Salisbury Byways – GreenLaning in April on a WRR : even if the motorcycle world were in a whirl of protest greater than 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 slip in a rather pretty and arguably more adventure-ready concept bike. The Honda CRF450L Rally is based on the enlarged brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the begin of October, and initial impressions of the further bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is thoroughly fitted out taking into consideration a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a astonishing looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just later full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the accretion 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower at the rear the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long mannerism from the 450 Rally that the Honda plus riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its nevertheless a completely purposeful looking machine.
