Honda released the first pictures of their CRF 450 Rally machine which is expected to bring more glory next year in the unforgiving Dkar 2014 rally. Team HRC unveiled the cross-country rally beast in an event held in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Honda had an extremely long, 24-year absence from the Dakar, until January 2013 saw the HRC machines riding once more in this world-famous rally. The Dakar prototype is based on the commercial competition CRF450X bike, and the 2013 Dakar Rally provided extensive data on multiple aspects, such as engine power, aerodynamic performance, durability and maintenance requirements.

The 2014 Honda CRF 450 Rally retains the PGM fuel injection, but numerous updates have been added to the new machinery. The 2014 Dakar bike will be tested in the Morocco Rally 2013 which starts on 13 October. Honda will have the 5-rider team announced earlier this year: Helder Rodrigues (Portugal, 34), Sam Sunderland (UK, 24), Javier Pizzolito (Arg, 33), Joan Barreda (Spain, 29), and Paulo Goncalves (Portugal, 34).
