Honda Announces 2019 CRF Motocross, XC, Off-Road, And Dual Sport Models
- During a recent "CRF Collective" unveiling
ceremony at Fox Racing headquarters, Honda
announced its most far-reaching range of performance off-road
models ever, expanding the group by three and significantly
improving the four returning models. Leveraging the brand's
unparalleled experience in the manufacture of dirt bikes, Honda's
performance off-road lineup now includes CRF machines for riding
applications including motocross, closed-course off-road, pure
off-road, and even dual sport.
All seven models are based on the platforms
of Honda's revolutionary motocrossers, the
CRF450R and CRF250R. Those two machines return for 2019 but
with important updates, as does the closed-course off-road
CRF450RX. In addition, Honda is offering a factory-replica
version of its full-size motocrosser called the
CRF450RWE ("Works Edition"). The trail-ready CRF450X is
entirely new for 2019, and it's joined by a road-legal
CRF450L that enables customers to connect trails via asphalt.
Finally, Honda is also introducing an all-new
CRF250RX closed-course off-road machine.
"Honda's history in off-road is something we're very
proud of, from the '70s-era Elsinores, through the XRs of the '80s
and '90s, to the post-millennial CRF models," said Lee Edmunds,
American Honda's Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications.
"For 2019, it's exciting to build on that reputation with the most
expansive lineup of CRF performance off-road models ever offered,
and to reach a wide range of enthusiasts through motorcycles that
are tailored to an equally diverse spectrum of riding environments.
With this new lineup, there really is a CRF off-road performance
machine for everyone.
