CRF RALLY NEW COLOUR : though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of bustle on top of 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 slip in a rather pretty and arguably more adventure-ready concept bike. The Honda CRF450L Rally is based on the bigger brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the begin of October, and initial impressions of the additional bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is adequately fitted out afterward a plastics kit that echoes the look of the CRF250L Rally and features a fantastic looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just similar to full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the collection 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower behind the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long artifice from the 450 Rally that the Honda benefit riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a entirely purposeful looking machine.
