Anyone know what is the big blocky part at the end of the right side swingarm? Looks like it might be a brake carrier.

You had me going for a second. I get the disk guard, just trying to figure the need for the big square of aluminum at the end.

Also interesting to note no Red Bull graphics on Helder's bike. Looks like corporate only.

Has me wondering if the rider contracts only allow for helmet space? I noticed Johnny Campbell sporting a Rock Star flatbill in the family Christmas photo

Why would they still be installed in Peru? If they are dunes flag mounts, they are WAY bigger than any I've seen before.

The "inverse traction articulator" are my words for a チューンドマスダンパー. Or in simple terms, a speciic weight attached to a carefully matched spring. When the swingarm moves, a small mass compresses the small attached spring. When the swingarm stops moving, the mass catches up and then applies a force back into the swingarm a few miliseconds later. That can momentarily give you extra traction, and it slightly smooths out the work the shock has to perform as well. I don't know anything more than that, which is what Gato told me two years ago. What Honda has here probably isn't that, but it's a good story anyway!
