New Honda CRF450L

Post by johnnyboxer » Tue Oct 30, 2018 11:07 am

I have a KTM 530 EXC-R currently and was thinking whether the new 450L would be a better bet to mod for the TET?

Both bikes will need bigger tanks and some accessorizing - so KTM or Honda??

Hi , I don't have either of your 2 bikes , but would go with out hesitation with Honda .
Jap bikes are far more reliable then Austrian bikes .
On a trip you are looking first to reliability , and then to performance .

just my 2 cents

Why aren't KTM reliable?

Some dude from NZ has done over 100.000km on his EXC 500, seems like some people had a second cousin whose 1989 KTM dirt bike blew up, and alas, all KTMs are grenades.

A friend of mine has a crf. 9 grand bike with 28hp, a small tank, only just average suspension and 600 mile service intervals. Dont think Honda will sell many.
