To build a Husaberg to similar spec as we used in Dakar this year would be between $25k-$30k AUD depending on how much discounting off retail you can get stuff for and how much of the build work you did yourself vs getting someone else to do it for you..............full retail would not see much if any change from $30k AUD




Likewise to build a Safari style rally bike it's about $20k-$22k AUD full retail again.


What do you want to use the bikes for ??

As an Adv bike they are as good as any you will find, extra super if you want a light weight more agile Adv mount

for the Safari they are much better than the majority and if you have the talent they could put you on the podium with little fuss

for Dakar further development is required with a different front fuel tank cell, oil cooler, twin rad fans.........they need further work to deal with heat managment. That aside the rest of the bike is fine and will do Dakar no problems.
