Off-Road Motorcycle Reviews
Dirtbikes (also trail bikes) are off-road motorcycles that are lightweight and feature rugged suspension and knobby tires to get traction off the pavement. MX stands for motocross, the sport of all-terrain racing on outdoor circuits. Motocross is a contraction of motorcycle and cross country. The long-travel suspension on MX bikes enables incredible speed over even harsh off-road conditions and massive triple-jumps. Supercross is a variation of motocross that is raced on indoor or stadium circuits. SX got its name from an original event in Los Angeles during the 1970s that was called the Superbowl of Motocross.
Some significant updates for Honda’s top-class MX’er.
The changes Yamaha made help the YZ450F live up to its true potential.
Even though it didn’t get a huge power boost for 2015, the Suzuki RM-Z450 is still substantially better than the 2014 model.
Honda’s CRF250R returns in 2015 with key revisions that make it even more adjustable than before.
Yamaha came about as close as a manufacturer can to setting the motocross world on fire with the YZ250F in 2014.
What better place is there to test the electric Zero FX’s off-road chops than in the backyard of AMA Hall-of-Famer Scot Harden?
After spending two days trashing the Yamaha YZ250F around, we can confirm that it is a special motorcycle.
Suzuki’s RM-Z450 returns largely unchanged for 2014, with only new radiator shrouds and a reprogrammed ECU.
Suzuki has always been known for their excellent cornering abilities and in 2014 they are right on the money.
The WR450F combines YZ motocross-style power in a lightweight, 250F-derived chassis with awesome handling.
It didn’t take but a few hours of riding to realize just how well the 450X maintains Honda’s legacy of producing great off-road machines.
Our favorite dirt bike of 2013 is the same one that seems to find the top step of the podium every week in Supercross and Motocross.
With an all-new motor and chassis layout the 2014 YZ250F represents the pinnacle of Yamaha
Good ol’ family fun is the focus behind the CRF line of trail bikes from Honda.
