First Look: RedMoto Honda CRF400RX

Based on the CRF450RX, Italian's RedMoto Honda have released details of their Enduro CRF400RX which is due for release in 2018.

Announced during last week's ISDE in France, the Enduro CRF400RX is a sleeved-down version of their all ready available Enduro CRF450RX, as raced by Giacomo Redondi in the world championships.

The intention of the model, say RedMoto, is to produce a more user friendly enduro bike for hobby and amateur riders a like, while still offering plenty of power when needed.

The new CRF400RX Enduro is the intermediate displacement that allows riders to comfortably enjoy an enduro weekend without too much fatigue manageable in the toughest situations while increasing driving pleasure.

The CRF 400RX Enduro nevertheless renounces the power, while maintaining the speed and handling capabilities of the older sister, the CRF 450RX from which it derives.

The 413 cc CRF400RX Enduro engine compression ratio is 13.0: 1 and the bore and stroke dimensions are 92 x 62.1 mm.

The Enduro CRF400RX is equipped with a 5-speed gearbox. The final drive is 13:51.

The Honda Engine Engine Mode Select Button (EMSB) allows the rider to choose between three mapping setting.

Map 1 is the most aggressive and suitable for attacking the fastest sections where great responsiveness is required. Map 2, offers a softer, sweeter response to assist slippery, muddy trails. Map 3, supersoft, is more specific to extreme riding.

The Showa suspension is exactly identical to those of Enduro CRF450RX, calibrated specific for enduro.

In addition, the rear wheel is 18 "and the standard equipment includes a larger tank of 7.3 litres, electric starter, side stand and homologation.

Pricing to be confirmed.

Availability in early 2018.

I'd say it will be adr approved as it's the X (enduro) model.

I don't think the RX models are ADR yet Chris. And even if they were, this bike might be sufficiently different to require having to be ADR'ed on it's own Possibly it'll only be of interest to VIC riders who can get Rec Rego

Ah ok, point taken. I figured it would be the same as the X given the specs and the 18" rear.

Redmoto are Euro based, this bike will never see Australian shores unless there is someone who brings it in as a sole import.

I don't think we'll see an ADR'd RX either. They weren't even going to bring them into the country originally. They aren't a pretty enduro conversion either, they look thick through the tank shroud area and hold the extra fuel capacity all up top. No where near as well done as the KTM XC(F)'s, Husky XC models or the YZ FX's etc.
