2019 KTM 450 Rally Replica is the most modern example of an all-terrain motorcycle. It is made on the same lines as Dakar winning KTM machines and can be safely assumed as the customer version of the actual performance machine. The 450cc, fuel injected engine used here comes with more durable cylinder head and new engine management system. The front WP XACT Pro suspension with 48mm closed cartridge forks are made to withstand any sort of stress.

The Brembo lightweight brakes further take rally riding to the next level. The seat is softer for more comfort, with new bodywork enhancing the overall presence of the bike. It comes with an Akrapovic exhaust system, lightweight chassis, and additional service as well as support package for the Dakar Rally. The bike costs €26,000 (INR 22 lakh approx) and the figure doesn’t include the amount of VAT charged on the purchase. Only 75 units of the motorcycle are to be made in total.

The all-new KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA is based on our already-successful new factory machine that we began racing at the end of last year, which was specifically developed to win the Dakar. With the latest generation, our goal and focus was to develop a bike around the style of our current factory riders, who required something with more comfort, more agility and improved stability,” said KTM Factory Rally Team Leader, Stefan Huber.

“We looked for an improvement in handling, a lower weight, as well as a bike that also meets the demands of the conditions and intensity that we now find at Dakar. The KTM 450 RALLY REPLICA machine is almost identical to those raced by our athletes, and is available for customers to get the opportunity to own and ride a really premium, purpose-developed rally machine with high-quality components and maximum innovation. It’s been truly revised from the ground up, and we are looking forward to seeing these bikes being raced by our customers.”

Kawasaki has launched the 2018 model of KX250F in India for INR 7.43 lakhs (ex-showroom India). The 2017 model of the bike was already on-sale in India for INR 7.13 lakhs, and it has been replaced by the 2018 model with a price hike of INR 30,000. KX250F is a track-only bike and it can’t be registered to ride on the streets.

Kawasaki is also selling the KLX110 in India for INR 2.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). 2018 KX250F is quite more powerful and practical in comparison to KLX series. KLX110 was for kids while adults can take the fun of dirt riding to an all new level with the KX250F. These bikes are not road legal as it lacks a headlight, taillight and turn indicators.

Kawasaki will not localize the products, hence bringing the KX250F as a CBU only. The reason it is priced on the higher side. The motorcycle is an excellent dirt machine with a 249cc, liquid cooled, single-cylinder fuel injected engine. The 2018 model gets a new throttle body and fuel injector for increased torque. There’s also a new intake boot, fuel pump, camshaft, cylinder head and the updated model also gets a revised compression ratio (13.4:1).

The exhaust header is now longer in comparison to the 2017 model. The result is a wider power band across the rpm range. The bike is equipped with excellent performance components like Showa 48 mm USD forks for the front and Uni-Trak Showa shock at the rear. The front tyre measure 80/100-21 while the rear is 100/90-19.

Kawasaki KX250F weighs just 104.2 kg ad attains the best in class power to weight ratio for ease in all terrain riding. It comes equipped with 270 mm front disc brake with 2-piston calipers while the rear brake is 240 mm single disc brake with single piston caliper. Kawasaki wishes to bring world class riding experience on the Indian terrain and it is even one of few brands which bring most of their products in India within short intervals.

Royal Enfield Spain recently presented a marvel of their personal collection to the world. Classic 500 Green Fly, as the name suggests, is a bare bone custom Classic 500 that has been painted Green for that enhanced appeal.

The motorcycle has been created by Jesus de Juan. The neat and impressive look makes it inline with the Mo’Powa and Dirty Duck versions of the Classic 500. Both were showcased in 2016 at Wheels and Waves, France. Green Fly is not road legal yet.

Custom Classic 500 Green Fly by Royal Enfield Spain

The typical off-road machine uses the frame of Continental GT. It looses both the springs at the rear and gets a replacement mono-shock that’s sightly on the left side of the frame. Green Fly’s seat ends before the diameter of the rear rim starts on the machine.

It uses a custom exhaust system and gets thick, off-road tyres on both the ends. The front wheel is 140 section while the rear used is 150 mm. Alloy wheels are even painted Green on the motorcycle.

Classic 500’s engine used here must have got some modifications as well but they are not yet revealed by the builder. The front section gets USD forks and negligible headlight unit on the Green Fly.

Front disc brake is replaced with a petal unit on the motorcycle while rear has been sourced from the Continental GT itself. The engine compartment is finished in Black while the weight loss scheme on the Green Fly seems really effective.
