Not bad for the first time out with a full factory effort. But, lets look at the race results.
Class22 1st, place 14:20 Honda XR650R
3rd, place 20:57 BMW HP-2
class30 1st. place 16:07 Honda XR650R
3rd place 20:42 BMW HP-2
Remember that these are all factory bikes. And I will bet that the BMW does well in Paris-Dakar, if they run it.
Is the thing worth $20,000?? The jury is still out.
