Last week Honda offered the media its first chance to check out the two new red motocross 450s for 2019. The 2019 CRF450R may look similar to the 2018 model, but an all-new frame is designed to improve the handling of the bike. The CRF450R Works Edition is a new concept for Honda, taking the existing CRF450R and adding a variety of trick parts to improve performance--and, of course, looks. The Works Edition features such trick stuff as coated forks and a Yoshimura exhaust system.
Are the changes to the 2019 CRF450R noticeable? Is the Works Edition worth a little extra cash? David Pingree swung his leg over each bike and provides his first full run down on the new Hondas right here.
