When it comes to motocross, the new 2018 CRF450R is huge news this year. But in the enduro, hare scrambles, and GNCC world, there’s even bigger news: Introducing the new 2018 Honda CRF450RX, the ultimate weapon for serious off-road competitors. At its core, we’ve taken our new CRF450R and optimized it for off-road racing. And not with just some new tires or graphics. We’ve done it the Honda way—the right way. And the results are, well, electrifying.

Fast, agile and easy to ride, it’s a potent machine, with modifications that tailor it perfectly for its new cross-country/trail role and it’s equally at home slithering up a root-strewn climb, or slicing precious seconds off a racing special test.
