450F Rally joins the production line up - January 19, 2011, 08:19 AM

After winning yet another Dakar, KTM announced that 450F will be mass produced and available to the average rider. Expect it to go anywhere, including deep inside your wallet.

Unless mass production significantly reduces the cost that is a understatement.

I doubt that. Maybe 15 grand. Most of the stock parts KTM puts on a bike do not need to be replaced because they are the best. Hell my 530 cost me 8600 and I could easily see another 7 grand for the Dakar kit. The motor will remain stock I bet.

I based it on the 25.000 Euros they are talking about in Europe, geared towards competitors

The base price for a 2011 450rr was approx $40,000 US

Price 450 KTM Rally: 29.300,-- Euro (without VAT)
Price spare engine (max. 2): 5.000,-- Euro (without VAT)
Bike painted in sponsor basicolor: 1.000,-- Euro (without VAT)
Production date: October 2010
Closing date (for orders) : 15th of June


Board Message
The motor was a highly modified 450sxf twin cam motor. 450 SX-F (97mm bore / 60,8 stroke) with 5 speed quad gearbox, modified oil pump and billet oil filter housing to accomodate EXC filters. Special longer output shaft to get the correct line up for the chain (as per Alex Doringer - head of KTM rally department).

The RF4 is not a high mileage/hour motor, 50hr ring and 100 hr piston changes are considered normal
