This is a full model change for the CRF450R. Nothing has been overlooked, and we have been relentless in our effort to provide customers with a machine that’s ahead of the pack. Our focus has been on producing a machine with exceptional engine performance, outstanding rear-wheel traction, and a low centre of gravity, to create a 5% improvement in acceleration over the previous model. The phrase underpinning development was “Absolute Holeshot”.
We have already started racing and perfecting the 2017 CRF450R in the Japanese MX championship, winning the first five motos in succession. We are now proud to offer a machine with this kind of performance to motocross lovers around the globe.
