That said, don't be surprised to not see all of the KTM squad on the new bike. Some prefer the dialed in mass of the known rather than the light and agile of the unknown.

Would be nice to see Marc stay on old and an American newcomer on the new...

So has it been confirmed that the new KTM 450 is coming out in time?

Given their past experience with the first productions of KTM450RR's I think the new ones will do well

Apart from fuel injection do we know anything else about these bikes?

Its actually going to be 350cc engined rally bike, positioned (sticker kit) as the new KTM Adventure 390 while the factory boys will run a bored out 449cc version.

But that's all rumor ofcourse :)

That's going to make them lean and mean. At last! Adventure biking downscaling to a more technical capable bike.

From the KTM Blog, an interview with Stefan Pierer

Let’s talk about Dakar…is there a new bike coming?
Yes. We always wanted to make a lighter, slimmer and easier to handle motorcycle but with the same power. It is a single and still a 450 following the regulations but is a better handling rally bike. Our existing model was so successful for many years and originally we had the 600cc regulation. We were winning all the time so the promoter and Japanese pushed for the 450 and we put that engine inside the 600 chassis and we still won. However the chassis really is too big and heavy for that smaller engine, so we have done it like motocross with a nice bike that looks good and hopefully Marc Coma will bring it to the finish line first. Tests are already well underway and if you want to compete against Honda and Yamaha then you must get serious! After a long time and successful collaboration Cyril [Despres] went to Yamaha but on a very friendly base on both sides because he wanted a new challenge. He will get it for sure if he is now going up against KTM! Honda have also signed a very fast rider…it is not a club race any more.

This sure looks like Quinn Cody is out playing on a JCR bike with Helder - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater
With Helder and Quinn both posting this stuff on social media, something is cooking.

Who? Quinn once confirmed for me that he had a Speedbrain contract through 2014. Joan and Paulo are both HRC now but who else was there from SB?

Joan Pedrero new ride at TransAnatolia Rally

Joan Pedrero will participate at the TransAnatolia Rally with an Alfer PKL 450 Rally, a bike built in Spain by Fernando Prades with a Ktm engine. There has been already someone that wrote about this project on ADV, anyway following are two articles that describe this bike and Juan Pedrero's situation better. Only problem is that one is in Italian and the other is in Catalan (did not find any better, sorry...):
The bike from MOTO.IT
The rider from RALLYRAID.CAT

On FB I also saw Laia Sanz was training around with JCR, will be with Honda she too at the Dakar?
