Honda unveils the 2014 CRF450 Dakar Rally model

Recommended Posts

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.

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.
