Not a Drill: Honda Is Releasing a 450cc Dirt Bike That’s Street Legal in 50 States

My, what a big engine you have

Honda, giving the people what they want since day one, especially when it comes to motos. We’ve gushed at their strong and shellacked bikes on more than a few occasions, from the iconic Super Cub to that limited-edition Z50M scooter. And now they’re taking us in a different direction; or, two directions at the same time, with a dirt bike that also happens to be street-legal in 50 states.

The 2019 CRF450L —releasing this fall as part of a seven-model update to their CRF off-road moto line — is a cherry red, single-cylinder four-stroke dirt bike, primed to take you from the hinterlands to the backroads to the highway without skipping a beat. Backed by a six-speed transmission, the CRF450L uses an electric start (located on the clutch side of the crankshaft) so you can get your toy up and running no matter the conditions, along with an LED lighting package, black-rims, titanium fuel tank, electric fan … the works. 

Asking price? A shade over $10K. Think of it as investing in an all-access pass to getting around town … an aluminum, motorized all-access pass. Find more info on securing yours here.
