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.
An engine tuned to drive
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.
