The CRF450L mixes its competition-bred performance DNA with full road legality and reliability. And is a helmet-full of fun wherever you ride it.
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.
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.
Away from the MX track too much peak power saps precious energy. On the trail torque that finds drive is what matters and the CRF450L makes a strong, fluid 32Nm balanced by power of 18kW, making life easy for its rider, not harder.

The excitement levels are high here in Honda HQ – the 2019 Honda CRF450L is set to arrive to Irish shores in October!
It is unmistakably a race-bred CRF – and looks it – but with the additions and modifications needed to make it both road legal and supremely useable in a trail environment. The CRF450L is a complete package, as happy roosting trails as it is linking them up on-road. And with Honda engineering and build quality at its core, is sure to do so for years to come.
A true dual-purpose motorcycle should be many things; off-road it needs to be light weight, with quality suspension and handling ability that keeps life easy as the going gets harder. Its engine has to make good power and torque from the bottom up – the sort that is supremely usable, allowing the rider to find all the rear wheel grip possible, whatever the terrain.
All the attributes that make it great fun off-road also enable it to be really useful around town; narrow and nimble, a dual-purpose machine slips through gaps, soaks up the hits from rough roads and stays well ahead of traffic thanks to smart, low-gear acceleration. It also needs to be turn-key reliable, with sensible intervals between major service work.
This much anticipated model will arrive to Ireland in October 2018 and will be available from your local Honda Motorcycle Dealership. Prices are currently not confirmed.
The long awaited Honda CRF450L will arrive to Ireland this September.
Honda had a desire to produce a dual-purpose bike that draws strongly on the fundamental performance of a race machine CRF450R, yet with much more ‘normal’ service intervals and high-quality road ancillaries, has taken its CRF450R moto-crosser as the base to start from, and created the new CRF450L.
It is unmistakably a race-bred CRF – and looks it – but with the additions and modifications needed to make it both road legal and supremely useable in a trail environment. As such, the CRF450L is a complete package, as happy roosting trails as it is linking them up on-road. And with Honda engineering and build quality at its core, is sure to do so for years to come.
The journey from full race to road legal trail was a detailed one for the CRF450L. Road legality required the engine to gain EURO4 compliance, while from a longevity and usability viewpoint, the power output and character, needed careful attention.
It’s still a CRF450R; just one that’s quieter, both mechanically from the chassis and engine, as well as its new exhaust. Both fuelling and ignition maps are now managed by 02 lambda sensor; compression ratio has been lowered and crank mass increased for improved drivability. The gearbox is a 6-speed – for longer legs on the road – and a cush drive has been added to the 18-inch rear wheel.
The plastics are lifted directly from the CRF450R and all lighting is LED, with the front headlight in particular throwing out a penetrating beam. Increased volume for the titanium fuel tank adds range and all the items that make the CRF450L ready to purchase as a licensed, road going machine – such as speedometer and horn – are present as standard.
