Honda to bring CRF450RX to Australia for 2017 | Latest

Due to high demand, Honda Motorcycles Australia has announced that it will bring the cross-country orientated CRF450RX into Australia.

After the anticipated Australian unveiling of the CRF450R at the Moto Expo in Melbourne, MX fans around Australia were in a frenzy and many had one burning question on their lips; “What about the CRF450RX?”

Originally made for the AMA in the United States, this race spec bike was destined to by-pass Australia, with only the CRF450R being made available. In a bid to please Honda fans, Honda Motorcycles Australia has been able to secure the RX model as well for delivery in March next year.

The 2017 CRF450RX is based on the all-new 2017 CRF450R but with some slight tweaks; including enduro-spec suspension, PGM-FI and EMSB mapping plus a larger fuel tank, an 18-inch rear wheel, sidestand and electric start will be standard. This model will be Honda’s first completely new 450cc moto-crosser in eight years and can be picked up for $12,698 Ready to Ride.

Much like the CRF450R 17YM, the CRF450RX has been built from the wheels up and with direct input from AMA and European MX teams it is sure to impress.
