The New Honda CRF450 RALLY, the Star of EICMA


Words & Photo: Team HRC

The presentation of the new 2014 Honda model featured two special guests: the new Honda CRF450 RALLY and the recently-crowned 2013 FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion, Paulo Gonçalves from Portugal.

Paulo Gonçalves, the winner of the Morocco Rally and recently-proclaimed FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion, together with new Honda bike, stole the show at two recent events: the new 2014 Honda models presentation, and EICMA press days. The HRC rider granted many interviews to members of the international press, signed many autographs and was photographed by fans.

In fact, it was the Honda bike on which Paulo Gonçalves rode to victory which grabbed all the attention in Milan’s EICMA Exhibition as thousands of visitors from all around the globe eagerly jostled for the chance of getting a photo.

The EICMA International Motorcycle Exhibition is one of the most important halls in the world dedicated to motorcycling and will be open to the public until Sunday10th of November from 10:00 to 18:30 hrs (including Fridays until 22:00 hrs). Honda has set up an enormous stand (H54) in number 4 Pavillion of the Milan Fair in which all the company’s models will be on display. For more information see:
