Honda had announced it there is little: 2013 will mark the official return of the winged mark on most prestigious of the rallies raid, Dakar. It is in Intermot of Cologne that the veil raises on the Honda CRF 450 Rally, a motor bike which takes again the bases of Enduro Honda CRF 450 X, but which receives its batch of evolutions and technical solutions specific to the practice of the Rally Raid.
Except the arrival of the system of injection electronic PGM-FI and a set of Showa suspensions, the features are not revealed yet. Honda will undoubtedly reveal us a little more as of the Rally of Morocco on October 14th, where the 5 official pilots (Johnny Campbell, Felipe Zanol, Sam Sunderland and Javier Pizzolito) will be committed. A setting in leg for the motor bikes, pilots and technical assistance for Dakar 2013, where Honda clearly announced to aim at the victory.
