Enough reason to put some decent money together for media exposure, a hell of a lot cheaper than trying for any World Championship which will not give exposure to such a broad public.
My bet is a French Yamaha.
If they put enough support to his liking and a teammate he wants
and has the bike set up his way he would probably do it for less
than what he wanted out of ktm.
You don't win multiple dakars without being good, like him hate him doesnt matter he's good, so he has the talent and wants the support to make it happen. The fact of patriotism of doing it with a french team is a selling point i'm sure. He knows what it takes to win he wants support that will follow his lead, french or otherwise.
