Small Changes On Honda’s 2010 CRF450R Offer Big Results

October 1 2009 - The Honda CRF450R continues to dominate in off road racing disciplines such as Supercross, motocross, desert, and endurance racing due to its light weight and effortless manoeuvrability.

For 2010, Honda has tweaked a number of small, yet significant workings to keep their premier motocross machine performing ahead of the competition.

Modifications to the engine and suspension systems have allowed Honda’s engineers to achieve even better balance and control, offering every rider a blast of winning performance.

Those improvements include new ECU programming and fuel injection settings to improve off-on throttle response when exiting corners, ultimately providing better control.

The CRF450R also features a new engine auto decompressor system which enables easier kick starting, as well as a new front fork oil seal, oil quantity and valving, each of which contribute to overall improved feel.

The rear damper features a redesigned piston and compression adjuster to provide for a smoother ride and stronger acceleration over rugged terrain.

Further improvements include the addition of two attachment tabs for the air filter to offer secure installation, plus a new connecting system for the HRC fuel injection setting tool, eliminating the need to remove the fuel tank.

With a relatively long swingarm, low centre of gravity and wide rear tyre, the CRF450R offers a highly controlled feel and makes confident, accurate jumping and manoeuvring achievable for all riders.

Its slim frame features rounded lower parts for extra ground clearance, whilst the revolutionary ergonomic design creates an open, comfortable ride position.

All of these features make for a highly accessible motocross machine, suitable for a wide range of riders, regardless if the competition is personal or professional.

Honda’s new CRF450R is available in Dealers nationally now.
