The wait is over. The dual-purpose motorcycle you’ve been dreaming of for so long is here. The CRF450L excels both off-road and on and is built to go your distance. Now in stock at Robspeed Honda. It looks like only a small number of these are bound for the UK over the next twelve months so don't miss out.
The CRF450L looks like the CRF450R for a reason. It is a CRF450R. Same aluminium beam frame, 449cc Unicam engine and Showa suspension. We’ve turned it into a total trail machine with more bottom-end torque, a six-speed gearbox, full road legality and sharp LED lighting package. And it’s manufactured with the high-quality engineering Honda is famous for.
Riding off-road throws up a wide variety of conditions. To make the CRF450L’s engine more usable–with strong, smooth torque to hunt out every last scrap of rear wheel traction– we gave it 13% more crank inertia plus revised valve timing. Because if you’re spinning a rear wheel you’re not going anywhere.
The CRF450L’s electric-start, 449cc four-valve Unicam engine delivers a smooth spread of torque from low rpm up, helping the rear tyre hook up no matter the ground conditions. Developed in conjunction with the CRF450RX enduro machine it uniquely features a heavier crank mass and compression ratio of 12.0:1. The piston uses 3 rings for long-term durability and the ACG has been uprated to provide electrical power for the lights and maintain battery charge during lower-speed running.
Honda is legendary for its engineering ability and high build quality. The CRF450L was designed from the outset to have an air/oil filter change every 1,000km, with a major overhaul only required at 32,000km intervals.
A tuned rigidity balance between the CRF450L’s aluminium frame and swingarm provides strength, stability and also feel. The 49mm Showa USD fork and Pro-Link rear suspension are fully adjustable with spring and damping rates specifically revised for use on the trail. An 18-inch rear wheel–with cush drive to protect the gearbox and chain–opens up tyre choice while the 260mm wave-pattern front disc and twin-piston calliper, matched by a 140mm rear disc and single-piston calliper serve up sensitive, but powerful stopping ability.
