2004 Honda CRF450R
Honda shaved grams off everything from the piston to the fork guards and ended up with a machine three pounds lighter than last year’s 235-lb. CRF.
The Honda CRF450R is currently the four-stroke MX class leader and it has been retooled for 2004, is it still the top machine in the open class?
Honda upgrades its CRF450R with an engine power mode switch and highly adjustable second generation air fork from KYB. We give it an initial shakedown in this report.
