The new CRF450RWE 2020 Honda Powerful Dirt Bike is a limited edition model, or one can say modified edition extension of CRF450R. It has all kinds of improvements that were not present in CRF450R that makes it unique and easy to ride. A whole selection of updates makes this motorcycle a better handling and ultimate in its overall styling. It is the same motorcycle that was raced by Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen and Cole Seely that puts more engine management choices at the fingertips of racers including the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC).
It is developed through HRC’s worldwide racing effort, which is the system that maximizes the rear-tire hookup to maintain all of the Unicam engine’s horsepower that dives the bike and the rider forward. This system measures the rate of rpm increases and adjusts the delivery accordingly and the new handlebar-mounted switch enables the selection from three levels of delivery.
Additionally, the front-rear balance is refined, and handling is improved thanks to the internal suspension updates and the new battery position that lowers the machine’s gravity center. An improved rear-brake pad enhances performance and durability while the complete specification of Dunlop Geomax MX3S tires rounds out a machine that’s ready to take riders to the next level.
