The 2021 CRF450RL: A Street Legal Motocrosser

The 2021 CRF450RL is the reimagined CRF450L from years past but it’s still loaded with off-road enhancements. It’s based on the CRF450R motocross platform but tuned for ripping on the trails and street alike.

Honda Motorcycles tuned the CRF450RL’s engine to enhance and improve low RPM torque performance with a new crankshaft. It received a new ECU to refine the fuel delivery system to the 449cc liquid-cooled engine capable of 41.7hp.

The CRF450RL comes with a wider frame to make room for the 6-speed transmission which proves versatile no matter what the trails call for. It’s another bike in the 2021 Honda lineup that comes with Showa forks and a Pro-Link rear shock that provide a comfy ride in even the roughest terrain. This Japanese motorcycle comes with 12 inches of travel in the front and 11.8 inches of rear travel – exactly what you need whether you’re climbing, crawling, or hitting the berms.

The 2021 Honda CRF450RL starts at $9,999 USD / $12,199 CAD.
