We changed up the Honda CRF450X in a big way last year, and right out of the gate it went out and won the Baja 1000. And not just the motorcycle class either—it roosted on those million-dollar trophy trucks too. But that's hardly a surprise, given how good this bike is for the serious off-road racer. For 2020 we freshened up the look a bit, but the hardware is still everything you want. Awesome motor. Wide-ratio six-speed gearbox. Aluminum chassis. Electric starter. And long-travel suspension designed for the desert, the woods, and everywhere in between.

    Key Features
    • Wide-Ratio Six-Speed Transmission: Having six speeds in the CRF450X's transmission compared to an MX bike's typical five gives you more choice, and makes this versatile bike even more versatile. You have a gear for everything from east-coast rock crawling to wide-open Baja blasts.
    • Electric Starter: An electric start system ensures trouble-free starting in all conditions. The electric starter also drives the clutch side of the crankshaft to provide superior lubrication to starter gears while producing a narrow engine with a short, strong crank.
    • 449cc Unicam Engine: Honda's Unicam cylinder heads combine the best of single- and double-overhead-cam designs. The configuration contributes to a compact engine that saves weight over a comparable dual-overhead-camshaft motor and also permits a narrow included valve angle. This flattens the combustion chamber to facilitate ignition flame propagation, allowing a high compression ratio. Since less space is taken up in the cylinder head, the camshaft sits lower in the head for a more compact engine and a lower center of gravity.
    • Twin-Spar Chassis: The CRF450X uses a twin-spar aluminum chassis that takes advantage of all the lessons we've learned on the MX track and from winning countless Bajas. The frame is both light and stiff, and provides the basis for the CRF450X's excellent handling. The chassis is also wider than the standard MX frame to accommodate the six-speed transmission.
