Dirt Bike Magazine tests the 2022 Honda CRF450R at Glen Helen Raceway. The 2021 Honda was all new but unfinished. There were mapping and suspension concerns last year that the Dirt Bike Magazine staff had qualms with. For 2022, the bike is complete with the problematic areas addressed. Honda has a full set of good running maps and the suspension has been tailored to better suit the chassis. This bike got last in our 2021 450 MX Shootout because of the areas that needed to be improved. With the Honda all finished up it is a different motorcycle and we’re excited to see where it lands in our 2022 Dirt Bike Magazine 450 Shootout.
