With numerous unknowns over 1,000 kilometers of racing, the Dakar Rally is the pinnacle of rally-raid and one of the most notoriously difficult events in the world; for this reason, using the best equipment developed by the most successful team in rally history transforms the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA in an outstanding choice for competitors to rely on.
The factory-developed KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA provides racers with similar equipment to their factory counterparts. From its KTM 450 cc SOHC engine to its purpose-built rider triangle for those long days in the saddle and a Pankl six-speed transmission, the 450 RALLY REPLICA model in KTM Motorcycles range is developed with experience, exquisite engineering, and intense durability testing - all approved and tested by factory riders such as this year’s Dakar Rally winner, Kevin Benavides.

The KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA, which is a serious rally competitor, has also been the springboard of many rally careers: Mason Klein (won the Rally2 class in the World Rally-Raid Championship 2022), Paolo Lucci and Brad Cox, both battling for the Dakar Rally2 category victory in 2023 just to name a few.

The KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA comes with minimal weight, comfortable ergonomics, and rideability at the heart of the design, as the WP XACT PRO COMPONENTS suspension offers a precise feel, consistent performance, all-important traction, and is built to absorb high-speed hits and whatever the terrain throws at it. In terms of motorization, the 450 cc powerplant is light yet durable with an optimized power delivery thanks to its cutting-edge Keihin Management system and ECU maps that have been refined for the conditions of rally racing. The Pankl transmission is the same as used by the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team, as is the exceptional chrome-moly steel frame.

“The KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA is an extension of our factory development program, and it has been the choice of countless riders on their quest to either just complete rally races such as the Dakar, or reach results close to the professionals. The bike is READY TO RACE out of the crate, and has all of the needed capabilities for high-level success. Many riders have relied on this motorcycle to help them achieve their rally goals, and it is developed in-line with our Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Dakar Rally winning machine. This model usually sells-out fast, and it’s great to see so many of them battling at the rallies around the world,” declared KTM Rally Technical Manager, Stefan Huber.
