MXA’S WEEKEND NEWS ROUND-UP: NO NATIONAL MOTOCROSS THIS WEEK, WHICH MEANS NBC WON’T MISS ANY PASSES

• NITRO RALLYCROSS WILL BE AT GLEN HELEN ON NOVEMBER 20-21

Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Rallycross (NRC) is set to expand in a big way, announcing a full championship series comprising five races in 2021. In 2022, NRX will go even bigger with a 10-stop global championship with races in North America, Europe and the Middle East. The new championship will also feature a revolutionary electric vehicle supercar class, which will be introduced in 2022.

Travis Pastrana said, “Since day one, I have truly believed that Nitro Rallycross has the potential to be the most exciting motorsports series on the planet. When we built the first NRX course in Utah we knew we had something special — from the drivers’ genuine smiles to the astonished fans as cars flew side-by-side over 100-foot jumps. Now, as we get ready for the next chapter of NRX, I’m more convinced than ever that this will bring top drivers from all disciplines to challenge themselves as their teams push the envelope in vehicle development. It’s going to be a hell of a ride and this is only the beginning.”

• TORROT E-KIDS ELECTRIC MINICYCLES TO COME TO THE USA

Central Powersports Distribution (CPD) will be the new distributor for Torrot eKids Electric Minicycles and Muvi Electric Scooters in the USA.

You may remember the name “Torrot” from back in 2015 when the Spanish electric bike company purchased GasGas. Then in 2019, KTM bought Black Toro Capital, which owned both GasGas and Torrot, but all KTM wanted was GasGas Motorcycles. Torrot remained an independent company and continued to produce bicycles and electric scooters and motorcycles. Now, Torrot Electric Europa has agreed to enter the American market by making Central Powersports Distribution (CPD) the distributor of Torrot eKids Electric Minicycles and Muvi Electric Scooters in the USA. CPD’s connection to GasGas coninues as CPD is the distributor of Reiju Motorcycles, which purchased the previous GasGas models and renamed them Riejus). CPD also ditributes SWM’s line of dual-sport bikes and Electric Motion trials bikes.

“Torrot is a long-established manufacturer of two-wheel solutions with over 60 years history in the business. CPD is exactly the high-quality local representative that Torrot aims to work with. We see a great future for business growth in the US and believe CPD is the right partner to help us achieve success in the US market,” said John Dixon, new CEO of Torrot explained.

Mark Berg of CPD“We are very excited about this partnership to bring these high-quality Electric Motorcycles back to the US dealer network and consumer,” commented Mark Berg of CPD. “We have all seen an extensive growth in popularity over the past couple of years for Electric Kids’ Motorcycles and even Electric Mobility product. Our previous experience with Torrot will be very beneficial, with the team, knowledge, and history already in place here in the USA.”

This means it’s now possible to have multiple batteries, with one being used to power your Little Ripper’s adventure while the other is charging. Manufactured from LiMnCo, these new batteries offer lower weight and greater power and range than previous versions.T orrot Kid’s models use high-quality, motorcycle-specific components; not adapted bicycle parts used for the brakes or suspension.

The motor is mounted in the same traditional location as a gas-powered motorcycle, which offers better balance and handling than swingarm-mounted designs. All Torrot Kid’s models are Bluetooth-enabled for wireless control that allows parents to limit, configure, and even stop their child’s motorcycle remotely from their smartphone.

MXA PHOTO OF THE WEEK: WHAT THE PAST LOOKED LIKE

REM racers Randel Fout and Dan Alamangos dug through boxes of old gear in the MXA warehouse and found Jody Weisel’s 1982 HRP H-Back pants (with the kidney belt built-in) and 100% cotton jersey and Dean Cates’ JT Racing Team Tamm gear (with boot gaiters). They decided that they wanted to see what motocross gear felt like in the 1980s, so them went to a race a Glen Helen and raced in the antique gear.

Randel and Dan raced one moto each, but switched back to their modern gear because they could not breathe in the old gear sizes.

What did they think after racing in 39-year-old gear? They couldn’t believe that the pants were size 32. They were very tight with almost no adjustment in the belt line. It turns out that a couple decades ago the fashion world changed their sizing by putting size 32 labels in size 34 pants. It made everyone from housewives to motocross racers feel better about themselves. These two racers can wear size 30 or size 32 modern gear, but barely fit into size 32 pants from the 1980s.

• 2021 WORLD VET CHAMPIONSHIP IS COMING ON NOVEMBER 6-7

The Dubya World Vet Motocross Championship is getting closer. How close? 134 days away. That may seem like a long time away, but World Vet regulars know that time flies when you have to arranged to get to the biggest Vet motocross race in the world. Not only is it the biggest, but it is the oldest. The World Vet was in founded in 1984 when three of SoCal’s best-known Vet racers decided that there ought to be a race just for riders over 30 years old. Tom White, White Brothers Cycles Specialties owner; Alan Olson, the winningest Over-30 rider in SoCal history; and Jody Weisel, MXA editor and the then CMC number-one Vet Pro, agreed. Tom White threw the weight and money of the White Brothers into promoting the race and the rest is history. Although Tom passed away on the eve of the 2017 World Vet race, his daughter Kristin and son-in-law John Anderson keep the family tradition alive by having their Dubya USA wheel company sponsored the World Vet Championship.

This is the second turn at last year’s 2020 World Vet Championship. It is three-lanes wide and the climb doesn’t stop for another 200 feet.

• BRIEF HISTORY OF THE 2021 HONDA GLITCHES

The 2021 CRF450. MXA has been vocal about the substandard EFI mapping that came on the 2021 Honda CRF450. Everyone thought that the 2021 Honda was going to bring Honda back to its glory days of the 2005 to 2008 CRF450s. The 2021 Honda had sex appeal. It was hard not to just sit and stare at it without drooling. Riders were dropping their hard-earned cash for pre-orders based solely on looks. It is no secret that first-year models are prone to have some bugs that need to be worked out, but buyers seemed to be mesmerized by Honda’s promise.

What happened? When we first rode the 2021 CRF450 and CRF450WE, the engines didn’t run clean due to erratic mapping. The standard Map 1 in both bikes was the best option but still had issues. Maps 2 and 3 popped, spit, flamed out and sputtered. It was a minor error on Honda’s part, but it cost them big time. We say minor, because not every rider suffered the mapping issues, and, if you look past the mapping issue, this is a great engine. Mapping can be tricky. For example, if Honda Japan used different fuel, altitude, air temperature and tracks than the USA, that could produce different test results on American terra firma. We have a feeling Honda knew about the issue, but didn’t listen to its test riders and pushed it through.

We expected Honda to fix the mapping glitch with a dealer bulletin right after the 2021 bikes were released, but Honda didn’t react right away. MXA needed better maps on our CRF450, so we dialed up Jamie Ellis at Twisted Development to fix the problem. The next day he had maps for us to try, and they produced a broader powerband. We still hoped that Honda would help fix its loyal customers’ bikes, but as the months passed, we lost hope. Way back in our January 2021 issue, we said this: “Unless Honda steps up to the plate to help 2021 Honda CRF450 buyers, buyers will be on their own to find solutions to the most obvious problems.”

The 2022 Honda CRF450 will come with the correct maps installed and get forks and shocks with firmer damping rates.

Honda’s answer. Honda did eventually send out a dealer bulletin, but did it in such a way that few 2021 Honda owners knew about it. Honda and your dealer failed you. Honda had updated maps and the willingness to reflash your bike’s stock ECU at no charge at the dealer level, but we have to wonder why Honda delayed so long in telling the media or sending out a press  release about the availability of updated ECM software for the ECU rewrite procedure. It is no cost for a CRF450 owner to have his dealer reflash his ECU, because Honda will reimburse the dealer for 0.2 hours of time.

Can you do it yourself? Even if you have a Honda tuning tool, you won’t be able to do the update yourself. For one, Honda hasn’t provided an update to the Honda Tuning tool since 2017. And two, Honda makes its dealers use Honda’s proprietary MCS (Motorcycle Communication System) diagnostic tool to flash the ECU, which takes less than 5 minutes of time, as the dealer just hooks up the MCS tool and connects it to the CRF450 data port to download.

What to do. If you have  a 2021 CRF450R, RX or WE and after had your dealer update your maps, contact your local dealer and ask if they can update your ECU. If they are unsure what you are talking about, tell them to check the Honda Techline bulletins for the information you are requesting. If they give you a hard time, call the Honda Powersports customer service line toll-free at (866) 784-1870. Take our word for it, it isn’t worth riding the stock mapping first; the update is lightyears better (especially on the CRF450 Works Edition).

Outcome. What Honda did is to change the base map (Map 1), which in turn changes the other two maps automatically; however, there were some parameters that were accessed to fine-tune Maps 2 and 3. The bottom line is that if the base map changes, all the maps are changed along with it. We were able to test the CRF450 and CRF450 Works Edition ECUs back to back with both the old and updated flashed maps. Once they were flashed with the Honda update, the bikes ran as they should but had a different character than before the reflash.

The CRF450’s Map 1 (standard map) had massive power off the crack of the throttle. It was a lot to deal with at first, but test riders realized they could ride a gear higher, which made the map our favorite on both bikes. As for the “Works Edition,” Map 1 wasn’t as powerful. It was smooth and easy to manage. The majority of test riders preferred Map 2, which is supposed to be the smooth map, although it offered an increase of power off the crack of the throttle and was more playful. The power was there if you needed it, but it wasn’t as strong as Map 1 on the standard model. Map 3, the aggressive map, was more powerful on top but was much like Map 1 off the bottom—very trackable and easy to ride but with no excitement.The 2022 Honda CRF450 will also benefit from mapping and suspension updates.

The 2022 CRF450. The 2022 Honda CRF450 release is just around the corner, but it should be noted that the 2022 Honda CRF450 is the 2021 Honda CRF450, right down to the graphics. However, the 2022 CRF450 will come with the updated mapping. Additionally, the 2022 forks will get a revalve to the low-speed shim stack and firmer settings on both compression and rebound. The rear shock will get a total revalve for firmer settings on the rear.

MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: POLISPORT HAMMER HANDGUARDS

We’ve all been there in a race or on practice day when we’ve absolutely obliterated our knuckles from roost or branches on a tree. And some days we wished we had just a little more protection for our precious digits. That’s when handguards come in. Now handguards may not be the most popular amongst many riders, but already this 2021 Pro Motocross season, we’ve seen big names like Ken Roczen, Adam Cianciarulo, and Zach Osborne putting a little plastic in between their fingers and golf ball-sized rocks.

Polisport Hammer handguards are one-point-mounted, motocross-style guards that are built to keep your hands safe on the track. The large plastic guards ensure optimal protection for hands and master cylinders. The Hammer handguards fit on standard handlebars with external diameters ranging from 0.87-1.02 inches and also fit TwinWall and Fatbar setups.” —Polisport’s Helder Tavares.
