2014 Honda TRX450R

Posted on by  

With its agile stance, aerodynamic body and grippy tires, the Honda TRX450R is a fast beast on four wheels that can deal effortless with any type of track.

The ATV is built around a 450cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that cranks out more than enough power to deal tackle any terrain with poise. The engine is kept in leash by a five speed transmission and is brought to life by an electric starter. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the TRX450R comes with a CRF-derived Unicam valve train that features a lightweight, compact single-cam drive and optimum combustion-chamber shape for maximum power at all engine rpm.

The stopping power is assured by front dual hydraulic 174mm Discs With Twin-Piston Calipers and a rear single hydraulic 190mm Disc With Single-Piston Caliper.

The ATV weighs only 388 Pounds and is powered by a 2.7 Gallons fuel tank (including 0.8-gallon reserve).

The Honda TRX450R is offered with a base price of $7,799 and comes with one year warranty.

2014 Honda TRX450R Features and Benefits:

Honda TRX450R

Handy, Dependable Electric Starter

Electric-start system features an electric starter that drives the clutch side of the crankshaft, providing superior lubrication of starter gears while producing a narrow engine with a short, strong crankshaft. Handlebar—mounted, push-button electric start system—the ultimate in convenience and reliability.

MX-Proven Suspension and Chassis

Honda TRX450R

The TRX450R front suspension features independent double-wishbone with Showa® shocks, with adjustable spring-preload, rebound and compression-damping and 8.4 inches travel. In the rear, the Pro-Link® suspension connects to the swingarm via a progressive linkage and features a fully adjustable Showa® piggyback shock, providing 9.3 inches of travel.

Dual Front Disc Brakes

Honda TRX450R

Dual 174mm front disc brakes with twin-piston calipers and high-pressure front brake lines provide excellent stopping power. Aluminum brake calipers and brackets front and rear reduce weight.

Unicam® Cylinder Head Design

Honda TRX450R

CRF®-derived Unicam valve train features a lightweight, compact single-cam drive and optimum combustion-chamber shape for maximum power at all engine rpm.

Nikasil Cylinder Lining

Honda TRX450R

High-performance Nikasil cylinder lining is plated directly to the aluminum cylinder wall. It’s tough, smooth, lightweight and provides cooler and quieter operation for extended engine life and higher engine performance.

Twin-Sump Lubrication

Honda TRX450R

Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a cool supply of oil to the clutch, eliminates clutch and transmission material contamination to the engine oil and reduces the amount of circulating oil and the required size of the oil pump.

High-Performance Flat-Slide Carburetor

Honda TRX450R

40mm Keihin FCR-type carburetor features flat-slide construction with four rollers. This results in very light throttle effort, smooth operation, crisp throttle response and excellent rideability.

Rear Disc Brake with Aluminum Caliper

Honda TRX450R

190mm rear disc and beefy single-piston caliper provide improved stopping power. Aluminum brake calipers and brackets front and rear reduce weight.
