Yamaha WRF Rally Calon “Penakluk” Dakar Rally : though the motorcycle world were in a whirl of upheaval exceeding the much awaited instigation 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 beautiful 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 start of October, and initial impressions of the further bike were overwhelmingly positive. Its stunning!
The CRF450L Rally is sufficiently fitted out gone a plastics kit that echoes the look of the CRF250L Rally and features a fabulous looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just like full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the amassing 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower in back the headlight and predictably theres a generous smattering of carbon fibre, anodised and billet components. Its a long exaggeration from the 450 Rally that the Honda improvement riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its yet a very purposeful looking machine.
