At this point in the game, Honda’s CRF450R simply rules motocross. 2007 marks the sixth-in-a-row victory for the CRF in the Best MX category–it has won every year since its introduction. In the past few years, Honda’s 450 moto-bike has fought off all-new models from Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha and KTM. Though the competition gets stiffer, refinements keep the CRF ahead of the game. This year, minor headwork and a larger carburetor gave the 450 more and smoother power–just enough to keep the edge over the others. We used to wonder when the mighty Honda would be dethroned; now we’re starting to think the CRF is merely building speed for a decade of wins. It gets better every year.
