Honda CRF L | First Impressions : though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of ruckus more 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 slip in a rather lovely and arguably more adventure-ready concept bike. The Honda CRF450L Rally is based upon the greater than before 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 thoroughly fitted out bearing in mind a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a extraordinary looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just bearing in mind full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the store 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 quirk from the 450 Rally that the Honda improvement riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a completely purposeful looking machine.
