Personally I will be fairly surprised if the set-up is all that much more than a tidied up and slightly improved version of the current honda-europe bikes.
Probably the same rear end with maybe a better looking front tank and fairing, also engine and gearbox improvements as well.
I hope I'm wrong as I'd love to see a full Honda effort at designing a 450 rally bike.
Whatever the bike you still have to beat Coma and Despres and if either of them were riding a current fully-snagged, better supported and funded honda-europe bike then would you bet against them?
