The Exclusive is stunning!
I would like that looks with the Rallye capabilities.

So apparently the first batch of Rallye's that are coming has everything as promised except the "sport suspension" with the extra 20mm travel. So basically the new "exclusive" model with the Rallye colours... :'(

The extra travel is actually what I want.... :dousing:

Looking at +- R235k...  :eek7:

Interesting he said the UK versions are GBP12700 (R204k) on the Rallye and GBP16000 (R257k) on the Exclusive, that should make the Rallye R53k cheaper.

I am doubting that here

Thanks for posting the review, it was a good review

I wonder how well this Rallye bike will do and hold up in an actual Rally ...

It may well win a beauty prize at pre-race scrutineering ... if there were prizes for that

Can you confirm the bit about the suspension? All dealers are denying it!

One dealer I spoke to said that there was a Rallye "Sport" coming in the second batch,  this will come complete with Akro's pipes and a few extra's, that is if Auto Alpina is correct, possibly the suspension will come on this model.

Let's wait and see  :peepwall: :peepwall:
