The 2021 KTM 450 Rally Replica gains sharper edge
Lessons learned in the toughest motorcycle racing arena helped shape the new edition of the distinguished KTM 450 Rally Replica.

The feedback collected from thousands of kilometers and numerous victories at the Dakar Rally and the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship has defined the key upgrades that make the 2021 KTM 450 Rally Replica the most desirable rally competition machine on the market.

In recent years, this limited production model has gained elevated status thanks to the components and performance that have come directly from requests by Red Bull KTM Factory Racing‰Ûªs Toby Price, Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland. This is a motorcycle designed to excel in multi-stage cross-country rallies, to satisfy even the toughest demands of the rally racer and to win.

The fiery 450 cc SOHC fuel-injection motor is wrapped in a competition-based chassis with a series of finer details to denote the exclusivity of this machine. Those specs include refined WP XACT PRO closed cartridge suspension with sophisticated Cone Valve technology and purposeful aerodynamics and ergonomics crafted for peerless handling across a wide breadth of terrain.

For 2021, KTM has honed the engine package with a brand-new gearbox and revised shift mechanism. The direct influence of PANKL Racing Systems materials inside the KTM Motorsport department meant technicians were able to further hike the bike‰Ûªs excellent reliability, but also benefit the rider with a larger gear spread.

The habits and styles of the three Red Bull KTM Factory Racing riders ‰ÛÒ all of whom have sampled Dakar Rally winning success in the last half a decade ‰ÛÒ assisted in the finalization of gearing ratios. The result is that the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA now comes with the same gear ratios as those advocated on the machines of Dakar Rally champions.

Stefan Huber, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Rally Team Leader said, ‰ÛÏThe work goes on! We‰Ûªre proud of the 2021 KTM 450 Rally Replica. With this model we have already set the bar very high in giving the customers a product so close to what we prepare and take to rallies across the world. Of course, we always make new discoveries, and this means the 2021 bike is a significant upgrade.

"The gearbox construction and configuration will make a difference to the riders who want to push the KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA. It is crucial for us to be able to transfer what we learn directly into the hands of KTM riders. We‰Ûªre here to win races but making a better product is very important and satisfying. I personally look forward to seeing this incredible machine in racing action at the upcoming 2021 Dakar Rally!‰Û
