2017 SHERCO 450 SEF-R FACTORY

2017 SHERCO 450 SEF-R FACTORY

Monster Torque

Introduced into the Sherco lineup in 2015, the 450 is the latest in a line of enduro machines specifically designed for enduro riders. The semi-perimeter frame, as is the case throughout the range, is a welded configuration made from chrome molybdenum steel.

The latest generation engine is compact and very powerful. It is equipped with a Synerject injection system that was specifically developed by Sherco. It is a high-tech system that allows for very precise fuel and air distribution, combining liveliness and escalation … The secret to its effectiveness as an enduro machine was seen on the slopes of the Dakar!
