Awesome,
Thanks for the link Rev.
So by the look of it, this bike is more or less the Yamaha WR 450 Adventure that so many people have been waiting for.

It might not be as pretty as a KTM 450...

Gas Gas Rally Raid

Haven't seen this bike mentioned so far on here. Anyone have any details on the Gas Gas EC 450. Looks like a full blow Dakar bike available for 16,000 Euro's.

I'm lucky enough to have a 690, a Husaberg FE 570 and a KTM Freeride 350.

KTM 690 Enduro owners show off your bike !

BRP make mounts for the flex bars which add an additional pivot point. I'm pretty sure you could get it to work with HDB guards
