WHERE DOES IT WORK BEST?
Properly modified, the Honda can
win at any type of racing, but its stock
configuration favors cross-country
competition. Ridden for fun, the 450R
is a rocket on tight woods trails, and
it’s an excellent dune machine too.
HOW ARE THE BRAKES?
Fully race-worthy. The power and
excellent feel of its great brakes are
almost as much of a treat as using
the 450R’s awesome engine. The
Honda’s brakes haul the machine down
from speed on fourth-gear straights
effortlessly and have the fine control
you need on wet, greasy woods trails.
HOW ABOUT RELIABILITY?
Stock or heavily modified, the
Honda 450 has proven to be a very
solid machine. Because it’s a high-revving racing model, you should
check the oil level and change
oil more often than you would on
less highly tuned trail quads.
HOW ARE THE DETAILS?
Among racing 450s, the Honda
WHAT IS OUR FINAL ANSWER?
has the most spacious, comfortable
ergonomics. You won’t find a quick-
adjust clutch perch or aluminum
handlebars like on the Yamaha
YFZ450R. The parking brake lock
works, but it’s not as easy to use
as what you’ll find on other 450s.
Honda’s TRX450R is by far the
most affordable way to get your hands
on a high-performance 450. It’s as
competitive a platform as anything out
there, but it’s not as well-equipped
as its competition from Yamaha and
Can-Am. If you’re looking for a 450
to build your way for racing or to have
fun with for recreational riding, the
Honda offers too much to pass up. ❏
The Honda’s power and
handling provide serious fun
for dune and trail riding.
