May 7, 2019

Today Honda announced information and specs regarding the 2020 CRF450L Having taken the dual-sport world by storm since its debut last year, the road-legal CRF450L expands customers' off-road possibilities by enabling access to the best riding trails on public lands, even when that means connecting them via asphalt roads. Based on the CRF450R, the CRF450L is a performance off-road machine, but it also has the comfort and durability to make riding it and owning it a pleasure in the long run. Already armed with features like a titanium fuel tank, six-speed transmission and LED lighting, the CRF450L gets new graphics for 2020.

  • 12.0:1 compression ratio
  • New piston with three-ring design
  • Wide-ratio six-speed transmission is ready for a wide variety of off-road terrain and on-road riding
  • Special clutch design enables light lever pull. Primary damper mechanism with friction springs suppresses engine torque fluctuations, ensuring smooth running
  • Large-capacity radiators with high heat-exchange efficiency for strong performance in demanding off-road conditions
  • Electric fan and thermostat control engine temperature in harsh conditions
  • ECU with dedicated settings
  • Noise emissions minimized via covers on the left and right crank cases
  • Powerful AC generator for street-legal lighting
  • Air cleaner box
  • Dedicated single-muffler exhaust system provides great sound while meeting emissions requirements

Chassis/Suspension

  • Aluminum twin-spar frame designed for nimble-yet-stable handling on trails
  • Subframe designed to ensure optimum rigidity balance appropriate for carrying tools
  • 49mm Showa fork with dedicated settings for trail-to-trail riding
  • Shock based on that of the CRF450R but with dedicated settings and link ratio for off-road riding
  • Front brake uses design from CRF450R, but with additional fade resistance thanks to thicker discs and large-capacity reservoir
  • Endless sealed chain withstands the elements
  • Front and rear sprockets, produced in durable steel material, feature damper system for smooth, quiet running
  • Urethane injection in swingarm to reduce road noise
  • Fuel tank cap with a cut-off valve prevents fuel from flowing out of tank if the bike is on its side
  • LED turn signals with flexible mounts for durability
  • Easily accessible electronic component box on left side of the frame
  • Black 7/8" Renthal handlebar with red pad
  • Compact, lightweight handlebar switches
  • In-mold graphics are resistant to peeling caused by washing or abrasion
  • IRC GP-21F/GP-22R tires provide great balance of on- and off-road performance
