The engine - the usual single-cylinder, fuel-injected, 450 cc –, cantilevered on a trellis frame, has been improved to be even more powerful and reliable. The battery and the air filter have been repositioned and the wiring simplified allowing masses to be centralized making the bike even usable, but above all everything seems designed to make routine mechanical work even easier.
To improve the behavior and stability of this Rally on the fastest stretches, the chassis and swingarm have been completely renewed, taking advantage of the valuable suggestions of Dakar winners Toby Price, Mathias Walkner and Sam Sunderland.
Mileage is guaranteed by 4 separate tanks, 2 front ones with a total capacity of 15.5 liters. and 2 rear ones with 15 lt. in total; to guarantee a correct flow of fuel in all circumstances, 2 pumps operated by pushbuttons on the handlebar have been installed, so that emptying occurs in line with the characteristics of the route.
The radiators are bigger as is the fan that forces air against them, an additional radiator for oil cooling and a reinforced clutch are also present. The Excell rims are specially designed for African marathons and the rear one is equipped with flexible couplings.
The suspensions are obviously WP, the front featuring the 48mm closed cartridge "Cone Valve" model, the rear the well-tested "WP Trax". The steering plates and the front brake caliper are made of precious Ergal, the first from a solid block.
The carbon tower with floating road book holder and full RTF commands, full led lights, Scott steering shock-absorber and Akrapovič exhaust complete the countless accessories.
Declared power: 78 hp; dry weight: 139 kg; wet weight in running order:163 kg, including the obligatory 3 lt water reserve placed in a special container under the engine.
