2015 KTM 450 Rally

2015 KTM 450 Rally


The new 2015 KTM 450 rally has also just been unveiled at EICMA and since I snapped a few photos of it before it went down to the show, I am happy to be able share them with you now. This is the new version of the Rally bike which will be available to customers and is literally ready to race a rally. Considerably thinner and lighter than the previous KTM rally bike since it has been built from the ground up around the 450 Engine. Developed and tested by KTM and Kiska together with KTM factory riders Marc Coma, Ruben Faria and the late, great Kurt Caselli, the same bike will be used for KTM’s 2014 Dakar bid. It also comes with the Motocross front fender in a box for the mud and looking even better :)

Sorry about the backdrop to these photos, it’s sooo drab. Will not use it again.

Think you could follow that while riding full gas? Look how close the 2 directions are apart!

    MINT! These photos have just turned a dreary Manchester day into glorious Dakar sunshine :)

    Love the stylin and the supertrick nav tower – defo makes the old version look slow (even though it wasn’t)

    Thanx for posting the photos (and the rc ones)

    FUCK!! Now I have to decide between this or the Super Duke R.

    Well, you could have 2 superduke R's for the price of this + change, but you would only be able to drive it on a fraction of the planet. This thing, you could drive anywhere :)

    Holy Schmoly! I hope the adventure version of the 390 has those many fuel tanks if nothing else!

    Derestricted Are you serious?? That just took me out of the running. What is the cost gonna be?

  9. Kenny Jubala 1 year ago

    Evan Strahan I wish! I just want that bike!

    Kenny Jubala Apart from the GFX It's identical to the bikes Kurt Caselli and Marc Coma and others will race in the Dakar – The Ultimate Rally Race I think it's around 30 grand. Expensive, but not really when you consider it's basically the best rallly bike on the planet. The best offroad car costs millions so it's actually pretty cheap. :)
