Heat after heat, race after race, Honda’s CRF450R is hooking up riders like never before. If there’s ever a machine that’s given you an almost uncanny holeshot advantage, this is it. And for 2019, Honda has taken this awesome open-classer and made it even better. For starters, it’s even lighter. Then there’s an all-new chassis and swingarm, designed to work together for increased traction and cornering. The engine features longer head pipes for better throttle response and top-end pull. New fuel-injection settings spray twice per cycle to better atomize the fuel. And for the first time ever, there’s a special launch-control setting, so it’s easier than ever to grab the holeshot and hang on to your lead. We’re talking about a special ECU program here: push the button to select lauch mode, hold the throttle open, release the clutch, and the CRF450R will do the rest, launching you into the first turn with a big advantage. It turns your bike into a holeshot-seeking machine! The CRF 450R eatures Honda's Engine Mode Select Button. This simple handlebar-mounted button lets you dial in engine power delivery character with a push of your thumb. Choose between Standard, Smooth and Aggressive, depending on track conditions. The CRF450R’s Next-Gen twin spar aluminum frame positions the rear shock’s mounting point lower, opening up the airbox area and contributing to a lower center of gravity for more holeshots. The frame geometry also helps improve traction, feeling and steering precision. Grams and performance count, and the CRF450R uses a titanium fuel tank. Light and strong, it’s also thinner than our previous plastic unit, while maintaining the same capacity, freeing up more space and helping to centralize fuel mass. Honda changed the way they build the CRF450R’s swingarm this year, fine-tuning the flex to work with the new chassis and give you better rear traction and cornering precision. Also, stiffened up the CRF450R’s chassis to work better with the new swingarm. At the same time, took some rigidity out of the rear subframe, to help maintain the bike’s overall balance and feel. Honda’s Unicam cylinder heads combine the best of single- and double-overhead-cam designs. The configuration contributes to a compact engine that saves weight over a comparable dual-overhead-camshaft motor and also permits a narrow included valve angle. The CRF450R’s dual exhaust system is light, compact, and positioned close and low in the frame to take weight off the rear end and bring more mass to the bike’s center for improved handling. It also allows for more air flow, and that equals added horsepower. The new aluminum Renthal Fatbar features a new bend too. The old Honda “CR” bend was legendary for getting it right, and this new fat bar is even better. It’s the new standard of excellence—you’re gonna love it! AND, of course electric start is standard. Kickstarting your bike is so 2016. By ditching the kickstarter entirely, our engineers can make the CRF450R lighter. Electric starters and lithium-ion batteries are so light now and so good that putting them on a bike like this is a win/win combination. Winning is what a CRF450R is all about. With the all the time you’ll be spending in victory circle, you need to look your best. The 2019 CRF450R has you covered. Our “in mold” graphics look great, and stay looking good longer. Super cool looking black rims!! They may not help you go faster, but the new black DID rims this year sure look good. Prices do not reflect applicable freight, tax, and license fees.
