The Dakar Rally (or simply "The Dakar"; formerly known as the "Paris–Dakar Rally") is the world’s most challenging cross-country rally event that judges the physical and mental aptitudes of the rider and the machine since its inception in 1978.

The 2017 edition that started this week has already seen four days of exciting stages where both man and machine have been put through the gruelling courses that test them to the limit and more.

For the first time, India has two teams running the Dakar. Hero Motorsports and TVS Racing, and each have an Indian behind the helm of their machines. Two Indian men with two different Indian teams are vying at the world rally stage and going by the history books, we will get to see our country’s first motorsports rivalry taking shape.

Hero MotoCorp is the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer and now they have joined hands with the German off-roading specialist Speedbrain GmbH (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung which is German for "company with limited liability") to formally create the ‘Hero MotoSports Team Rally’. And the India rider running with this team is the country’s top motorsport athlete CS Santhosh who had participated in the Dakar in the previous year.

TVS Racing also entered the Dakar with the technical partner, Sherco Motorcycles, who have successfully participated the world rally for a couple of years now. Soon after hero made the announcement, TVS Racing also showcased their Dakar plans. Riding their RTR450 will be another Indian debutante who goes by the name Aravind KP.

Both the Indian riders were looking good up to the second stage where towards the end, KP Aravind was invited to few fractures due to a crash. Meanwhile, CS Santhosh was still floating at a humble 56th position.

In the third leg, riders had to traverse for 64 kilometres from San Miguel de Tucuman to San Salvador de Jujuy. TVS rider Aravind had another nasty crash which found him fallen off the motorcycle close to 40 kilometres from the start point.

Although he was determined to finish the rally, his grievous shoulder that got injured was not recuperable and this made him retire for the rest of the stages, shattering the debutante’s dreams.

TVS Sherco’s riders Pedrero Garcia and Adrian Metge finished in the 16th and 30th slots respectively.

CS Santhosh too had navigation issues and eventually settled for 67th in the third stage. But unfortunately, it was a bad day for him too as he was penalised to 81st position for having missed a waypoint. However, Hero’s second rider Joaquim Rodrigues is having a successful campaign and is currently floating high in the 18th position.

The Indian market is yet to accept the culture of motocross motorcycles, which coincidently happens to be one of the most practical motorcycle segments for the Indian market, given the varying conditions of tarmac in the Indian sub-continent region. Though, the Indian motorcycling culture has always been more of naked commuters and faired motorcycles, this particular segment of motorcycles is yet to catch up its pace here in India.

It all started when Hero MotoCorp decided to kickstart this segment properly with its first indigenously developed motorcycle post its split from Honda, the Impulse. However, no matter how brilliant the Impulse is, the fact that its underpowered engine doesn’t complement its brilliant chassis has curbed its popularity.

Now, Kawasaki tries to grab the growth-maker of this segment by venturing into this segment with the KLX 110. Now, the KLX 110 might not be a street-legal motorcycle as the Impulse or any other motorcycle in its segment, but Kawasaki has launched it in the Indian market to make it as a good learner’s motorcycle for all the budding off-road enthusiasts, with its very promising chassis and power-to-weight ratio. Here’s our quick review of the Kawasaki KLX 110, which also happens to be the most affordable motorcycle from Kawasaki in India.
