Staying on top is never easy and nowhere is this more evident than in the ultra-competitive world of motocross. Sure, big steps forward may take the pressure off for a while, but it's the incremental development of these technological leaps that deliver the long-term advantage. For 2015, this cycle continues with the introduction of a mode selection button that allows choosing between different engine performance maps (Standard - Smooth – Aggressive), as well as extensive changes to the Unicam engine itself and the KYB air fork. A larger front brake disk, a redesigned rear brake disk and a number of small detail changes complete the upgrades for 2015. A look back to past technological milestones; introducing lightweight aluminum frames, the Unicam engine with its excellent mass centralization and reliable battery-less electronic fuel injection making the CRF450R easier to ride, easier to tune and yes easier to win on. Each of these innovations has undergone extensive development honing the CRF450R into the highly competitive machine that it is today.
CRF450R - ahead of the pack.
