With Q1 sales figures of the crf450l in Aus (only country I could find sales figures for) at 63 bikes I doubt Honda will be be rushing to build a derivative of this model.
Rally 250 but just in 450/500 form with low maintenance Honda would have sold thousands of bikes.

Ag nee fok Groenie, wat wil jy met daai kak voorste vurke se rake doen? Op n tikie omdraai, en sukkel om oor n klippie te ry? Daai ding het superbike angles op sy voorste vurke man!

Dis 'n step in the right direction. Middel klas bike, nie overpowered, lig genoeg om tegnies te kan ry.

Aplrillia brom dan ook oor 'n 660?

The Husky 701 LR seems like the exact bike everyone has been asking for for years. Put the small screen on and you’re good to go.

See BM has taken the 850 to 900...
The XR900 should be a great tar allrounder.
Should only be a matter of time (read getting rid of old stock), before the 850GS also become the 900GS - 10hp increase, AND hopefully less weight, adjustable fork and more fuel capacity...
