Sturgis Rally (A True Motorcycle Story) : even though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of upheaval exceeding the much awaited introduction 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 on the better 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 abundantly fitted out bearing in mind a plastics kit that echoes the look of the CRF250L Rally and features a astounding 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 at the rear 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 plus riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its nevertheless a completely purposeful looking machine.
