I'm sure that was just a smokescreen - they probably had a couple of 450RRs in the back of a van to divert attention away from the real new bike...
I was going through my photos and I think I might have snapped it - look at this line up - the rider is wearing mirror goggles so you can't see their face, and the bike doesn't have a race number on it:
I reckon they slid the new bike into the line-up for the final stage of the Tuareg Rally to test it in true racing conditions... possibly.
