Yamaha YZF Rally bike – Fans Verhoeven, Dakar – : while the motorcycle world were in a whirl of ruckus over the much awaited commencement 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 augmented brother of the 250L the CRF450L which was launched at the begin of October, and initial impressions of the extra 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 fabulous looking underslung Termignoni exhaust system just taking into consideration full-on rally bikes. The fuel tank is much larger than the store 450L , theres a sexy looking instrument and navigation tower behind 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 benefit riders use for the likes of the Dakar, but its nevertheless a enormously purposeful looking machine.
