Yup - that looks like a WR450 motor to me... still the most reliable of all the 450s in my opinion - one of the few (only?) motors that can go a whole Dakar without an engine change...

As for the price of the GasGas though - I can't believe that will be for an Ohlins specced bike - the [similar] JVO kit for a WR450 is €8000+ on it's own, plus the price of the [standard] bike... I think this one was a factory bike dressed up for the photo-shoot?

Be nice though, I like red... and I intend to have a GasGas Randonne as a trailie trialer just as soon as I can get my hands on one!

Dakar Dazed: Debut 2015! - follow the LC4-50 team, and my pick of Dakar 2015 here!

Go Calle! Go #159!!! Go again Next Year!!!
