In the battle to conquer the 2017 Dakar Rally, Monster Energy Honda Team line up with the support of several key collaborators including Acerbis, a brand with strong links to rallying.
On 2nd January 2017 the five riders of the Monster Energy Honda Team, Joan Barreda, Paulo Gonçalves, Ricky Brabec, Michael Metge and Kevin Benavides will join the fray in as tough a race as a bike fan can imagine. A gruelling competition that tests both man and machine to the absolute limits and where the margin of error is quite simply zero.
This is why Monster Energy Honda Team has great faith in an experienced, high-quality brand such as Acerbis; a company highly-steeped in the racing tradition. The Italian brand will be involved as technical collaborators, supplying the team with various plastic materials such as the fuel tanks, handguards and other elements aboard the Honda CRF450 RALLY.
The Monster Energy Honda Team and Acerbis will battle together for the victory as the riders take on some 8,800 kilometres in the 39th edition of the Dakar Rally that will snake its way across Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina.
