Engine & Drivetrain
  • Power at any RPM: Powerful 4-stroke 449 cc liquid-cooled four-valve Unicam engine is designed to produce power across a wide rpm band. Unicam valve train provides the lightweight of a compact single-cam design and the optimum combustion chamber shape for maximum power.
  • Electric starter: Electric starter drives the clutch side of the crankshaft to provide superior lubrication of starter gears, and produce a narrow engine with a short, strong crankshaft.
  • Superb cold or hot starting: Lightweight, compact, internal auto decompressor system provides superb cold-starting and hot-starting operation.
  • Incredibly light weight: Unicam valve train features a carburized single camshaft that directly actuates two 35 mm titanium intake valves. The camshaft exhaust lobe actuates two 30 mm steel exhaust valves via a forked, low-friction, roller rocker-arm. Lightweight titanium intake valves permit use of smaller valve springs, reducing overall engine height. Clutch cover and cylinder head cover are made of magnesium to reduce engine weight.
  • Able to maintain high RPM: Crankshaft is made of high-strength, low-carbon steel with carburized main journals for maximum durability at sustained high-rpm operation.
  • Maintains power: Forged 12:1-compression slipper piston is lighter than a conventional design, revving quickly while maintaining excellent cylinder sealing and high-rpm power.
  • Extended engine life: Nikasil cylinder lining is lightweight and provides cooler and quieter operation for extended engine life.
  • Excellent throttle response and rideability: 40 mm Keihin FCR-type carburetor features four rollers on the flat slide, resulting in very light throttle effort, smooth operation, crisp throttle response and excellent rideability.
  • Massive torque with reduced vibrations: Gear-driven balancer reduces vibration and drives the water pump. Eight clutch plates provide the surface area necessary to handle the engine's massive torque, while carefully matched clutch springs provide a light feel at the lever.
Chassis & Suspension
  • Improved manoeuvrability & cornering control: Neatly tucked away behind the front number plate, the Honda Progressive Steering Damper (HPSD) makes a huge difference in your ability to hold the line in corners. Rebuildable, and with up to 15 clicks of adjustment, HPSD also allowed engineers to reduce steering offset and shorten wheelbase for an amazingly nimble feel. You get the best of both worlds: improved manoeuvrability, and uncanny cornering control. The aluminum frame design is matched to rider ergonomics to maximize handling and control.
  • Superb rider comfort and manoeuvrability: Semi-double-cradle twin-spar aluminum frame features a single large-diameter tapered downtube. Two rugged box-section rails attach to the base of the downtube and support the engine. A forged aluminum steering head provides a compact and extremely durable mount for the frame spars and engine downtube. In addition, tall swingarm pivot plates and narrow frame spars create a narrow overall frame cross-section for superb rider comfort and manoeuvrability.
  • Robust light-weight design: Swingarm features a dual-axis, double-taper design with a large cast-aluminum cross-member offering high strength and light weight. 18-inch rear wheel features the same lightweight rear hub and HRC works-type lightweight aluminum spoke nipples as used on CRF450R.
  • Maintains momentum & cushions impacts: Front wheel features large-diameter front axle and wide wheel-bearing span for excellent rigidity. Rear-axle diameter of 25 mm and large-diameter bearings provide optimum rigidity to withstand torturous off-road conditions.
  • Smoother ride over rugged terrain: Lightweight 47 mm inverted Showa twin-chamber cartridge fork with aluminum dampers is derived from the CRF450R and features settings unique to the CRF450X. The fork offers 315 mm (12.4 inches) of travel, 16-position rebound and 16-position compression damping adjustability. The inner surface of the front fork outer-tubes receives the same honing treatment as works bikes for low-friction operation.
  • Easier to handle: Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension system features a fully adjustable Showa rear damper and 313 mm (12.3 inches) of wheel travel, separate low-speed (13 positions) and high-speed (3.5 turns) compression damping adjusters, and 17-position rebound damping adjustment.
  • Consistent performance: Rear shock damper piston diameter is 50 mm for consistent performance under demanding riding conditions.
  • Improved turning & handling: Compact twin-piston front brake caliper, anodized aluminum brake pistons and lightweight front brake disc minimize unsprung weight for improved turning and handling. 240 mm wave-style front and rear brake rotors reduce unsprung weight.
  • Condensed design: HRC works-type rear brake system integrates the rear master cylinder and fluid reservoir, eliminating the need for a remote master cylinder reservoir and hose assembly.
Additional Features
  • Light-weight body components: All plastic body components (radiator shroud, side covers, rear fender, seat base, fuel tank, front fender, and front headlight) are designed for slim, aggressive styling and lightweight.
  • Excellent lighting: Powerful 35-watt halogen headlight produces a wide range of illumination. Integrated LED taillight in rear fender.
  • Improved comfort for rider: Rider ergonomics are optimized by adapting the handlebar, seat and footpeg height to place the rider's legs at the narrowest cross-section of the frame for improved comfort and handling.
  • Increased rider mobility: Seat cushion uses foam construction that follows the shape of the fuel tank, providing a smooth transition to increase rider mobility and comfort. Non-slip seat cover for increased rider control.
  • Light-weight ergonomic design: Rear-brake pedal and shift lever are made of lightweight aluminum and are designed to complement the riding position.
  • Excellent grip & durability: Wide, cleated, stainless steel footpegs are self-cleaning, resist corrosion, provide excellent grip and fold for extra ground clearance.
  • Reduced rider fatigue: Aluminum Renthal handlebar (971 bend) is rubber-mounted to reduce rider fatigue and improve comfort.
  • Unconventional durability: Chain guide material offers durable wear resistance, and service life is five times greater than conventional materials.
