CRF450R prototype

Honda’s CRF450R prototype unveiled in Kobe

On July 5, the Honda CRF450R prototype competed at Round 5 of the All Japan Motocross Championship held at a specially established course by Kobe airport. This marked the debut of Honda’s flagship model.

The CRF450R was driven by Akira Narita who looks to capture his 11th title this year.

This all-new model has been completely remodeled with a new frame, engine, and body. All we know is that it comes with a electric starter as Honda has yet to reveal any other details and the bike is still hidden under its cover. It was covered up for the most part at the event as well.
