2018 HONDA CRF450 MOTOCROSS
The big news about the 2018 Honda CRF450, which was a brand-new design last year,
is that Honda has added an electric starter. The electric starter was previously offered as
an add-on accessory, but is now standard equipment. Additionally, a lightweight lithium-ion
battery is included. Other notable changes to the 2018 CRF450 include updated suspension
valving, revised ECU mapping and removal of the kickstarter.
Claimed weight is 248 pounds (with a full tank of fuel). The claimed weight of the 2017
CRF450 was 243 pounds, which means that the 2018 model gained 5 pounds with the addition of the electric starter and battery. Weighed without fuel in the tank, the 2018 Honda
will hit the scales at 238 pounds. The retail price will be $9149 (up $300 from last year).
