New Honda CRFL Rally Debut at EICMA : while the motorcycle world were in a whirl of ruckus higher than the much awaited start 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 bigger brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the start of October, and initial impressions of the supplementary bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is abundantly fitted out past a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a wonderful looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just following full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the accrual 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 showing off from the 450 Rally that the Honda lead riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a very purposeful looking machine.
