2014 Honda CRF450R
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Riders and industry folk alike raved about the 2013 CRF®450R. And , we’ve given them even more to love. For 2014, there’s new intake and exhaust ports, a new Dual-Timing PGM-FI fuel injection setup, and redesigned muffler internals to boost torque output and increase throttle response.
The CRF®450R is designed for the way riders ride today. There’s more whipping. More scrubbing. So we built a bike that takes weight off the bike’s ends, and concentrates mass towards the bike’s center. The first thing you’ll notice is our revolutionary air fork. It’s nearly two pounds lighter than a conventional coil-spring fork, taking weight off the front. And now with improved oil flow, this year the fork is even more responsive, delivering even better handling. And new clutch springs to enhance lever feel.
The CRF®450R also sports a compact dual exhaust, tucked closely to the frame to further enhance mass centralization. And with better exhaust flow, we’ve even managed to increase horsepower. There’s also our next-generation aluminum chassis, designed to help lower the center of gravity. All in all, the 2014 CRF®450R takes the best and lightest bike in its class and makes it even better. And, in doing so, plants it firmly ahead of the pack.Innovations
- New Air-Fork Front Suspension
The air fork made waves in 2013. And we’ve made it even better this year. It’s a 48mm inverted KYB PSF (Pneumatic Spring Fork), easily adjustable with a simple air pump. And now with improved oil flow, it’s even more responsive, keeping your front tire planted for better tracking through turns and across whoops.
- Works-Style Brakes
The 2014 CRF®450R sports front and rear disc brakes with factory-spec master cylinders, and new rotor covers. You can wind down fast into turns, and get around the lap quicker.
- New Cylinderhead Porting
New intake- and exhaust-port shapes work in conjunction with the new fuel-injection timing to give increased power and torque at partial throttle settings and more overrev, better suiting the CRF®450R’s power delivery for most riders.
- Next-Generation Aluminum Frame
Linking the front air fork and rear twin pipes is our Next-Gen twin spar aluminum chassis. The front spars are lower to work with the new fork. The subframe improves mass centralization. And overall, the bike has a lower center of gravity, so you get better steering feedback, suspension action and chassis stiffness and compliance.
- Fuel Injection PGM-FI
The settings on the CRF®450Rs Programmed Fuel Injection improve low- and mid-range performance, and help deliver smooth, predictable engine performance. And with our HRC® Fuel Injection Setting Tool, it’s easily adjustable to specific track conditions.
The CRF®450R’s swingarm is specially designed to work with the updated rear suspension and Next-Gen chassis, delivering improved stability, traction and rider feedback.
By moving the CRF®450R’s twin pipes lower and closer to the bike’s center, the subframe needn’t support a long, extended exhaust. That means the subframe can be lighter overall. And with a wide opening at the top, it’s even easier to change the air filter.
- Short Twin-Muffler Exhaust System
The dual exhaust on the 2014 CRF®450R is compact and positioned closer and lower to the frame’s center. This reduces weight off the rear, bringing more mass to the bike’s center for improved “whipability.” And with by improving exhaust flow, we’ve increased overall horsepower.
