Rally Management Services builds Rally-Adventure Bikes

Howdy,

Good rally bikes make incredible adventure bikes. Our experience is in making competitive rally race bikes for the Dakar and other international rallies. Our successful race bikes are built for comfort, all-day handling, reliability, simplicity, fuel range and speed; everything you need in a good lightweight adventure bike.

We can build bikes starting with a variety of models. Contact us for details on other models, but here is some information on our proven KTM 525/450 rally-adventure bike, with options and prices.

Check out our website at www.rallymanagementservices.com for rally bikes, rally training, rally support, rally parts, and rally adventures of a lifetime.

KTM 525 RALLY BIKE:
Price: $11,450, not including donor bike.

Price does not include transportation to/from San Francisco, California. Prices are in US$.

Description:
Based on a KTM 525 or 450 EXC or XC, this is the same bike run by Team Rally PanAmerica in the 07 Dakar Rally with top riders Jonah Street and Casey McCoy, and the same bike built and supported for customers during rallies worldwide by Rally Management Services.

This bike is ready to race an international rally. Since rally bikes are built to be fast, comfortable and reliable, this bike also makes an incredible adventure bike.

Team Rally PanAmerica, with its top professional riders and the best development team anywhere, has added sensible modifications that transform the standard KTM 525 into an all-day warp-speed off-road weapon. Years of experience has vastly improved the suspension, cooling system, oil capacity, electrical and all other major systems of the bike. These bikes are capable of getting on the podium in the Dakar Rally, are you?

Your bike will be hand-assembled with special attention to every detail by the same experts who assemble every rally race bike to come out of the Rally Management Services shop.

20 liter fuel capacity in two front plastic tanks, carries fuel weight low and centralized.

Or bikes based on Yamaha WR450Fs, XR650Rs, Aprilia RXVs, etc. Let us know what you'd like and we'll build it.

Anyone who has done significant modification has learned (usually the hard way) that it's never as easy as just bolting it on.

From looking at and riding these bikes, I know what Charlie is not saying- that there are a million little details that make the bikes his team builds better than simply buying parts and bolting them together, from how you route the wiring to which fasteners need loctite to where a standard component needs reinforcement.

Charlie,

Very interested in this post and what you've shown.

Just a quick question tho - how do all these mods affect roadworthiness and insurance for the bikes when not hooning in the dunes?

Ideally i'd love a dakar prep'd bike, but am wary about usefulness/legality outside of the races?

Can you give any info on these topics?

Chris

Hi Chris,

I'm not sure about the UK. But, in the USA, these modifications do not affect the legality of these bikes on the street.

The modifications actually make the bikes much better as street bikes. Cush drive rear hubs smooth out the ride and save transmissions. Oil coolers add oil capacity. Larger radiators help cooling. Frame mounted fairings and low fenders help greatly with wind buffeting and wind protection. Renazco seats are extremely comfortable. Rear dust lights are probably good for warning groggy drivers. In the Dakar, a bike must keep its rider fresh for several hours each morning on the tarmac before the Special, and for several hours afterwards on the end Liaison into the bivouac. So, a well-prepped Dakar bike is actually a very good dual-sport bike.

Check our site periodically also for used bikes.

thanks
Charlie

Slightly cheaper than Meca. Prices on our website for 2 levels of the JVO kit, or contact us for prices on individual parts. The JVO kit uses a plastic rear tank that replaces the subframe, like on a 690. Also, it moves the airbox to up between the front tanks, also like a 690. Makes for a better package, I think. Also, the ergonomics are very good. The resulting bike is narrower and lighter than any other 450 rally bike that I've seen.
