Bummer. If you want both there are options (as you read). Sorry to hear that KTM is using the one that supposedly works with the center stand yet doesn't. And dropping the one they said didn't work, yet does...

Some sort of zen in there... yin/yang...

Got a couple of pics of the '06 yesterday:





Same fork as before:







Only difference I saw was the graphics and that the frame is painted black.

Yes it is. Nice bike, but all KTM bikes there stood in the shadow of the Super Enduro.

Thanks for the pics! But if the story I heard about Meoni's experience on the 950 Rallye are true, the Super Enduro should be named the Super Workout. Add to that the emerging speed limits in competition and I am not sure what that bike is for? Manhood enhancement?

Remember Meat, Meoni won the Dakar on a 950...

The 950 SE is not for everyone which is why you will see limited numbers in this bike. Manhood enhancement or not I think the bike is awesome and many will enjoy it, in the end it's all about whatever your heart desires.

I hope this thread doesn't evolve into one of those "HP2 why would you bashings?" Lets keep it Thumpers.

Good morning boe,
Meoni won, but I heard he didn't enjoy it. And your right, this is old news and there is no reason to get into it again. And no posting pics of your HP2 in the 640a thread

I only hammered on it here because it was posted in the 640a thread; sacriledge eh? Y'all going riding or what?

I have a question regarding the 06 Dakar rally, is it true that only singles are allowed to race no twin cylinder engines? How close to the Dakar bike is the Adventure 640? With the new rules how much slower are the bikes?

best place to ask your question is the Racing forum; that's where the race fans all hang out and sharpen their knives

The KTM 660 Rallye is quite different from the 640 Adventure. As far as racing knowledge from me, little actually, their is a CC restriction for Dakar (600s), not sure if mid sized twins are ok or not? And their is a speed limit of some sort (which I find odd in a race but the racing folk will understand this better).

Pretty sure that the Dakar organisers have banned twins. It may just be bikes over 700cc though. It's likely a combination of the power and weight that did it. A fast light bike is one thing but a 175kph 350kg sand missile is quite another.

Nice pics ...still waiting for the '06s to reach American shores!

...and I'm pretty sure the "950 with a Dakar decal" is the '06 990 S (if you look at KTMs website).

Thanks for the pics!

And no skid plate. It makes the fuel-tap location on the bottom of the left side of the tank look even worse. I wonder if they will be offering it as an option, and maybe the larger version as a more expensive option....

Well the '06 Dakar has been run and won. It starts on new years eve, finishes 18 days later. I'm all ready hanging out to watch the '07 Rallye.

RIP Andy Caldecott.

Twins can race, if less than 451cc.

The 640 Adv is close to the Rallye bikes from the early 1990's.

Compared to the current 660 Rallye the suspension is similar, at least externally. Same story with the engine except it has an extra oil pump and other trick bits to help it cope with the punishment. Frame geometry is similar AFAIK but thats about it.

The bikes and trucks were limited to 150 km per hour and wer given time penalties if they exceded it for a certain amount of time.
