HT Rally Raid develops a new rallykit for Honda CRF 450X
HT Rally Raid works hard on the development of a new kit for the Honda CRF 450X. A low centre of gravity and a good air conduction around the engine and the radiators are the main novelties of the kit. Optimal cooling has been achieved, essential for desert-racing. Even with a total fuel capacity of 32 litres, the bike shares its footprint and width with the standard CRF 450X.

An impact-resistant and very strong synthetic is used for the kit. This material is also being used for original fuel tanks. The concept is very innovative and well thought-out: the rear end of the frame is replaced by a fueltank. Thanks to the shape of the front fuel tanks the centre of gravity is lowered, which has a positive effect on the handling of the bike. The kit consists for several modules, allowing the rider to select the parts needed for a specific race.
HT Rally Raid has many years of experience in the world of rally-raid. With Team Honda Europe and the Honda CRF 450X we have been present in Dakar since 2006. The current rally kit of HT Rally Raid has been used by 90% of the Honda riders in the last editions of the Dakar rally to complete satisfaction! The new kit will be introduced at a very competitive price and is expected to be available from half September.
