KTM riders have won the last 11 Dakar Rally races, and a pair of factory supported KTMriders will be the favorites in the upcoming race. The Red Bull KTM team will enter four-time winner Cyril Despres (2005, 2007, 2010, 2012) while three-time winner Marc Coma (2006, 2009, 2011) will represent the KTM MRW Rally Team.
Hoping to end KTM’s dominance in the Dakar Rally is Honda who will enter a works teamfor the first time since the early ’90s. Honda has developed a new CRF450 Rally model for its return to Dakar. Based on the CRF450X, the Rally model adds fuel injection, auxiliary fuel tanks, navigation equipment and lower side fairings. Representing Honda are 11-time Baja 1000 winner Johnny Campbell, Hélder Rodrigues, Felipe Zanol, Sam Sunderland and Javier Pizzolito.
