We have all had that thought in our heads:
“I wish there was a way to put this engine in that frame, the bike would handle like a dream and with all that power I would be unstoppable !”
Well John Murray actually did it. What you’re looking at is two of the most popular platforms in the motocross industry blended together. A 2023 Honda CRF450R chassis with 2023 KTM 300SX two stroke fuel injected engine slammed into it.
John Murray owns a construction company back east and loves to ride dirt bikes. He was the mastermind behind the build and actually has a couple that he rides all the time! This wasn’t built in a factory garage or engineered by some of the high end builders we’ve worked with in the past. John Murray thought outside the box and utilized the resources available to him. An at home build that impressed the heck out of Dirt Bike Magazine!
