THE NEW CRF450L is based on the championship winning competition CRF450R and built in the same factory in Japan this is a competition ready Off-Road Trial bike that can be used on the road. 

Sharing many of the components of the CRF450R with the addition of road legal tyres, lights, indicators and number plate holder this bike will appeal to riders who want ride to the woods and dirt roads, ride them and then ride home.  Of key importance for the hobby trail-rider’s perspective is the engine’s reliability and gap between service intervals. And this is where the CRF450L’s build quality and design really stands out; it will go 32,000km between major strip downs, with an air filter oil and oil filter change every 1000km.
