Could a new XRR be on the cards

Just reading that Cyril Despres the 5 times Dakar rally champion is moving from KTM to Honda.

Ive long understood that Honda had no interest in the Dakar focusing solely on the Baja 1000. This was the main desert race for the US where the majority of their dirt bike sales are.

It could be that the race has now moved to South America and probably become a bigger world even. It is therefore worthy of a Honda team. Either way by recruiting Cyril they are making a big statement. With a 450 limit hopes of a modern XRR are no doubt unlikely. pale
