In the 2020 season, Honda won the Dakar Rally for the first time in 31 years. Honda also achieved the 800th FIM*1 World Championship Grand Prix victory while winning championship titles in the premier classes of the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) Motocross World Championship and the FIM Trial World Championship as well.

This year, the team had a good start, winning anew the Dakar Rally, which took place from Jan. 3 to 15.
