Sure this kind of bike can be a "second bike" for Adventure bikers ... IMO ... waiting for your advises  VCIF_ok

To my modest opinion... in a community which clearly focusses on the larger Honda adventure bikes (+1000cc) I don't see the relevance of a CRF450 and the amount of focus here....
Because for gravel riding big is not your friend, DAMHIK  :-\ .

It is an interesting option for adventure riding, one step better than my transalp...

Could be a good second bike but power is so low. KTM/Husky 690/701 gives more with almost same money.

 VCIF_ThumbUp concept Is one thing, price an other one ... I have no money for a second bike, but sure I will try it when it will be possible  VCIF_ok

Why make 450 with almost same power as 250?

Press test have been done last week in England, surely some article soon.
Nobody at Honda France have seen it, not presented on Mondial de la moto, Paris' show
price will be 10 690€ in France , 150 models will be available in France for 2019.
It will be easy to unleash ....
I hoped some more information, surely in EICMA...

The release of the bike was here in North America in Packwood, Washington, which is close to Mount St. Helens and Mt. Rainier.
