In a presentation by Factory Honda World Motocross riders Evgeny Bobryshev and Rui Gonçalves, Honda revealed the new CRF450R and CRF250L models to the European racing media at the World Motocross Grand Prix in Uddevalla, Sweden.
The 13 year model CRF450R features a brand new, fully mass centralised chassis plus Kayaba air suspension USD front fork, and an engine retuned for more low down torque and smoother power delivery.
The all-new CRF250L, with race-inspired looks, long-travel 43mm Showa USD forks and Pro-link rear suspension, will be available in the UK in late summer 2012.
Evgeny Bobryshev, Honda World Motocross: “It was really cool to ride the new CRF450R out in California a couple of weeks ago. The new bike looks awesome and I like the way it feels – it’s really light and the balance is nice, especially in the tight turns, which is where I normally struggle the most. I felt good on this bike very quickly, as it’s fun to ride and has some really nice improvements.”
