CRF450 RALLY

Team HRC returns to the Dakar Rally with the latest version of the stage-winning Rally bike. In 2013, the participation of Team HRC with the prototype based on commercial competition enduro model, generated valuable information on key areas such as engine power, aerodynamic performance, durability and maintenance requirements, which was used as a basis for the design of new CRF450 RALLY. For 2015, the Rally bike was updated with some new technologic additions, maintaining the fuel injection system PGM-FI which has proven effective even under severe environmental conditions and highly variable as exist in Dakar, and after a constant evolution the 2020 iteration of the machine brought a stunning victory with Ricky Brabec. Still proudly wearing the Monster claw, once again in 2021 the CRF450 RALLY was victorious at the Dakar, this time at the hands of Kevin Benavides, with Brabec finishing second.
