KTM Unveils Limited-Edition 2022 450 Rally Replica

This exclusive model is a pure racing thoroughbred ready for battle in the sands.

Published on 06.23.2021

KTM has just unveiled their new 2022 450 Rally Replica, the customer version of the KTM factory rally machine. The replica model was developed using feedback from Dakar winners Toby Price, Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland featuring components that provide the performance level directly requested by these rally raid champions. This is a limited-edition motorcycle ‘Ready to Race’ straight out of its crate and designed to excel in and win multistage cross-country rallies.

The KTM 450 Rally Replica is fitted with WP XACT PRO 48mm closed-cartridge forks using sophisticated Cone Valve technology. The transmission has the same gear ratios as the Dakar Rally winning bikes of the Factory Racing team.

Almost identical to the bike ridden by the KTM Factory Racing team, the 450 Rally Replica is engineered to satisfy the toughest demands of rally racing, being equally efficient at powering through sand dunes at high speeds as it is at navigating hard-packed technical sections. The bike is built around a powerful, race-proven 450cc SOHC fuel-injected engine, which is married to a competition chassis with outstanding flex characteristics.

A wide series of sophisticated parts developed through competition further emphasize the exclusivity of this machine. This includes a set of championship-winning WP XACT PRO closed cartridge forks with high-tech Cone Valve technology. All in all, the 2022 KTM 450 Rally Factory Replica showcases its commitment to delivering real race-proven engineering to racers looking to compete at the highest level. The 2022 model also retains a PANKL Racing Systems gearbox, producing a more linear gear spread, maintaining the same gear ratios as those found on the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing machines.
