The exhibition features everything the new CRF450 Rally currently in the Dakar Rally in South and which Honda is calling its Machine’ internally, to early Twins and Honda XR500Rs and the EXP-2 from 1995.

no mention of it in the Japanese that we to sift our way through, but it wouldn’t a genius to work out that a edition’ Crosstourer or similar be on the cards if Honda’s Rally performs as well as they this year.

The exhibition even shows how Honda is to the cause of making a return to Dakar by illustrating a pot of sand from when the was run in Europe and Africa. The display a pot of Sahara sand to Japanese to show what problems the had to face in their thinking!
