Sportmachine Rally dos Sertões – Parte : though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of upheaval higher than the much awaited opening 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 augmented 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 sufficiently fitted out taking into consideration 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 heap 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower at the back 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 pro riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its still a no question purposeful looking machine.
