Behind The Scene Honda DAKAR RALLY vol. : while the motorcycle world were in a whirl of bustle beyond the much awaited launch 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 on the augmented brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the start of October, and initial impressions of the extra bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is adequately fitted out with a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a extraordinary looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just following full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the stock 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower at the back the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long showing off from the 450 Rally that the Honda plus riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a agreed purposeful looking machine.
