Honda in what has become a highly competitive segment of the motorcycle market. Built in Japan but ridden the world over, the CRF450X was designed to be taken straight off the showroom floor and ridden away from the truck and into the elements – a 2.3-gallon tank provides fuel for the journey. Of course, a wide variety of mods for the CRF450X are available through a number of aftermarket companies in order to help you fine-tune this Honda to your exact liking, although some of these changes may render it a competition-only machine.
Manufactured in Japan but tempered in the fiery deserts of Baja, Honda’s off-road line is not as vast as some of its Austrian competitors, but it is significant. The CRF450X flies the off-road flag for Honda in 2005 with a host of proven strengths, most significant of which is unbelievable durability-we’re ashamed to admit the amount of abuse that we’ve dished out to a CRF450X, and yet it has kept on ticking. The 2.3-gallon fuel tank should be enough to get you out to the middle of nowhere and back on one tank. Overall, the CRF450X has a loyal fan following, and although you don’t see too many of them at off-road races anymore, the bike has huge potential.
