Honda decided to present their team for the 2014 Dakar in Paris, France. Choosing Paris for this event is even nicer, as this city has been the starting point of the initial rally for a long time, so things are very cool on a symbolic level, too.
Honda will have three riders aiming for new HRC glory in the South American deserts: Paulo Gonçalves, Joan Barreda and Hélder Rodrigues, all three experienced desert riders.

The Honda CRF450 Rally bike was also present at the Tokyo Motor Show, alongside the RC213V MotoGP champion bike.

Honda and all the European vehicles which will attend the 2014 Dakar, both support and racing ones are already in the French port Le Havre, and tomorrow they will set sail toward South America, on a trip which will last more than a month.

And yes, the blue "spy" in the sea of red is the reigning Dakar champion Cyril Despres, now in Yamaha livery.
