KTM 450 RALLY Factory Replica 2022



KTM has dominated the Dakar Rally since 2001. To keep the edge, a new factory race bike was unveiled at the 2018 Dakar rally. For 2019, the same overall design, layout and features are now available to non-factory riders with serious Dakar, rally raid and cross-country rally ambitions.

Light weight and high performance are needed for sheer speed and agility offroad, but in the extreme environment of rally and desert racing, durability and reliability are critical too. The new powerplant balances race winning performance with the ability to go all the way.


The reworked transmission has the same ratios as the previous model, but features an improved shifting mechanism for slicker shifting at all times. Made from high-quality steel and treated with a special coating to ensure high durability and reliability, essential for long-distance rallies.


A new AKRAPOVIČ exhaust is tuned to work perfectly with the new engine and airbox. Compared to its predecessor it is shorter and sits lower for better mass centralisation, which further improves handling.

Engine Management System

The state-of-the-art Keihin engine management system (EMS) features a new 44 mm throttle body, for instant response and consistent performance due to its unique injector position. ECU maps were adapted for the new airbox and cylinder head, with an improved map-sensor seal. Different maps ensure optimal power delivery for each gear according to information received […]

Cylinder Head

The newly designed single overhead camshaft (SOHC) head was constructed from premium-quality materials, using precise construction and tolerances to deliver leading performance for longer periods.


The completely reworked new airbox is mounted above the engine, ensuring better airflow to the engine for ideal performance and instant throttle response. The large TWIN-AIR filter offers effective protection of the intake from dirt and dust. In addition, the new design provides much more space for electric components like the battery, which is now […]



The speed, demands and dynamics of racing in the most extreme long-distance offroad races on the planet, means that there is a lot more to the chassis design than ‘just’ agile handling. It needs to handle unpredictable forces, while carrying enough fuel, tools, water and equipment to cater for all possibilities in the battle for long-distance offroad race glory.


The new model features a cast aluminum swingarm that is lighter and has precisely-tuned flex behavior that supports the suspension action. A reworked linkage system with a revised rising rate transfers force to a new shock absorber, which gives the rider an improved feel, better traction and increased bottoming resistance – for better stability and […]


The new 450 RALLY REPLICA is fitted with the latest WP PRO COMPONENTS. Up front, a 48 mm closed cartridge XACT PRO fork features sophisticated Cone Valve technology, which combines with the new WP XACT PRO shock in the rear for improved overall damping, balanced responsiveness and higher bottoming resistance to keep things stable at […]


KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA features a new high-tech and lightweight trellis frame made of chrome-moly steel. The new frame design guarantees optimized stiffness, thus providing better feedback to the rider as well as improved handling and excellent straight-line stability. The rear self-supporting fuel tank with a capacity of 16 litres doubles as the subframe too.

With a sport as extreme as this, the rider cannot have his movement or control compromised at any time in the wide range of terrain types and situations he will encounter. The challenge was to allow exceptional athleticism and range of movement at any instant, while also ensuring that the rider is comfortable enough to focus and maintain their pace all race long.


Between the rider and race bike lies a newly shaped seat. It provides improved ergonomics, increased grip and heightened control, while boasting better seat comfort for longer distance race action.

Bodywork og dekaler

Bodywork og dekaler

The challenge with the 2019 KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA’s bodywork design, was to allow maximum rider movement for all extreme race scenarios, with high wind protection, lowered helmet wind turbulence, all while ensuring there was very little to cramp or distract the rider while in full flight. A comfortable posture with access to all of the relevant equipment and information while still fixed on the track ahead. Reducing weight, heightening agility, and keeping mass as centered and low as possible, were of high importance.


With direct input from KTM’s factory racers, the new bodywork was designed and shaped to keep the bike as slim as possible. The aim was perfect ergonomics and contact points for the rider, with more freedom of movement. A newly-developed navigation tower made of extra-light carbon fiber is well protected behind the new fairing for […]

Ride modes allow the rider to adapt the behavior and feel of the engine, while KTM’s lean angle sensitive traction control system (MTC – Motorcycle Traction Control), reduces wheel spin based on the chosen mode or riding situation. KTM’s cornering ABS system allows riders to use the full power of their brakes while taking the lean angle of the motorcycle into account. It has an advanced offroad mode that can also be turned off.


By selecting offroad ABS, ABS is deactivated on the rear wheel, while front wheel ABS intervention is reduced and data from the lean angle sensor is not considered. This allows riders to lock up the rear wheel, which can be used to steer into corners. It reduces the tendency of the ABS on the front […]


The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) is a lean-angle sensitive traction control system that reacts immediately the instant rear wheel rotation speed becomes disproportionate to the riding situation. In mere milliseconds, MTC reduces engine output with an extremely smooth, barely perceptible intervention at the throttle valves until slippage is reduced to optimum proportions for the selected […]


With the KTM MY RIDE system, a smartphone can be connected to the bike, which gives the rider the option of receiving phone calls, listening to music, and, using the optional app for navigation (further information available on www.ktm.com/my-ride).


KTM’s cornering ABS system allows riders to always use the full power of their brakes while the system adjusts brake pressure to match the lean angle of the motorcycle, for safer and more predictable braking across a wider range of conditions and scenarios. It can be turned off for offroad conditions.



On an adventure ride, storage space is essential. Tools, camping gear, food – KTM offers a solution for all circumstances. You can choose from a lightweight, lockable aluminum touring case set (two sizes), or waterproof soft sidebags when low weight and flexibility are needed. There’s also a quick-lock tank bag for daily essentials and waterproof universal luggage for additional cargo capacity.
