Four motorcycles from Honda Powersports including the 2019 model year rebirth of the iconic Super Cub and Monkey will be featured at SEMA (Speed Equipment Manufacturing Association) in Las Vegas, October 30 – November 2, 2018.
2019 CRF450R Works Edition – For the 2019 model year, you don’t have to be Ken Roczen to enjoy a CRF450R with factory enhancements, as the new CRF450RWE features a number of upgrades based on the bikes in the Team Honda HRC race shop. Rocketing to the top step of the podium through the use of a specially designed cylinder head with hand-polished ports, Yoshimura titanium slip-on muffler, and special ECU settings, this new model offers increased low- and mid-range torque. It also features the same graphics as Roczen’s No. 94 race bike, including a Throttle Jockey factory seat cover. Upgraded black D.I.D LT-X rims are included, along with black triple clamps and a gold RK chain. Titanium nitride-coated fork legs and an updated, titanium nitride-coated shock shaft increase traction and bump absorption.
2019 CRF450L – The all-new road-legal CRF450L expands customers’ off-road possibilities by enabling access to the best riding trails, even when that means connecting them via asphalt roads. Street legality is achieved via features like LED lighting, mirrors, and a dedicated exhaust system. Equally at home in the woods or desert, the CRF450L has a wide-ratio six-speed transmission for maximum adaptability, while a lightweight, 2.0-gallon titanium fuel tank offers great range. Compared to the CRF450R motocrosser, crank mass is up for tractability in technical conditions, where a large-capacity radiator keeps things cool.
2019 Super Cub C125 ABS – Since the 1958 introduction of the first Super Cub C100 (one year before the launch of the American Honda Motor Co., Inc.), the iconic model and its descendants have enticed armies of new riders to motorcycling with its approachable, stylish design and utilitarian performance that helped alter people’s perceptions of riding. In fact the original Super Cub was the most produced motor vehicle in history, selling over 100 million units worldwide. After 45 years, the Super Cub returns to the United States, with American Honda offering the 2019 Super Cub C125 ABS in celebration of its 60th anniversary. Featuring classic Super Cub styling with an S-letter silhouette and step-through design, the little motorcycle has a fuel-efficient and quiet 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine, fuel injection, a comfortable seat, and ABS brakes.
2019 Monkey – A master of fun, the 2019 Monkey builds on the passion of the 1958 original, while opening the door to the next generation of enthusiasts. The classic Monkey style provides the cues: simple, curved surfaces, and a trapezoid silhouette highlighting the compact length. The glossy fuel tank, finished in the same color as the frame, swingarm, and shocks, crowns the machine, and proudly wears a historical 3-D “Old Wing”-design Honda logo. Chrome steel high-mount fenders—plus the evocatively stamped exhaust shield, circular mirrors, and high-rise handlebar—all pay homage to the original. The Monkey is powered by a modern, reliable 125cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine, and is available with ABS brakes. The example on display at SEMA has been modified with a Yoshimura Prototype Slip-on Muffler.
2018 Africa Twin Adventure Sports – Based on the popular Africa Twin, this new Adventure Sports model offers increased sport, touring and off-road capability. New technology, enhanced comfort, longer range, more suspension travel, and much more give this adventure bike more overall performance for riders who want to explore those far-off places they’ve always dreamed about. The model on display at SEMA has been modified with a Yoshimura RS-4 Works Finish Slip-on Muffler.
