question on the KTM 450 RR

can anyone here (who has some first hand experience) compare and contrast the motor used in the 450RR to the motor used in the 2013/14 450 xc-f? i've been told the 450 sx-f motor was the basis of development for the 450 RR by the local KTM regional representative. But, I don't think that's right?

I'm looking at buying a 450 XC-f as the basis for a desert race / rally bike. I know the xc-f has the sx-f engine, so my question is how close is this motor to the one being used/tested/raced in the Dakar (and other similarly grueling) race(s).

Thanks in advance for your input.
