Will we get it here in Oz? Good to see Honda coming up with something new. Have recently been trying to google the 2017 CRF motocrosser, without luck; then bang, they hit us with an off road version.
Why is Honda so behind the other manufactures with releasing their MX bikes? Haven't bought a new bike since the 90s, but always loved the time of year when new bikes were released!

There are pics of the 17 CRF out there, but details are another week away I'm told. Looks the same, but smaller tank I think

Spring forks. Electric start (option on R) looks pretty good. Combined lubrication system (engine/gearbox) I like having separate engine oil and gearbox oil. Wonder if there is a new CRF450X ENDURO version in the pipeline not just the RX off road one?

Back in the day the Japs lead the way in the motocross and off road market. They seem to have gone to sleep leaving the euro's to take over the market.
