Here some pics I took of Frans Verhoeven and his G 450 RR...
I talked to him 3 weeks ago about the new opportunities.
He likes the G450RR very much and is happy about his new team-mate.
They did some training in south of France the last weeks.

Curious how they compete at Pharao Rallye in October.

Frans is an amazingly talented rider.
He should do good in Dakar for sure.

lol yes he needs it for his frame for sure!
and they got a few electronic issues.

As far as pretty (if you remove the factory 690s of Despres and Coma) , I don't agree. The best looking (design, overall and technical details, integration of tanks and rally features) bikes in Rally today are the BMWs for sure.
Every engineer of every brand was stuck around Verhoeven ' s bike in Buenos aires this past january.

The Sherco is also pretty cool in its simplicity and full carbon robe.

Amen to that, brother!!! The perfect weight distribution on those bikes is simply amazing. Just look at all the race pics taken of Frans, the majority of them he's always riding on just the back wheel

OH well....The thing is that Franz is an amazing trial rider to start with.
Second is that the original enduro bike, having too much weight on the frt, having a loss of traction but all this got resolved with large tank being all on the rear. It made the bike perfectly balanced.

Still took half of Dakar for Franz to really get used to riding a "small" bike again in rally.
When you've raced the 700 Factory KTM, it is really tough to go back to a "normal" bike.

So this ralybike is
