2020 Honda® CRF450R Follow no one but yourself Features may include: ENGINEERING New for 2020 Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC): The 2020 CRF450R now features Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), designed to improve the stability and traction while maintaining throttle position. With 3 settings to chose from you can have your bike dialed, no matter how much traction there is. Total Air Management By lowering the battery box position by 28 mm, not only has it lowered the centre of gravity but also allowed for a 9% increase in the size of the air filter. This allows for more responsive handling overall and improved airflow from intake to exhaust. Improved Stability The CRF450R features the Honda Selectable Torque Control that is designed to improve stability and traction while maintaining throttle position. Just another feature that makes your ride smoother and more controlled. Total Air Management By lowering the battery box position by 28.5 mm, the air filter size has been increased by 9% for improved air flow and total air management, efficiently managing the air flow through the intake, the head, and out the exhaust. HRC Launch Control We’re talking about a special ECU program here: push the button to select the mode, hold the throttle open, release the clutch, and the CRF450R will do the rest, launching you into the first turn with a big advantage. It turns your bike into a holeshot-seeking machine! PERFORMANCE 450 cc 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. Downdraft Fuel Injection The CRF450R features a downdraft intake tract and FI body to help increase both power and fuel-metering precision. It’s part of the reason the CRF450R offers such explosive power and massive torque, especially out of the starting gate and in the critical first 30 meters (100 ft) of the race to the first turn. COMFORT & HANDLING New Renthal® Fatbar® The aluminum Renthal® Fatbar® pushes the boundaries of riding excellence with its unmatched bend. Flat Seat/Tank Junction The CRF450R features a flat seat/tank junction, including a titanium fuel tank. The superior ergonomics make it easier to move forward and back on the bike, increasing your control.
