690 size motor in a slightly bigger frame? The 690 has lots of grunt and much much longer service intervals meaning it should be more reliable over distance.

Is nobody listening, 450's can last the distance, only Yamaha had kark (maybe as its not a Rallye Bike) a  bigger capacity lower tuned bike might suit Mal Motto, but it will WIN fark all!!!!  ::)

Those 450's are bespoke engines that cost a bloody fortune.
Cant see a 690 Dakar race motor be any cheaper

Exactly, I don't understand the logic?
