Honda’s CRF450X has long been the choice of Baja champions and woods pros—and riders who want the light weight and awesome power of a premium MX bike, but who also know that while MX machines are perfect for 30-minute motos, out in the big, bad, open-class real world you need a machine that can do more. That all-around excellent performance is what’s made the CRF450X always stand out, whether it’s in the winner’s circle at the MX Nationals or out on your local trails. And for this year, the CRF450X has been completely overhauled from the ground up- with lots of new upgrades, including an all-new aluminium frame and . . . wait for it . . . a six-speed transmission!
