 449-cc engine with greater power than previous models, including a fresh exhaust design and five gear box which also adds to the power output.
Furthermore, when it comes to brakes, the front carries a 260mm wave pattern disc and two-piston caliper and the back a 240mm single-piston which offers efficient heat dissipation. Moreover, the 2017 model features a reformed mud guard making air flow to the radiator much more effective, along with transformed seating which provides ease of movement for the rider.
For those who are keen to learn more, Honda have set up a registration page for those interested in the new model which is available at the following link: Register your Interest for the Honda CRF450R
