Alessandro Lupino's Assomotor/Honda Red Moto CRF450R - Vital MX Pit Bits: 2016 MXGP of USA - Motocross Pictures - Vital MX

Out of HRC Honda's second US truck was the Assomotor/Honda Red Moto team, which has Italy's Allesandro Lupino and Japan's Kei Yamamoto representing. 

These CRF450Rs were adorned with a few Italian brands we don't see too often. Although we've seen many carbon parts from CMT (not to be confused with CRM), we hadn't laid our eyes on these carbon fiber radiator braces and mounts before.

Oddly enough, they do use CRM for their carbon fiber fuel tanks. These we also don't see as often on Hondas, as their US, Japan, and GP factory teams all use a tank that's sourced from Martin Technologies.

KYB has a strong presence throughout the GP paddock, and has a great support system for teams through Technical Touch.

Albeit oil coolers are nothing new in motocross, every time we see a version we haven't before, we drool a bit...

Being that the team is based from Italy, most of the aftermarket parts are Italian brands, such as the Spark exhaust systems.

We spotted these Hurly radiator covers on a few bikes in the pits, along with cooling blankets for the fuel tanks.
