Dakar Rally 2014: KTM to prepare new 450cc bike for Dakar Rally 2014.


In an interview on the internal KTM Blog, the KTM CEO Stefan Pierer spoke about the plans for the 2014 Dakar rally. He mentioned that KTM is working on a new chassis instead of the 600 chassis, which was used with a 450cc engine after the ASO changed the regulations.

"We always wanted to make a lighter, slimmer and easier to handle motorcycle but with the same power. It is a single and still a 450 following the regulations but is a better handling rally bike" he said.

Pierer added: "We have done it like motocross with a nice bike that looks good and hopefully Marc Coma will bring it to the finish line first. Tests are already well underway and if you want to compete against Honda and Yamaha then you must get serious!"

"After a long time and successful collaboration Cyril Despres went to Yamaha but on a very friendly base on both sides because he wanted a new challenge. He will get it for sure if he is now going up against KTM! Honda have also signed a very fast rider. It is not a club race any more."
