HONDA and SUZUKI had won this race 17 times among 80+ events. This is not a race which tests the speed. This is all about the endurance of both rider and the bike. The rider has to ride around 5000+ kilometres. In the beginning, only one rider participated in these races, but now there are teams with maximum 3 riders. How ever, for the sake of HONDA’s victories in this race event, they used “Bol d’or”  name to their productions.
