The Dakar rally is one of the most admired and watched motorcycle (and other vehicles) races in the world. It's one of the toughest races, specially on a motorcycle, and the stamina required to participate (not to speak of the deep pockets) is legendary.

Recently it would seem that the Dakar race is dominated by KTM motorcycles, and it's true, they have since 2001 won almost very race. In the top manufacturer winners of the stages in the Dakar, they clearly dominate (data until 2009 race):

KTM - 152
Yamaha - 127
Cagiva - 59
Honda - 52
BMW - 46
Suzuki - 10
Gilera - 3
Husqvarna - 3
Barigo - 2
Kawasaki - 1

But in the number of Dakar wins, they're second:

Yamaha - 9
KTM - 8
BMW - 6
Honda - 5
Cagiva - 2

So, it's not only KTMs since the beginning (1979). Here are 46 photos of different manufacturers over the years. You can find many more photos of the earlier years at Dakar Dantan Open link in a new window
