Intermot: KTM release 450 Rally Replica

Published: 02 October 2018

There are adventure bikes, and then there are rally bikes that are so in-your- face exceptional that they can’t even tell the difference between smooth tarmac and a boulder field. The new KTM 450 Rally Replica is firmly in the second camp.

KTM have given it more power through its redesigned cylinder head. There’s also a brand-new chassis and swingarm, with revised linkage and a new shock absorber for improved drive in the dirt.

"The all-new KTM 450 Rally Replica is based on our already-successful factory machine that we began racing at the end of last year,” said KTM Factory Rally Team Leader, Stefan Huber.
