It said everyone involved in Honda motorsports like the riders, engineers, mechanics and other team members, is determined to work as “Team Honda” and compete collectively in full force.

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.

Honda, too, will continue to push for the development of young riders. In the 2021 season, the group is still supporting Honda Team Asia, which will compete in the Moto2 and Moto3 classes of MotoGP.

In the Philippines, Honda is a strong supporter of motorcycle racing through Honda Pilipinas Dream Cup.
