MXA VIDEO: TESTING THE $12,399 2022 HONDA CRF450 WORKS EDITION
MXA VIDEO: WE TEST THE $12,399 2022 HONDA CRF450 WORKS EDITION
We took the 2022 Honda CRF450 Works Edition to Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Southern California to break it in and shoot this video, then we put it through the regular MXA testing protocols by racing it and throwing a wide variety of testers on the new steed. For 2022, this bike is loaded with goodies like factory hand porting in the cylinder head, new suspension settings with Titanium Nitride coatings on the fork legs and shock shaft, a full Yoshimura RS-12 exhaust system, Hinson clutch basket, updated ECU settings, race inspired graphics, and more. Many of the parts on the 2022 CF450WE are the same as last year, but this time the suspension and ECU settings have been updated to work with this model, instead of just mimicking the stock bike.
