After Honda and Yamaha showed their Dakar production racers, it's time for KTM to make a move. The 2014 450 Rally Production Racer is now available in a rather limited run and we hear that prices start at €24,000 ($32,985) a pop.
Now, this does not include any kind of support, as tech assistance is a completely different matter and comes with its own price.

We're looking at the all-new Dakar machine Stefan Pierer was talking about last year, with a completely redesigned frame and enhanced dynamics.

Whereas Coma and Despre last used a bike which consisted of the new-spec 450cc engine loaded in the old-spec 690 frame, the 2014 production racer in a really new machine, altogether.

Among the cool features we should mention the multiple fuel tanks allowing the rider to select the fuel source and thus be able to control the weight distribution for various types of terrain.

A new carbon fiber instrument support also allows riders to get a better view on their front wheel is also standard, with the Akrapovic exhaust and race-ready suspensions.

A&R says that KTM would allegedly sell these bikes only if a racing resume for the privateer rider is presented, so in case this is true, this means that this is not exactly a bike for anyone, regardless of how rich they may be.
