LIGHTER. FASTER. AND RAZOR SHARP.
And make no mistake: the CRF450RWE (WE for Works Edition) is more than just a standard bike with some special graphics. We’ve fine-tuned it with special touches like an exclusive Yoshimura exhaust, Twin Air lter, Throttle Jockey seat cover, Hinson clutch basket and cover, premium DID DirtStar LT-X rims, a red cylinder head cover, and hands-on touches like special cylinder-head porting. The second the start gate drops, you’ll know it was worth every penny.
LIGHTER, NARROWER FRAME
Great handling starts with a superior frame, and we’ve made some big changes to our 2021 CRF450R’s chassis. First, it’s lighter—over a pound and a half lighter. By making the frame’s main spars narrower, we saved weight, but more important we made the chassis more responsive by reducing lateral rigidity 20 percent. The result is a bike that gets into, around, and out of corners faster.
NEW HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
This is huge news for the 2021 CRF450R. Made by Nissin, the hydraulic clutch performs better than third-party conversions. You get a clutchlever pull that’s ten percent lighter at its peak, even though You get a clutch-lever pull that’s ten percent lighter at its peak, even though it’s paired with a new, stronger 8-plate clutch. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about making a clutch-cable adjustment, even during the longest events.
NEW AIRBOX AND FILTER
Along with the new air fiter, the airbox shape helps deliver more torque. You can access the airbox through the left number plate. And because the new filter has no rubber gasket where it interfaces with the intake boot, cleaning and servicing the filter is faster and less messy than ever.
