The '15 CRF pulls strong off bottom with plenty of torque that works seamlessly into the mid and all the way to the top with more than enough over rev. This power allows the bike to be revved out or short shifted, so even pulling higher gears is effortless. The controlled delivery gets you out of the corner and down the straight without trying to rip your arms off. This is a huge benefit to the majority of riders. If you're not happy with the standard setting than you can change this with the Engine Mode Select Button on the bars. The extra mapping choices are more noticeable on this bike than the 250 and they do as you would expect. Mode 2 which is the smooth map calms the bike down and makes it easier to ride in slick conditions while Mode 3, the aggressive map, livens the bike up across the board. Both of these maps can also be tuned with the HRC FI Setting Tool, so if you invest in one, the tuning options are endless.^The new exhaust system gives the Honda a bit more of a throaty growl than last year out of its twin muffler. For sure it makes a commanding bark that will satisfy even those auditory riders that use sound to determine power. We're not sure many can feel the 'balance' advantage Honda claims from the dual muffler but it does bring the mass closer to the centre of the bike, even if there is more of it.^Another thing Honda is known for is shifting, and this bike is no different. The shifting is effortless and precise. Even with stronger material used for the gears, it?s unnoticeable and the CRF is still the smoothest and easiest shifting 450 out there. Only time will tell if the new material extends the life of the gears for those power shifters. The clutch pull is slightly improved with the new routing, but we wouldn't call it the lightest or easiest. Not much of an issue considering how well the bike shifts. On the plus side, it does keep the rider from over using it to reduce power.^^With up to a 3 year warranty and the most competitive finance and insurance packages available, as Australia's largest motorcycle retailer no one makes it easier to purchase a used Motorcycle.
