2021 HONDA CRF450 FIRST RIDE VIDEO: IT’S FINALLY HERE
The 2021 Honda CRF450 is by and far the most highly anticipated bike of the 2021 season. The MXA Wrecking Crew has been critical of the Honda CRF450 over the last few years and we’re excited to see that they’ve spent oodles of R&D money and time to address these issues. The 2021 model comes with an all-new frame, new swing arm, new subframe, updated engine, new hydraulic clutch, new Showa suspension, new body work and more. MXA’s Assistant Editor, Josh Mosiman spent all day with Honda shaking down the new bike and comparing it back-to-back with the 2020 Honda CRF450 to compile this First Ride video. As always, the opinion spoken in this video is only what we thought about this bike after day one and really we’re looking forward to putting the 2021 Honda CRF450 up against our new KTM, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki 450s for Motocross Action Magazine’s 2021 450 Shootout.
