Appears I was off with my Despres switching to 4 wheels prediction. I remember someone way back predicting a move to Yamaha. Well done.

Yep. Just made sense.

Not that It wouldnt have surprised me if he had gone elsewhere with a better deal. But looking at the options I can't see why it didn't sound like the best deal. I don't think he was 'pushed' out of KTM either, but there are new young guns coming up. From a team perspective, if the King never gives up his crown, the legacy never gets to try it's hand at rulership...

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.

john

I take my hat off to you John. By including the bit about "first hand experience" you have cut off 99.5% of the responses you were going get.
I'll dig out some details for you, but rest assured there are a fair few differences between a 450 Rally motor and a SX-f motor. I have seen both close-up and personal, including the insides, but even better I know someone that has grafted a 450 Rally motor into an XC-f frame. (Actually it's for sale at the moment and I'll find a link to it for you). There are many considerations that the average punter that doesn't have the "hands on experience" wouldn't even think of.
Cheers
JayBo

Seeing that red marlboros run at about 20 Oz dollars a pack while in Albania less then 1 euro and 50 cents, I'm considering to start an alternative business

Ill fill up the metal box with 100 orso cartons and will buy you a bike myelf!!

See you att he Safari?
