Dakar 2010: New schedule for Bike´s Regulation for 2010/11/12.

Further to the numerous discussions that have taken place with the different actors of the motorcycles’ competition (amateurs competitors, professional competitors, preparators, manufacturers and International Motorcycle Federation) and facing the real interest shown by all the interlocutors, the goal of a maximum cubic capacity of 450 cc is maintained. Nevertheless, so that the competitors can have more time, a new schedule has been set up. For the Dakar 2010, the ASO Elite pilots must ride with a restrictor reducing the power of their bike, if its cubic capacity is over 450 cc. Or they may use a bike of a cubic capacity under or equal to 450 cc.

The other pilots are free to choose their bike with no restriction. For the Dakar 2011, the ASO Elite pilots must imperatively ride a bike of a cubic capacity under or equal to 450 cc. The other pilots must ride a bike of a cubic capacity under or equal to 450 cc, or a restrictor, if the cubic capacity is over 450 cc. At last, for the Dakar 2012, all the pilots will ride 450 cc’s.

The restrictor is currently being developed and it will be delivered to the Elite pilots from mid July. This restrictor has been designed in order to have a similar weight / power ratio between the different cubic capacities.
