They've done it! Yep, Honda has listened to the requests from the world's trail riding enthusiasts and given us the big brother to their CRF250L - introducing the CRF450L...
So little information for now, but here's what they have to say:
"Using the CRF450R moto-crosser as a base, Honda’s new dual-purpose motorcycle has a tough, lightweight chassis built to find all the available grip, powered by an engine that delivers strong, usable power right from the bottom. While offering maximum enjoyment for the off-road hobby rider, the CRF450L is also fully street legal and street-ready, with sidestand, increased fuel tank volume and all-LED lighting. Durable, high quality parts and long service intervals – with a first major service at 19,800 miles – aim for a worry-free riding and ownership experience."
No word on when they'll arrive. Late 2018 maybe? And yes, we are excited!
