2006 Honda CRF® 450R
The Tractor!By (I am an Owner) on Sep 18, 2008
This thing is a monster!! Bought it back in May of 2006 and my first weekend with it was in the backwoods of VT. There was not a bike or quad with us that could keep up. It is comfortable climbing steep grades, over rocks, through mud, in the trees. It is unstoppable. With its low end grunt, as well ... as a healthy top end, the power is usable in almost scenario. Maintenance is relatively easy if you are slightly mechanically inclined. Checking the valve train can be performed quickly and easily, and fluid swaps are a breeze.
I found the suspension set up almost perfect for my weight (160 lbs) providing plenty of traction when I needed it as well as the ability to loft the front end to avoid obstacles.
The 2006 CRF450R is a brute, and is an absolute blast to ride.
