Glen Helen Raceway


Test Rider

Ultimate Motorcycling Associate Editor and Test Rider, Will Embree was invited to ride the 2023 CRF450R 50th Anniversary Edition for a track test review.

Will's role was to ride, test and write the full editorial on the bike test. Read the full report at the link above.

We went to the infamous Glen Helen Raceway to celebrate 50 years of motocross innovation. Fifty years of history flashes before my eyes as I throw a leg over this 2023 Honda CRF450R 50th Anniversary Edition motocross machine.

The pioneers of our sport persevered through air-cooled, carbureted, piston port, two-stroke motors in chassis with four inches of suspension travel. Modern dirt bike riders are spoiled with luxuries such as electric start, hydraulic clutches, engine map selections, 12+ inches of suspension travel, and smooth four-stroke powerplants. Yeah, we have come a long way since the 1973 Honda CR250M Elsinore rolled off the assembly line. Fifty years later, we put the 2023 Honda CRF450R 50th Anniversary Edition to the test.
