2021 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
How many corners are there on your favorite motocross or Supercross track? Because each one of those leads directly from the starting gate to the winner’s circle—at least when you’re riding a redesigned 2021 Honda CRF450R or CRF450RWE. New chassis. Major engine overhaul. New suspension. New bodywork. All with the goal of letting you rail through the corners with the most precision and power you’ve ever experienced. The engine’s power delivery starts off deep down for corner drive, and just keeps building until it’s at maximum roost. Forget about clutch fade, adjustment, or hand fatigue with the new hydraulic system. And lighter than ever, the CRF450R and CRF450RWE explode out of corners when it’s time to increase your lead.
And make no mistake: the CRF450RWE (WE for Works Edition) is more than just a standard bike with some special graphics. We’ve fine-tuned it with special touches like an exclusive Yoshimura exhaust, Twin Air filter, Throttle Jockey seat cover, Hinson clutch basket and cover, premium DID DirtStar LT-X rims, a red cylinder head cover, and hands-on touches like special cylinder-head porting. The second the start gate drops, you’ll know it was worth every penny.
Features may include:HANDLING
- LIGHTER, NARROWER FRAME
Great handling starts with a superior frame, and we’ve made some big changes to our 2021 CRF450R’s chassis. First, it’s lighter—over a pound and a half lighter. By making the frame’s main spars narrower, we saved weight, but more important we made the chassis more responsive by reducing lateral rigidity 20 percent. The result is a bike that gets into, around, and out of corners faster.ENGINEERING
- NEW HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
This is huge news for the 2021 CRF450R. Out with the old cable-actuated clutch, and in with the first hydraulically actuated clutch we’ve offered outside of our works bikes. Made by Nissin, it’s the same design as in our Grand Prix MX machines, and performs better than third-party conversions. You get a clutch-lever pull that’s ten percent lighter at its peak, even though it’s paired with a new, stronger 8-plate clutch. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about making a clutch-cable adjustment, even during the longest events.CONVENIENCE
- NEW AIRBOX AND FILTER
Along with the new air filter, the airbox shape helps deliver more torque. You can access the airbox through the left number plate. And because the new filter has no rubber gasket where it interfaces with the intake boot, cleaning and servicing the filter is faster and less messy than ever.PERFORMANCE
- EXCLUSIVE WORKS EDITION
Homologated for racing and available in limited numbers, the CRF450RWE Works Edition includes all the big improvements of this year’s CRF450R plus a special hand-ported cylinder head; Hinson clutch basket and cover; Twin Air filter, Throttle Jockey graphics and seat cover; upgraded DID DirtStar LT-X rims; an exclusive Yoshimura exhaust system including a titanium header; titanium nitride-coated lower fork legs and shock shaft; revalved suspension; an RK gold chain; special ECU settings; and black triple clamps.
