Adding a steering stabilizer to an enduro bike is something most off-roaders do right after purchase. Honda simply eliminated the chore by adding its very own Progressive Steering Damper to the 2008 CRF450X. Of course, that alone was not enough to turn the always-close-contending X into a CW Ten Best-winner. The X received new steering geometry and a slimmer profile that enhances rider control. The now-nimble chassis complements the lively motor, turning the X into a refined off-road tool. It rips in the desert, shreds through the trees and can even be raced in tough off-road events, proven by winning the latest Baja 1000. A bike that truly does it all off-road.
