What is trial bike?
Trial Bike is not familiar in Bangladesh, but it is very much popular motorsports in Europe and Japan. Trial is not racing for the speed and competes for the manoeuvrability to go to the goal without getting stuck while going over obstacles with a bike.
There are two types of world championships, and the “X Trial” held from January to April is also called “Indoor”, and it boasts a glamorous atmosphere in the artificial competition section set up in the stadium. On the other hand, “outdoor” refers to the “trial world championship” from May to September, and dynamic running can be seen on a course that makes use of natural topography.
Honda participates in the works as “Repsol Honda Team” and won 12 consecutive constructors’ titles for outdoor. Even in the individual title, after Takahisa Fujinami won the first outdoor world champion as a Japanese in 2004, Tony Bow won 12 consecutive championships until 2018, both indoor and outdoor.
