Honda Australia press release:
The 2020 CRF450R and CRF250R will hit Honda dealers around the country mid-October, both offering Honda MX die-hards a host of updates to launch you even further in front of the pack.
The CRF450R will be available for an MLP of $12,299 and puts more engine-management choices at the fingertips of racers, with the addition of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). Developed through HRC’s worldwide racing effort, the system maximizes rear-tire hook-up to keep all of the Unicam® engine’s horsepower driving the bike and rider forward, improving racing success regardless of track conditions.
In keeping with racing-body regulations, the system measures rate of rpm increase and adjusts delivery accordingly and a handlebar-mounted switch enables selection from three levels of delivery, which is most in class.
In addition, the CRF450R’s front-rear balance is refined and handling is improved thanks to internal suspension updates and a new battery position that lowers the machine’s centre of gravity.
Improved rear-brake pad performance and durability, and the exclusive specification of Dunlop Geomax® MX3S tyres round out a machine that’s ready to take 450 riders to the next level.
Honda’s CRF250R is an absolute holeshot-seeking machine and this year, your lock on the holeshot is looking better than ever. That’s because the 2020 CRF250R gets a new frame and swingarm, new intake and exhaust valves, a new intake cam, new head pipes, stronger clutch springs and other improvements like the battery mounted lower for a better centre of gravity.
Air filter volume and surface area is up and that means more power too, so all of that makes an awesome bike even better. The 2020 CRF250R will be available for an MLP of $11,299.
