On Tuesday the nice folks at Honda invited us out to check out their brand new Honda CRF450RX model, which is an off road model based directly from the 450R motocross model. With a few subtle changes like electric start, off road tuned suspension, three smoother engine maps to choose from, and an 18″ rear wheel, the bike took to both the track and the trail exceptionally well! We had three-time Baja 1000 winner Mark Samuels out to shake it down, and shot some photos of him and brand ambassador Andrew Short enjoying the day on both the motocross and off road loops.
