And a six-speed. Don't forget the six speed.
I need to be able to crawl over rocks and then cruise at 85 on the freeway.
Are you reading this in Anaheim guys? Honda, hey! Are you getting all this?
The more I think about this (the more my head hurts!!
) the more I think Honda is going to really surprise us all with a big-time intro. It will be replacement for the R and L, both.
Maybe they'll leave the L in the lineup, hard to say. But bringing out an e-button 650cc'd R replacement isn't going to be "over-the-top" enough to make the kind of statement Honda needs to make. The CRF450 has already proven (sorta) its Baja mettle, so now they will get serious about a true "RED" adventure bike
Specs will be something along the lines of:
- 750-900 cc,
- 50-75 pounds lighter than the KTM's
The first model will be a DS config, top-end of around 130-135 mph. Motard
and desert-sled configs will follow later.
Maybe I've been breathing too much gas fume, but this is my guess.
Please Honda, don't make me look like a fool.
