The 2012 Honda CRF450X has won the world-renowned and ultra-rugged Baja 1000 and Baja 500 races multiple times-enough to rightfully earn its reputation as the King of Baja. But even if you're planning a weekend of relaxed trail riding rather than aiming for a prestigious off-road racing victory, the Honda CRF450X offers equally impressive credentials for a weekend of fun rides.
But the Honda CRF450X, is merely a sum of its parts intelligently engineered parts taken from its MX-winning cousin and specially tuned for the trail. Like the Honda Progressive Steering Damper that helps reduce rider fatigue and improve cornering. An electric starter for easy start-ups in even the worst conditions. A Pro-Link suspension, bulletproof Unicam® engine and the kind of durability Honda is known for. Put it all together and you’ve got perhaps the best off-roader ever built!.
