Husqvarna CR450 takes retro off-road

HUSQVARNA-CR-450-Classic-1024.jpgClassic style combined with modern running gear has worked incredibly well for bikes like Ducati’s Sport Classics and Honda’s forthcoming CB1100F. But so far this combination hasn’t found its way off-road. This sketch from Oberdan Bezzi shows just how good it could look, bringing together visual cues from ‘70s dirt bikes and combining them with a top-of-the-line, 4-stroke motocross platform. Modern, technical styles probably will continue to reign on the dirt, but how cool would this thing look as a supermoto?

    The first pic I saw of this was not here. I want to buy this bike! I was trying to find out when it comes out. Unfortunately it doesn’t… damn photoshop. I’m an engineer, have done a few custom bikes and restorations. Now my KX250F 07 is looking at a serious makeover, when I can work out how to hide the frame. Oh I do it for real not on photoshop you poofies.
