This 2014 KTM 450 Rally Replica is an exact copy of the bike Marc Coma rode to victory in this year’s Dakar. It can be yours for just $33,000.

“It was expected that the competition would be stronger in the 2014 Dakar Rally,” states KTM CEO Stefan Pierer. “We now want to pass on the experience of such a successful time in this year’s Dakar to any rider who wishes to own this fantastic bike, and especially to those who are committed to making their rally dreams come true or realise their Dakar ambition. The racing service we offer for privateers is as fundamentally strong as the service we give to our factory riders and we are very proud of helping many riders achieve their goals in the rally.”

If I'm not mistaken the 450 SX-F has never been offered in a road-legal version?

The Rally Replica has been extensively modified, hence the eye watering price, but the base model 450 SX-F is actually quite reasonable in the "real world", selling for just $8999 in the US.
