Changed from a shorty to a full length can, and the mounting mechanism has changed, holding the exhaust at a much shallower angle (which I would have thought is a bad thing).

Just curious...

I also would have thought it was better closer to the rear tank, but then again maybe that's why they did that - to keep the heat away from the tanks?

More pics in the Rally Moroc thread in the racing section, but here are a couple or three







Also the new KTM...

From Derestricted's site: http://derestricted.com/motorcycles/2014-ktm-450-rally

The new 2014 KTM 450 rally has also just been unveiled at EICMA. This is the new version of the Rally bike available to customers and is literally ready to race a rally. Considerably thinner and lighter than the previous KTM rally bike since it has been built from the ground up around the 450 Engine. Developed and tested by KTM and Kiska together with KTM factory riders Marc Coma and Ruben Faria, the same bike will be used for this years KTM Dakar bid. It also comes with the Motocross front fender in a box for the mud and looking even better :)

Damn that is a little thing of beauty! So slim and integrated.

Looks like HID not LED lights… surprising choice. I thought that the latest LED tech had outstripped HID now, with fewer issues of ballasts etc.

 :pot:But it is a KTM. LED does not cast a beam as far yet. So for a slower bike LED's would work but for this monster you need HID :ricky:
