All I know for the moment is that Hélder is doing extensive tests on a Honda, not saying that it is on THAT Honda we saw designer pics of...

Trailtrick, you mixed Brazilian riders.
HRC driver is Felipe Zanol; Ze Helio is doing Brazilian off road championship on a car (a Mitsubishi L200 pick up)

Zanol will be doing the Rally dos Sertoes from next week on.

Defo not the Dakar bike, it may be unveiled in Morrocco mid Oct, but may not be until Jan, or even if it is, still not in the final racing set up

Testing is still refining what they have and Honda would certainly not run it in public until it was ready to do so.

But if you get yourself somewhere in CA or Nevada this week you may catch a glimpse!

Since I know the routes they are riding, I sneeked out with the camera today and caught this shot of the red riders and their new Dakar scoots!

I'd heard that the Dakar engines were still under development in Japan - this confirms it then

The bodywork on the Zanol bike is very different than what the Honda Europe team used this year, so that would go with the Honda Brazil prototype statement. I'm also looking at the rake, it looks to me to be a little more than the stock 450X 27.9*. But that could be my imagination, the way the forks are loaded in the photos, or even the fender
I'm just wondering if it could be the prototype frame.
And even though I am in California, the chances of a fat old guy on a worn out XR 400 getting anywhere near that crew are pretty slim

Alright, where are all the south west spies? I know for sure that Pizzolito Sam Sunderland are in the desert.
