2022 Honda CRF450X Ride Review / Specs | NEW 2022 Honda CRF 450 Dirt Bike / Motorcycle Buyer's Guide!

Do you want the best Honda dirt bike for everything from tight trails to soft sands and everything in between and paired up with a wide-ratio transmission? And you want a headlight on this CRF too? Check out the 2022 CRF450X that makes its return this year!

The 2022 CRF450X isn’t cheap though and not everyone needs a $10,000 dirt bike if they just want to hit the trails with something a little more “basic”. Needless to say, if you don’t need this type of dirt bike and you just want something to lightly hit the trails – I wouldn’t buy the CRF450X! I would save about half the money and buy something like the CRF250F if you’re just wanting something tame, a dirt bike with low maintenance and relatively cheap – considering. But, if you want the best of the best in what Honda has to offer for 2022 CRF dirt bikes for the trails with a headlight – this is it! Now, let’s go over some of the info on the 2022 CRF450X and see if it’s something you might be interested in buying. Disclaimer: If you’re a new reader, I normally like to provide more nitty-gritty details about a bike but Honda hasn’t released hardly any real R&D info behind this motorcycle like they do many others so we’re a little more limited than I would like to be.

CRF450X Introduction

2022 Honda CRF450X Review / Specs | NEW 2022 Honda CRF 450 Dirt Bike / Motorcycle Buyer's Guide!

“Legendary.” “Dominant.” “Unbeatable.” In discussions of motorcycle racing in Baja, those are just some of the suitable adjectives for the CRF450X, which earned Honda’s record 30th Baja 1000 victory last November, at the hands of SLR Honda riders Mark Samuels, Justin Morgan and Justin Jones. Fourteen of those wins have come aboard the CRF450X, firmly establishing it as the ultimate desert-racing weapon, but it’s also a great trail machine, thanks in part to its 50-state year-round off-road-legal status, plus off-road appropriate features like a side stand, 18-inch rear wheel, headlight, sealed chain and six-speed transmission.
