Bike looks great by the way, interested to see how your going to secure the fairing at the sides.
You'll lose your bike indeed for about 11 weeks, round trip. So having a 2nd bike would be handy.
I did the Oz Safari Adv Tour and Tuareg Rallye and budgets including tickets etc end up being about the same for me. That includes tickets to Perth from Amsterdam etc.
Tony is using the Tuareg Org to ship his bike and crate form bivvy to bivvy so I guess that would run about 600 euro cheaper then what I did (part of EAO team).
Add about 2 to 4000 euros to the budget is you do the OZ Safari rally with your own bike though.
