Honda Off-Road Range Enhanced with Two Upgraded Models and One All-New Bike
May 29, 2012 - Honda announced updates to its off-road family, extending its appeal to a broad range of ages and skill levels.
The 2013 CRF450R is a direct result of knowledge acquired by the HRC works team in the All-Japan Motocross Championship. Focused completely around the rider, it features a brand new, fully mass-centralised chassis and KYB air-sprung USD front forks. The engine has been re-tuned for more low down torque and smoother power delivery to make an open-class motocross bike that's easier to ride faster, for longer.
The championship-winning performance of the CRF250R is further upgraded with improved engine and suspension performance. The engine's response at low and mid-rpm has been boosted thanks to recalibration of the fuel injection, while the rear shock has been revised with new internals and damping rates.
The CRF110F is a brand new motorcycle aimed squarely at the 8-11 year old age range. It features a new engine - with electric starter - and chassis. With styling inspired by the 2013 CRF450R, the CRF110F also provides a valuable stepping-stone up to more competition-focused motocross and enduro machines.
