I think, the rules for the 450 bikes are valid only for the Dakar, not shure if also for the 2011 FIM rally world cup.
The 450 rule will initially apply only to the top "A"-class Dakar riders in that specific rally. But most top riders will ride 450's - so it's anyone's guess
when FIM rallies etc. will follow suit. It may take some years - I hope.

But money speaks - and the organizers will decide what makes the best PR and make executive decisions thereafter. Time will show.
Current stable:
2010 BMW F800GS
2008 KTM 690 RFR
1994 Honda ST1100
