footage shot at press-day from Honda at Hondatrack in Olmen (Belgium) with MX1 Belgian Championship pilot Maarten Govaert.
Honda Crf 450cc & 250cc
the new engines of honda were presented at the Honda park in Olmen circuit.
at first glance there not as much on the bikes changed but it's appearance.
however enough in the technical field is changed and the new models will stand out in appearance and performance.
Some examples are:
1-a reduced-size (diameter) chain roller (from 38 to 34 mm) so that the suspension has more freedom to move
2-larger footrests for greater stability and the custom Kickstarter
3-Unicam engine block with new mapping and custom ignition-settings
4-line Pro-link for more traction and stability cycle part
5-new damping settings for suspension (from 4.6 to 4.8 N/MM
5-unique progressive steering damper for stable cornering
exclusive 6-48 mm Kayaba fork (450cc) 250cc (Showa updide-down suspension)
7-reinforced outside legs of the fork
8-new induction hardened crankshaft (lifetime and reliability increase)
9-New throttle body with smaller bore (improved capabilities issue and, as well as links the low and middle area
10-completely revamped cylinder head with changed channels and new exhaust valves
Test pilot Maarten Govaert has driven and was very impressed with both of which had an excellent especially the 250cc improved ability at the bottom.
stabel cornering was all the more facilitated by the Steering damper.and enough power, and 450cc as agile, both similar to the 250cc
all in all, a nice day!
