KTM 450 Rally Replica

Posted on September 05, 2023

With so many unknowns in a race thousands of miles long, the Dakar Rally is the pinnacle of rallying, making it one of the most notorious and toughest events in the world. You need an excellent engine for that, developed by the most successful team in rally history. A demanding rally driver can therefore fully rely on the qualities of the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA.

Emerging rally talents can show what they have in this way. With a KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA developed in the racing department, they have a machine that is comparable to that of the factory drivers. From the KTM 450cc SOHC single-cylinder, to the sophisticated riding position for long days and the Pankl six-speed gearbox. And it's all been approved and tested by KTM's factory riders, including current Dakar Rally winner Kevin Benavides.


Both battled for victory in the Dakar Rally2 category in 2023 and they also compete on the KTM in several international rallies throughout the season. In an illustrious race where crossing the finish line is already a huge achievement, it is important to also mention the bravest fighters of the Dakar, the riders in the Original By Motul class (known as Malle Moto). In this category, the participants compete without technical support from a team, so a reliable machine is a great asset. Every year, an average of seventy percent of the participants opt for a KTM 450 Rally Replica. 

In addition, the WP XACT PRO COMPONENTS suspension offers precise feel, consistent performance, plenty of traction and is built to take impacts at high speeds and whatever the rough terrain throws at you.

“The KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA is an extension of our factory development program and is the preferred choice of countless riders who want to finish events like the Dakar or who want results to get close to the professionals. 

Many riders have depended on this bike to achieve their rally goals, which is why it was developed in line with our Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Dakar Rally winning machine. It is great to see so many Replicas competing in rallies around the world,” said KTM Rally Technical Manager, Stefan Huber.
