Best Motocrosser: Honda CRF450R - Ten Best Bikes 2008

When it comes to outright moto performance, the CRF450R is at the top and has been for seven years. Shocking for such a competitive class, in which yearly updates steadily increase performance for every model. This year, the ever-refined CRF fought off the fast-paced world of technology, namely, a fuel-injected Suzuki that boasted tractable power. Still, there was no match for the strength of the proven Unicam engine that received its own tech-advancements by means of a multi-map ignition system. The chassis was also updated with new triple-clamp offset and the addition of a steering damper for precision cornering. On track, the CRF can be ridden the hardest, pulls out of corners the strongest, and its suspension is ready for anything Ma Earth can throw in its way. The CRF450R is motocross.
