Best Motocrosser: Honda CRF450R - Ten Best Bikes 2005

Man, the CRF just keeps rewriting the rules for motocross bikes. Sit on one and you’ll feel right at home; ride one and you’ll be writing home. Now in its fourth year, it’s got a quartet of Ten Besties on its resume, which means the 450 is batting 1.000. Last year we wondered how the CRF could possibly get any better. Honda answered with a new frame and redesigned intake, improving overall handling and engine performance. It blows our minds that a bike can be so perfect right off the showroom floor. Will there ever be another motocrosser this superior?
