They even examined Pizzolito´s bike, while in fact it was he same bike which he raced last Dakar.
No HRC inout in his Honda Argentina bike so far.
I would expect that Despres and Coma would be looking to wrap up their 2 wheeled careers in the next year or two with a few more wins before switching to the relative safety of 4 wheels like so many before them. With that, knowing how HRC approaches a new venture, I would expect they and KTM are a little concerned at the new effort. As for Chaleco, perhaps that is a little concern about an opportunity that passed him by? Bordone-Ferrari is exciting and promising, but most definitely don't bring the resources of an HRC sized effort.

Just speculation on my part.
