Currently there is one of these for sale in the Flea market.

Apparently it's a bargain at $21K....

It's true. There's a thread here somewhere that started in thumpers around June 1. I think it got moved (or not) but I don't know where to.

http://www.ktmusa.com/Detail.223.20....ash=9d4b98175c

The Reason: http://www.dakar.com/2010/DAK/presen...r3_1-news.html

For the 2011 event, only bikes with engines below 450cc will be allowed to compete, but drivers owning KTMs more powerful than this can still, of course, enter in 2010 – on condition that a restrictor is installed. David Castera answers the various questions being asked by the competitors in question.

Why is this regulation limiting the engine to 450cc being introduced ?
We all want a competition in which real contenders are more numerous, and in which the drivers are competing with similar machines in their hands. In order to achieve this, new constructors must be able to come to Dakar with real ambition. We know that the solution is to limit engines to 450cc. Yet we are also aware that some drivers own very sizeable engines ! All the pilots, professional or amateur, can of course participate in the 2010 edition - but with a restrictor to limit air intake to the engine.

Question Is this the end of the LC4?

Sure...the dakar changes its rules so KTM therefore will drop there most versatile engine and the related group of bikes. I don't think we have anything to fear with the LC4 going away any time soon.

It was not the end of the LC8 when the same thing happened to KTM at Dakar. The LC4 may just get more versatile.

Edit. Here is the link to the whole 2010 Dakar 450cc thread I was looking for: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=470813
