Honda Wins 2024 Dakar Rally

Second victory for Ricky Brabec, three Hondas in top six, Aussies finish fifth and eighth.

Ricky Brabec has won the 2024 Dakar Rally, with this year’s victory for the Monster Energy Honda Team rider making it three Honda wins in the past five years. Back in 2020, Brabec broke KTM’s long stranglehold on Dakar’s bike division to take his first Dakar win and Honda’s first since 1989.

This year, the 32-year-old American only won one stage, but was never lower than third in the overall standings, despite some close competition from Ross Branch (HERO Motorsports Team Rally), who was overall leader until Stage 6.
