it is a standard 690 Rally Bike, but with a lot of factory special parts.
First i did the paint job with a local painter, but after 6 month all the paint on the tanks made bubbles. So i was lucky and i could buy !!! special painted tanks from the factory KTM Rally devision.
This bike is the best offroad (rally ) bike i ever owned.
Hopefully the KTM rally department will continue to sell this bikes.
I think, the rules for the 450 bikes are valid only for the Dakar, not shure if also for the 2011 FIM rally world cup.
So Tony, do you want to change from 450 homemade Rally Yamaha to a professional KTM 690 Rally Replica ?
