ADV Pulse : even if the motorcycle world were in a whirl of activity greater than the much awaited commencement of the production versions of the Yamaha T7 Tenere and the KTM 790 Adventure at the EICMA show, Honda used the occasion to fall in a rather beautiful and arguably more adventure-ready concept bike. The Honda CRF450L Rally is based upon the augmented brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the begin of October, and initial impressions of the new bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is abundantly fitted out similar to a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a astounding looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just in the same way as full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the store 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower in back the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long exaggeration from the 450 Rally that the Honda pro riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a definitely purposeful looking machine.
