Honda presents new 2019 CRF line-up at the MXGP of the Netherlands

Unveiled during the MXGP of Netherlands recently were the 2019 Honda CRF450L and CRF250RX, along with the updated Honda CRF enduro motorcycle range. Emphasising reliability and ease-of-use in the dual-purpose role, the CRF450L takes the CRF450R moto­crosser as its basis.

Fully street legal and coming with a side stand, the CRF450L has a larger fuel tank for extended range, LED lighting and a single-cylinder mill tuned for bottom end power. Of note is the CRF450L’s first service interval of 32,000 km.

The other new ‘crosser for Honda is the CRF250RX, using the CRF250R as a starting point and intended for closed-course cross-country riding. Like the CRF450L, the CRF250RX comes with an 18-inch rear wheel, 8.5-­litre fuel tank and three-level launch control from HRC.

Siblings to the CRF450L, the CRF450R and CRF450RX, now come with three-level HRC launch control and Renthal Fat Bar handlebar that sits on a four-way adjustable yoke. The CRF450R gets a 2.5 hp and 2 Nm boost in power and torque, thanks to a revised cylinder head, intake and exhaust.

Updated for 2019, the Honda CRF250R gets a power bump in the bottom end through the use of a 2 mm smaller diameter throttle body and revised cam, intake and exhaust profiles. The CRF250R also gets three-level HRC Launch Control in addition to the three ride modes along with a new two-­piston front brake calliper, adjustable Renthal Fatbars and black rims.
