Majority of us would've seen this bike but it looks like it's not just a prototype anymore

They'd sell a shitload if they would make this bike with a 500-650cc engine.

Honda's 1e scrambler/ds motorcycle with a 21" front wheel . . . single cylinder, also was a 250 ( early 70's)
I travelled ZA plat with it.
Is Honda testing the waters again ?

Agree, but maybe that would put it in a crazy price range?

Apparently and from a reliable source there is serious talk of a 450TT. From what i gathered its basically going to be a 450 version of the 250L and is listed for 'Homologation tests"

Honda a very good a keeping these things on the low down.

This 250L Rally is super cool tho  :thumleft: :thumleft:

Do you have a link ? There is no current 450cc engine made by Honda that they will put on the road as a dual sport. Will be nice if they come with something new but keep it close to the CRF450X heritage not a blinged up CRF250L like this  :-\

No link but from a Honda dp here in KZN. He was spot on with the AT rumour back then. He said that Honda Japan are excellent at keeping new developments on the low down. We will see I suppose. I think if it does happen it will be a blinged up CRF250L with a detuned 450 motor of some sort
