Dakar Rally Motorcycles (part ) : though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of bustle on top of the much awaited inauguration 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 lovely and arguably more adventure-ready concept bike. The Honda CRF450L Rally is based upon the better brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the begin of October, and initial impressions of the extra bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is fully fitted out later than a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a fantastic looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just subsequently full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the stock 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower astern the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long habit from the 450 Rally that the Honda plus riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its nevertheless a totally purposeful looking machine.
