    Nothing is known about it’s NZ price or availability at this stage.

    Visordown.com are claiming the new street legal CRF450L Honda will produce 25hp, not what I would have expected from a 450cc based on an enduro machine that produces upwards of 50hp.

    The full specs list is here: http://www.hondanews.com/releases/2019-honda-crf450l-specifications, and we’ve also added them to our Adventure / Dual Sport specs comparison table.

    At last they finally made a move in the right direction! Why the pathetic 7.6 litre tank though? Are they thinkin it’s gonna do 100mpg?!

    Well if it was perfect then everybody would want one and they wouldn’t be able to keep up.

    But I have to agree about the tank.
    The 250 Rally does 26km/l according to Fuelly, hard to see this doing better. (Honda claim 33km/l)
    250 has a 10l tank…this has less, seems daft doesnt it??

    Only weighs 130 kg wet though….should be good.

    saving grace for me is it will cost about three times as much as I paid for my drz400 and with me on it there would be no difference in performance!! So no point in me buying one.

    Just updated the article with what the HP is expected to be, a lot less than I would have figured.

    1 more than the 250L!! Guessing they got it strangled to achieve output/weight necessary for LAMS approval.
    Hopefully Honda will at least kickstart the other big 3 to update their
    bikes to at least the 20th century……
    Need big-tank, injected WR450,KLX450,DRZ450’s now!
