Post-Sale Update: After 21 bids on eBay, this Honda CRF450X sold for $4,500.
Living in Southern California, I’m almost always glad the weather is warm enough to ride all year-round. This is one of the very few times where I wish there was snow on the ground. The Honda CRF450X is already one of my favorite street-legal dual-sports, but this RadiX Snowbike conversion from 2Moto makes me absolutely giddy.
Before we go any further, it’s video time (I’d highly recommend you skip to about 2:00):
The standard bike produces 49 horsepower and weighs just over 250 pounds dry. Built to evoke the incredible CRF450 MX bike, this is almost as fast for average riders, but much easier to tame. The conversion to snowbike can take between 1-3 hours depending on your mechanical abilities, but it dramatically extends the riding season. 2013 has brought an upgrade to the conversion, which now costs about $4,700. Bonus – they’ve started racing these things now!
This specific Honda CRF450X, obviously, has the 2Moto kit. You’ll also get plenty of add-ons, including a Recluse clutch, Race Tech suspension, Scott steering damper, and a left hand rear brake…and much, much more. The seller is also throwing in a bunch of gear, as he’s dumping everything related to dirt bikes in this package.

P.S. If you love Honda’s in snow, check out the EZ90 Cub we once featured. Honda once made a variant called the EZ Snow. Find a little more information (and a nifty photo) here on RideApart. The Honda OEM product is no longer available, but there are still aftermarket versions floating around.
