Honda CMX450 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
38 HP at 410 lbs wet weight. Parallel twin engine.
Sounds like cheap fun, a little faster than the 250R.
Maybe as a temporary beater transition bike.
I would still steer you to the Suzuki SV650 for a permanent
and lasting upgrade.
Bikes: 2011 Honda CBR250RA, 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in
Add lean angle or power, never both = highside
Remember practice makes permanent
