New KTM 450 Rally production racer

To celebrate the marque’s unrivalled 13 Dakar rally wins, Austrian brand KTM have made a production version its 450 Rally race bike for 2014.

Christened as the 450 Rally Replica, the bike features a new frame, a revised rear suspension unit, and primed with a single-cam 450cc fuel-injected engine. The powertrain is then laced further with an Akrapovic Titan exhaust system to round things off.

As its predecessors, production versions of the Austrian brand’s Dakar-winning bikes would only be produced in extremely small numbers. The 450 Rally Replica base model without the Race Pack option is priced in Europe starting from €24,000. Sources also report that in order for you to purchase, you would have to attach your ‘racing resume’ together with the purchase order.
