Honda has always been a sporting company. Maybe this remarkable effort is no more than one executive's passion for the Dakar? Stuff like that happens occasionally, and it's not like a budget problem.

Maybe Yamaha joins too! We could see a lot of useful innovation for adventure riders. Products that are strong, yet travel well and are light.
