2024 CRF450R

Fresh off the top step of the 2023 AMA Supercross podium courtesy of Chase Sexton’s championship and currently dominating the premier class in Pro Motocross competition with Jett Lawrence, Honda’s CRF450R platform continues to offer elite-level motocross performance for the 2024 model year.

Known for its agile character, the CRF450R is exceptional at effortlessly changing lines and making short work of the tightest corners. The 449.8cc Unicam engine produces robust power throughout the rev range, while the 44mm throttle body ensures smooth delivery, even at low speeds.

Premium Showa® suspension offers a balanced ride and confidence-inspiring composure over the most challenging terrain. Proven at the highest level of the sport by Team Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton and Jett Lawrence, the CRF450R is the ultimate weapon for taking on the demands of modern motocross.

2024 CRF450RWE

The CRF450WE (Works Edition) was designed and engineered with the singular focus of winning races and championships. In 2023, it accomplished that mission at the hands of Sexton, winning six races en route to the 450SX championship.

This special-edition version takes the CRF450R platform to the next level with a long list of upgrades that have been tested and proven on the Team Honda HRC factory race machines. Such upgrades include a hand-ported cylinder head, premium DID DirtStar LT-X rims, Yoshimura exhaust system, Kashima and titanium oxide coated lower fork legs, Hinson clutch basket and cover, RK gold chain, special ECU settings, Throttle Jockey gripper seat, a HRC decal package, Twin Air filter plus more.

The knowledge gained from countless test days, top-qualifier positions, race wins and championships has been poured into the CRF450RWE, and the result is a potent combination of efficient, useable power and surgically precise handling. The 2024 CRF450WE will be available from September.

2024 CRF450R-S

For riders who prioritize value and performance, Honda’s CRF450R-S delivers both in spades. Based on the 2022 CRF450R, this model maintains the holeshot-inducing power and razor-sharp cornering that Honda’s flagship motocrosser is known for, but at a value-oriented price point. 

While it spares the advancements applied for the 2023 and 2024 model years, the CRF450R-S is a testament to Honda’s commitment to producing motorcycles that are incredibly capable and reliable without breaking the bank.

2024 CRF250R

The results speak for themselves: Since the introduction of the current platform, Honda’s CRF250R has risen above the competition both indoors and out. Most recently, Team Honda HRC’s Hunter Lawrence captured the 2023 250 Supercross East Region Championship in convincing fashion, while his brother Jett was equally dominant en route to the West Region crown. 

 In addition to its racing success, the CRF250R has gained a well-deserved reputation for its exceptional handling, excellent ergonomics, strong acceleration and rock-solid durability. From local racers lining up for the first time to those chasing the top step of the Supercross podium, the CRF250R possesses the ingredients necessary for success on the track.
