Don't forget the marketing aspect of bike choice as well: Dakar, like any MotoGP, supercross event, or motorcycle tradeshow, is an opportunity for companies to show off the 'best and brightest' of their motorcycle stable.

If Honda, KTM, Yamaha,... want to sell four strokes, and there is no doubt that every company does, the racers will be atop four stroke race bikes.
