2013 Honda TRX450R

By winning races in virtually every form of ATV racing as well as racking up a string of exciting victories in the grueling Baja 1000, the Honda TRX450R has rightfully earned a place far above all others in its class. At the same time, this race-proven durability makes it a great match for recreational riders as well. So no matter what you may plan for your weekend of riding, you'll surely find the TRX450R comes out as a winner, plain and simple.

We build ATVs for lots of riders: Farmers, ranchers, hunters, explorers. But the TRX450R is built for a different kind of rider: Winners. Because the TRX450R has one mission: to get you to the finish line first.

With a race-winning heritage a mile long—including multiple Baja 1000 victories—the TRX450R offers up an ideal mix of performance, handling and power, thanks to a MX-inspired Unicam® liquid-cooled four stroke engine. Its Pro-Link® suspension offers over nine inches of plush, controlled travel. And its convenient electric starter makes for fast exits out of the pits.

Nothing separates the best from the rest like racing does. And when the checkered flag drops, Honda's TRX450R built its reputation on being the best.

Honda's sport ATVs are designed to take on the most challenging terrain the world has to offer. No matter whether you're just starting out or an experienced pro, there's a Trax that's just right for you. With a full range of cutting edge technology, including electric start, independent suspensions and even shaft drive.


2013 Honda TRX450R Key Features

New for 2013

- New retro-inspired Special Edition Tri-Color joins new Red color.

Important Safety Information
For highly experienced riders only; no operator under age 16. Honda recommends that all ATV riders take a training course and read their owner's manual thoroughly.

The Power to Win.

The TRX450R's Unicam® engine design has been proven a winner on MX and Offroad racing circuits alike. Refined, powerful, reliable and light, it also offers excellent controllability and power delivery.

Refined Suspension.

You can't win if your ATV doesn't stay hooked up. That’s why the TRX450R's Pro-Link® rear suspension features a Showa® piggyback shock that's fully adjustable to rider preference and provides a full 9.3 inches of travel.

Easy Starting.

Because the TRX450R is equipped with an effortless electric starter, getting going is a snap, whether you’re coming out of the pits, re-starting on challenging terrain, or just loading up at the end of the day.


2013 Honda TRX450R Features and Benefits

Dual Front Disc Brakes - 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.

MX-Proven Suspension and Chassis - 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.

Twin-Sump Lubrication - 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.

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

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

Handy, Dependable Electric Starter - lectric-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.
