Honda unveils the 2014 CRF450 Dakar Rally model

This bike looks REALLY nice! I wonder if they will make a street model?

I would say ... NO .... the Rally is a hole different breed of machine.  

 

Did I see a Scotts damper towards the end ....  :thinking:

 

I love me some HRC ...  :banana:

I hope Honda soon realizes that a street version of the CRF450 would sell well.  I know it would take some sales away from the XR650L, but that bike needs to be upgraded anyway.  :ride:

What I want to know is how does a rider see anything at night? Those 2 lights look great but they are BEHIND the windshield. Even if the windshield is spotless it is going to reflect back at the rider like, well, a lot. When the windshield gets a bit dirty or wet you would be better off with and LED taped to your forehead. I am hoping I am missing something obvious.

O damn!! Like like like. What's with the street fighter style exhaust pipe placement?

Its a Dakar model so the side number plates are really gas tanks which is why the exhaust runs down low.

I like it!

Me too.  :thumbsup:

That is a fine looking piece of working art... :thumbsup:   I need to win the lottery...... :ride:

Should be good for at least top 10 finish next year! Lots going on with that bike. Thrash ready!

Even though I like this bike, it is too heavy for my requirements.

I would rather see a good dual purpose bike from Honda that weighs no more than 280 pounds.

 And 350cc's too :thumbsup::ride:

With about 32hp at the wheel and a nice smooth torque curve.

That would be a bloody nice bike.
