NewRay 1/12 scale model motorcycles are highly detailed and measure approximately 6.5 inches long by 4.5 inches high by 2 inches wide. They are made of a combination of diecast metal and plastic parts. Although the box is labed as die-cast, the metal content is quite small in the actual model, it seems to be mainly on the fuel tank.
The dirt/motocross bikes don't have a kick stand but have a separate pedestal stand where they can rest and be displayed. the handle bars can steer and the wheels can spin. The back wheel has suspension. These models don’t need any assembly or painting. They are ready for display out of the box (or even inside the box). These models, as any other scale models, are fragile and not intended to be used as toys to be played with unless one is very careful (Recommended for 8 year old and older).
Branding and paint schemes are accurate. They come packaged in a window box which measures approximately 8 inches long by 5.75 inches high by 2.75 deep.
The CRF line was launched in 2000 as a successor to the Honda XR series. The full sized motocross bikes are equipped with liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engines that are available from 149 cc to 449 cc. They now have dual-sport motorcycles. The more trail friendly CRF's have simple air-cooled engines, and are available from 50 cc to 230 cc. TheHonda CRF450R was the first in the series, followed with the CRF250R in 2004. Further down the line, the CRF450X andCRF250X bikes emerged, both designed for mostly off-road use. They are considered among the best motocrossers of their class, and have been a leading seller since their introduction. The Honda CRF450R has been CycleWorlds Best Motocrosser for a record eight consecutive years from 2001-2009 in CycleWorlds 10 Best Category
