Review Geocities.com  /  The Story

 

Competitors in the eighth Paris-Dakar Rally headed south into the wilds of the Sahara desert, struggling over the dunes in search of glory in this torturing rally that lasts more than 20 days and approximately 14,000km. Automotive manufacturers taking part in this renown rally concentrate on reliability of the machine, which is more of an asset than speed. Honda will remember the 1986 Paris-Dakar Rally for their victory in the two wheel category with the NXR 750 desert racer. Cyril Neveu came through the sea of sand riding on this superlative hi-tech rally machine, to reach the exotic shores of Senegal, making history as the first ever, liquid cooled engine powered motorcycle to win this rally.

The history making four valve, SOHC, V twin cylinder liquid cooled engine has a displacement of 779cc, and produces more than 70 horse power. This racer was developed exclusively for the Paris-Dakar Rally by the Honda Racing Corporation, better known as HRC, who are renown for producing many record breaking/legend making racers. Their painstaking endeavors are apparent in the NXR's slim, low center of gravity concept configuration. The dual headlights and cowling are rarely seen on these off road type motorcycles and they stood out as it sped through the heat waves of the Sahara.
