It was brought up in the dakar thread that the drz would make a great econo-entry. It seems that the rfs is already a proven dakar entity and cheap to boot, these days.
If they were riding a KTM machine, pretty much all of the top riders were on 690's, not RFS platforms. Same goes for last year although the 660 Rallye was much more prevalent last year than it was this year.
