Light and small isn't always a plus I'd imaginbe for a race like the Dakar. There is ALOT of road riding in the liassons. A heavier bike will be easy to ride (wind, etc). Riding one of these small 450's for 10, 000 km's must be freaking grueling, much more so than a larger bike (excluding the timed sections).

Just a thought
