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.
Thanks Gary, that gives us a whole heap of stuff to ponder over...at 30k that's 'nearly' 10k better than the KTM (retail)
Which is close to 20k saving on two bikes...which gives us the dollars for the spares!!!
Too good will PM you.
