Honda Motorcycles Australia are now able to access the CRF450RX to bring into the country.
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 RX?”
Originally made for the AMA in the United States, this race spec bike was destined to by-pass Australia and only the CRF450R would be made available.
In a bid to please Honda fans, Honda Motorcycles Australia have 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.
