CRF450X, CRF-F Trail Family ‘CARB Compliant’ for 2022

Honda continues to offer several dirt bike models that meet the California Air Resources Board’s new emissions standards for 2022 model-year and later off-highway vehicles. CARB’s updated rules eliminate new Red Sticker vehicle sales for model year 2022 and onward. Model-year 2022 and later off-highway vehicles that are not Green Sticker compliant will not be allowed to operate in California SVRAs.

“With CARB’s changing regulations, we’ve heard from a number of customers who are concerned about being able to ride their dirt bikes in California public riding areas, but many Honda models are already Green Sticker compliant,” said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Sports & Experiential at American Honda. “We’ve moved our off-road line in this direction over the past several years, enabling us to offer one of the powersports industry’s more substantial lineups of Green Sticker-compliant models. Equipping off-highway vehicles with the necessary clean-running technology isn’t always easy, but doing so is an important way of protecting the environment and keeping public riding areas beautiful.”

Announced last March, the 2022 CRF450X continues to be eligible for a Green Sticker and may be legally ridden year-round at SVRAs. Suitable for trail riding, this is also capable in competition, having amassed 14 victories in the Baja 1000, including the last six editions.

In addition, the entire CRF Trail family—the CRF50F, CRF110F, CRF125F and CRF250F—remains Green Sticker compliant. The road-legal CRF450RL may also be legally used in California SVRAs.

Honda’s lineup of Green Sticker-compliant powersports products isn’t limited to two-wheel models, as many Honda ATVs and side-by-sides can also be used year-round in California’s public off-road areas.

In December 1922, BMW chief designer Max Friz put the first full-scale BMW motorcycle on the drawing board. At its heart was a 494cc, 8.5-horsepower, air-cooled two-cylinder, four-stroke boxer engine. The first BMW motorcycle, the R 32, was unveiled in September 1923 at the German Motor Show in Berlin. Production began that same month in an area of the BMW engine works on the edge of the Munich’s Oberwiesenfeld airfield. Just 56 motorcycles were built that first year. Those humble beginnings of BMW motorcycle production launched an unprecedented success story that would span a century.
