From Morocco Rally training in the Sahara Desert come these first photos of the Honda CRF450 Rally being ridden in anger. Based on the production CRF450X enduro, the Rally is equipped with long range fuel tanks, bespoke suspension and the typical rally accoutrements like a huge fairing and comprehensive cockpit complete with road book.

The 1,300-mile race starts today and is something of a warm up for Dakar, many of the same teams, machines and riders will be competing, so the result here should give us some idea how competitive HRC will be in January, it’s first Dakar start in 24 years.
