Yamaha Welcomes Dakar Rally Champion Cyril Despres : even though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of to-do more than the much awaited initiation 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 abundantly fitted out in imitation of a plastics kit that echoes the see of the CRF250L Rally and features a astonishing looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just bearing in mind full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the addition 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 pretension from the 450 Rally that the Honda pro riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its yet a totally purposeful looking machine.
