Honda CRF450, 3 month warranty, A1 condition, on original tyres
In an effort to lose its reputation for being a more mellow 450, the 2015 model had some internal and external changes made to ramp things up a bit. At the same time, to make it easier to control for the more average of us (which far out-number the fast guys!) Honda added 3 power modes that are easily set off the button on the right side of the handlebars, for fast, faster and fastest! Without the need to plug in a power tuner or change connector plugs, its a far easier system than other bikes use.
With the torque of the bigger engine, you can ride the 450 in a lazier manner compared to a 250, which helps long term engine life as well. While the CRF250 bruised Honda's reputation for reliability a little, the 450 has always been rock solid.
If you hit a sold rock when riding, you'll find the suspension more than up to the task. While top-shelf racers may have been able to pick faults in the air forks, those of us in the real world will find them fantastic, as long as you don't go the wrong way with the myriad of adjustments available on them. Set up to steer quickly, with a factory fitted steering damper to help with high speed stability, the emphasis Honda placed on having slim lines and centralising mass makes this feel far more like a 250.
I've always liked having strong brakes, and this CRF has the best I've ever felt. Upgraded to 20mm larger, there was no need to go an oversize aftermarket unit, as this one has all the stopping power you will ever need, with the feel to match it.
We always find it hard buying off road bikes of good enough quality, as in the price range and era we normally work in, they are often worse for wear. This is the most expensive MX offering we have had in stock, but the condition of the bike speaks for itself. Still on original tyres, its in fantastic condition from top to bottom - though I will note what looks to be surface corrosion on the engine is just the result of me missing a few spots during a quick wipe-down before taking photos. If I apologise for being a little rushed, its because I just wanted to be out riding the thing!
