>the honda crf 450 L is way under powerd  25 HP and for 3 HP less you may as well have the crf 250L 22 HP with better mpg and service intervals.

True,but in the next couple of weeks, I BELIEVE Honda  SA will release FIFTY CRF450Lís into the SA market, all of which will have the American Ďspecí and American ECUís fitted, with a truly massive increase in power; uncorcked indeed!
But I get your comments;VERY interesting bike the 390...
Cheers
Chris


but possibly only 50 more than likely less because the crf450L has been homiligated for the lesser power unit.so Unless they go through the whole exercise again , it will not be worth while for them to do this .
Bikes : 2003 KTM 950 adventure S, 2018 KTM 690 Enduro R , BigBoy Revival 150 for the dorp.

Sun, Wind and Sail and for those colder days, My Bike.
Live for today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.

The Bike Show reviews it as well. I reckon this is a good review. Donovan states that it has limitations because if the suspension travel and wheels which is 100% correct. Good bike but it is not a serious offroad tool which I think many was hoping for. I'm interested to see what the 490/501 will be like. Good comparison to other small adv bikes at the end by Mat as well.

Tommy - vir wat dit werd is.........Honda Bloem het Special op die 250 Rally - omtrent R 68000 vir die kaalgat een en die specced een is R 74900.

Sluit in crash bars, pannier frames, rear carrier en 'n helmet.

Not bad, as dit jou tipe Bike is.

I have found this to be the most professional video to date that I know of regarding the 390Adv.Worth a watch.

Hullo Petri..... Ja, daai Klein Rallye is mooi, maar ek is effens bekommerd dat dit net genoeg oomph het oppi oopad...... veral met n tent en bietjie gewig op. :thumleft:

Hi Petri is jy seker, ek sien die CRF250L lys vir R75 000 volgens hulle website. Ek kyk dalk na n 250L teen daai prys van 68k as dit n 2020 model is.

Ja beslis..........Honda Wing (Central??) in Bloem.

Maar jy moet hulle bel, daai Rally Special is nie op die website gelist nie, weet nie hoekom nie. Ek dink Special is tot einde Oktober.

Maar beslis........so omternt R 67/68 vir die "kaalgat" een, en R 74900 vir die op gedolliede Rally.

Verlede week met hulle gechat.
