All Dakar bikes must be street legal, at least in France.

So the fact it isn't street legal is stopping you from getting one?
Looks like it has a headlight and tail light, I would bet it had a brake light wired in there also. For Colorado all it needs is a mirror, and one is good to go.
All the bikes in the Dakar have to be legal for the liaison transfer sections between race sections. they ride on the roads among the other road users of that particular country.
What is stopping me is the enormous price. I could buy a new 1190 Adventure, and a new 500 EXC and have plenty of cash leftover for fuel and tires for a couple years.
Don't get me wrong, I would love to have one, I just live with not a lot of income to spend on a bike which no doubt has an extensive maintenance schedule, not to mention the parts prices for such a machine.

Beautiful bike and totally drool worthy. I am glad KTM is selling this bike. I doubt it is street legal in the USA which really doesn't matter since it is a rally race bike. I will admire it and be totally content to jump on my street legal 500 EXC!
