What is with the two piece side plate? The bike looks good other than that.

Add silver engine covers instead the 5 min lastings black ones....

I wonder why do they not mention battery box behind the engine?

2kg lighter...but still heavy compared to the ktm:-((

Looks like the story has been removed from the web page. Maybe it was premature release...

Interesting that they have taken the same header concept as KTM.

Honda always has a good looking machine in my opinion but this bike...Damn, it's bad ass looking !! Very anxious to hear the reviews of it.

I think people hardly notice the Honda comes stock with a skid plate and front disk guard, adding to the weight. I’m guessing DID dirt stars are heavier than stock hoops on other bikes? Weight seems to be pretty good for what you get

It’s got me thinking about another 450 for the first time in a long time

Looking very good.

They can't claim "bold new graphics" .. pretty bare-bones in that department. They most likely understand everyone puts their own stuff on anyways, so why make it more than it has to be.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Honda does a great job of producing nice looking body work that is distinct but this looks very Austrian inspired.

|

7/14/2020 7:01 AM

So sexy.

|

7/14/2020 7:13 AM

Nice looking bike!

|

7/14/2020 7:14 AM

Well, you could argue the latest ktm design was very inspired by the 09 Crf

Eh the side plates are a similar shape beyond that there dirt bikes they can only look so different. Seems to me like ktm was ahead of the curve with body styling

To me it looks similar to the 2012 CRF 450... which is a good thing IMO.

|

7/14/2020 7:34 AM

Looks like the 2009-2012 gen. Love it
