To be expected from a multiple World Trials Champion, but none the less impressive.

Yep, the old one. Barreda is in California soon to be joined by Paulo and Helder for the initial shake down of the new bike although Helder did some prelim testing in Japan. I am assuming that testing is working with JCR and I do know that Martino Bianchi is also in town increasing the pressure.

It is my opinion that the Speedbrain bike (dos Sertoes winning Speedbrain bike I may add) will be the most sorted, most capable bike at Dakar. With Honda and KTM rolling out new bikes and the associated teething problems, the Speedbrain 450 is well placed to capitalize. Cyril, of course, is one to watch with Yamaha, but the various bikes have yet to win, or even really challenge for more than a few stages where the Speedbrain bike is just hitting its stride.

The SpeedBrain BMW/Husky will no longer have 1st tier riders..

KTM wont go mad, Honda has more riders then new bikes, Yamaha is still the same since 2006.

Dont know what to think of all of the above but KTM will probably win somehting again as they are the most experienced and one of the longest running true factory efforts...

We'll see. Botturi has proven plenty fast and with his age, remarkably consistent and calculated. Chavo, with the +450 championship wrapped up has been gaining speed and confidence and has been working tremendously hard to be one of those top tier riders.

That said, don't be surprised to not see all of the KTM squad on the new bike. Some prefer the dialed in mass of the known rather than the light and agile of the unknown.
