2017 Honda CRF450X Features and Benefits

Having won the world-renowned and ultra-rugged Baja 1000 and Baja 500 races multiple times—enough to rightfully earn its reputation as the King of Baja—the CRF450X boasts some pretty impressive credentials in the world of off-road racing. At the same time, if you're planning a weekend of relaxed trail riding rather than aiming for a prestigious off-road racing victory, the CRF450X offers equally impressive credentials for a weekend of fun rides. So the choice is really up to you; no matter how seriously or how relaxed you want to approach your weekend ride, the CRF450X is more than up to the task.


  • Powerful four-stroke 449cc liquid-cooled four-valve Unicam® engine is designed to produce power across a wide rpm-band for easy-to-control operation.
  • Forged 12.0:1-compression slipper piston is lighter than a conventional design, revving quickly while maintaining excellent cylinder sealing and high-rpm power.
  • 40mm Keihin FCR-type carburetor features four rollers on the flat slide, resulting in light throttle effort, smooth operation, crisp throttle response and excellent rideability.
  • Carburetor features a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) to help maintain linear throttle response throughout the rpm range.
  • Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil and permits the use of a smaller oil pump.
  • Exhaust system uses a lightweight stainless-steel exhaust header and muffler equipped with USDA-qualified spark arrester.
  • T-ring-sealed chain is approximately 1.6mm narrower and is stronger compared with conventional chains.
