HRC should be sporting Doubletakes!
I bet it falls off before the start of the first stage - Honda quality just ain't the same thses days
Why the 'tarp' over the electronics ?
Dust and dirt ???
I thought that was a bit odd. All the might of HRC and they couldn't manage to issue/engrave it with a VIN number and write a letter saying "this is a new bike" so it could be registered on a 12/62 plate . Not that it will affect how it goes in the race at all, but it looks a bit "low-rent".
The 'low rent' character is appearing elsewhere as mentioned in the thread.
Seems inconceivable really. Is this a half HRC effort or full ?
They just don't want anyone to see the DVDs they watch whilst riding
As someone predicted, they went from LeoVince to Termingnoni exhausts.
It looks very agricultural.
I think I have that same mirror on my 1965 Dream 305!
I wish my tractor was that agricultural
Looks like the perfect pocket for collecting all sorts of crap that will be eager to jump into the tank when the cap is taken off.
good call Bruno, that's exactly what's going to happen, unless they have a blow-off tool handy on the course.....??
You could be right, not very clear on the Team HRC facebook page but will try and find out !!
Not so much a prediction, it was what a guy from HRC at the Bike Show here in the UK told me they would be doing when the got to the Dakar.
Good to know he was talking the truth and not just spinning me a line
Different mirrors, different handguards...
I noted that the HRC bikes look 100% corporate. There appear to be no Redbull logos on Helder's bike. I'm guessing helmet only, JC did have a Monster themed helmet.
Edit: Rockstar/Monster, I can never keep them straight...
I would suspect outside of their longtime suppliers and carrying their logos, HRC is banking on these results before they link up with a major partner to begin rebranding the bikes a la Repsol in MotoGP.
I wonder if that could have contributed to the problem Helder had on the Maroc?
