    2014 450r?

    I searched on here for a bit, but could not find anything.

    There use to be a guy on here named "Phantom" rider something. He had a bit of info on the release of a new Honda 450R, but I have not seen much as of late.

    Anyone know anything about a newer 450R from Honda?

    Sorry if I missed something, I don't come here much anymore.

    definitely no verification from anyone about a new EFI or aluminum frame honda. They aren't in a hurry to release it, although we know for sure there is one already in the making.

    Dirt Wheels pulled a slick move when they photoshopped a supposed new honda a couple years back. It was a big joke!

    Here we go again..


    Facts:
    phantombser is full of it.
    Honda has applied for pattents for a improved ltr (but better) steering design, with full detail of the entire frame.
    Honda has done many things like this in the past and never utilized the pattents.
    Anyone claiming a "dealer" told them is full of it.
    Dealers are told the same day the general public is told.

    Funny story:
    When I ordered my 04 trx 450 the day after their big release in july 03 at a show. My dealer told me there was no such bike.

    There will never be a new honda 450r, it will be the 06+ design until the day we die.

    New technology! Buy another brand if it's what interests you. Honda will continue the vanilla approach until sales drop off.
