I'm aware of the price tag etc. Just wanted to see if anybody had pointers about service intervals, parts availability etc. I've seen a few ads with some of these and wondered if anybody had practical user experience with a Rally Replica - in case one should land in my hands. I'd be more than happy to own and ride one extensively.

I do 40 000km's a year on bikes - including 10 000km during the winter - but a beast like these would be a dream come true in many respects. Most of all I'd like the quick-detachable fairings and relatively robust front assembly with a far more solid and crashworthy function than my 800GS - which has proved to have a soft ( and expensive ) soft jaw when something hits the front lights at specific angles. If I see correctly the 690 Rally Replica has projector lights and a more solid, metal-based instrument/light assembly frame being more stress- and crash-tolerant once (not when) a crash happens.
Current stable:
2010 BMW F800GS
2008 KTM 690 RFR
1994 Honda ST1100
