2023 Honda® CRF450RX
DIALED FROM THE START
It’s every dirt rider’s dream: a bike with the power, light weight, and crisp handling of a factory motorcrosser, but with the fine tuning that makes it perfect for rides outside the track. And hey, it’s our dream too—which is why we build the CRF450RX. With all the updates of the 2023 CRF450R we’ve given it the magic touches that turn it into the perfect off-road enduro ride. In fact, things that make our 2023 CRF450R even better—like more low- and midrange torque—really take the RX to the next level. Other RX differences? Our Honda Selectable Torque Control lets you maximize available traction under different conditions. A lightweight chassis, 18-inch rear wheel, hydraulic clutch and special suspension settings help you take on varied terrain. And then there’s the big feature nobody can touch: our reputation for quality and reliability. You’ll be laughing—and riding—the next time your riding buddy tells you how he had to hike out ten miles in his motocross boots. Tell him he shoulda picked a Honda CRF450RX!
Features may include:
- LIGHT, NARROWER FRAME
Great handling starts with a superior frame. The CRF450RX’s chassis was designed to be narrow, lightweight, and more responsive thanks to reduced lateral rigidity. The result is a bike that gets into, around, and out of corners faster.
- HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
The CRF450RX includes the first hydraulically actuated clutch we’ve offered outside of our works bikes. Made by Nissin, it’s the same design as in our Grand Prix MX machines, and performs better than third-party conversions. You get a clutch-lever pull that’s ten percent lighter at its peak, even though it’s paired with a stronger clutch. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about making a clutch-cable adjustment, even during the longest events.
- AIRBOX AND FILTER
The air filter and airbox shape are designed to help deliver more torque. You can access the airbox through the left number plate. And because the filter has no rubber gasket where it interfaces with the intake boot, cleaning and servicing the filter is faster and less messy than ever.
- DUNLOP GEOMAX AT81 TIRES
The CRF450RX’s Dunlop Geomax tires are specially designed for Enduro use. You read that right: the CRF450RX rolls on an 18-inch rear wheel.
