First look: 2022 KTM 450 Rally Factory Replica
Developed by the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team riders to compete in the Dakar Rally and desert races, KTM has announced the 2022 450 Rally Factory Replica.
KTM has presented the latest generation of its exclusive Factory Replica 450 Rally, the customer version of the motorcycle raced in the Dakar and Cross-Country Rallies World Championship by Kevin Benavides, Toby Price Sam Sunderland and Matthias Walkner.
Based on the bikes which have taken 18 victories in the Dakar, the 450 Rally Factory Replica is arguably one of the best-tested production bikes on the planet.
It’s a machine which is also annually in high demand with amateur riders competing the major rallies around the world and represents an ongoing commitment from KTM to provide the bikes capable of competing and finishing in the most demanding of off-road competitions.
Built around the race-proven, and reliable 450cc SOHC fuel-injection engine, the 2022 KTM 450 Rally Factory Replica has no changes on the new model as we understand it but this is a proven weapon already and it was updated more significantly last year.
