Honda riders will recognize the multifunction engine kill switch, map selector, and MIL light. Adjacent to that switch is another push button switch that controls the three levels of HSTC. So, if you’re keeping count, that is three map options with the HSTC off. Turn on the HSTC and now you have three more settings per map, which makes for an additional nine settings. With that, you have a potential of 12 different settings for the ECU available on the handlebar. But that’s not all of it. The CRF450R also has three launch control modes to help you get the “Absolute Holeshot.” Oh, and did I mention that the maps also change based on information from a shift sensor that tells the ECU what gear you’re in?
