I'm really glad you guys had the foresight and motivation to develop this needed product. Here's my unsolicited two cents: the constriction shown at the arrow detracts from the appearance. If necessary, make it less extreme. Also the upper part of the tank should have been slightly wider to match where it meets the edge of the fairing. This would look better however it would close that opening perhaps too much limiting air flow. But regardless, I like it much better than the previous tank which is covered by the side panels. I'll buy it!

The narrow section,as arrowed,has already been changed,now we have CNC models fitted to the development bike.
We deliberately kept the top of the tanks narrow,to give the "slim" effect,a la JVO etc,and also to keep the maximum aperture size for the radiator cut-outs.
Now we have 2 months to machine the moulds from our 3D CAD designs,as we have 7 or 8 Rally-Raid KTM 690's to fit out for Heroes Legend 2012,Paris-Dakar(the original route),at end of September.

Best of luck for the upcoming projects, Mitch. One last question. Would it be possible to develop a type of mini-fairing to work with the new tank thereby keeping the stock headlight, etc. That is, not utilizing the frame mounted front fairing?

Understanding this is still a "rough draft", my initial concerns are where the lower fairing and notched tank come together, loosely. Also the gaps in the fairing and around the lights may cause noise and turbulence to the rider - maybe this fit n' finish will get sorted out in the production. Would be killer if a portion of the new tanks were translucent for fuel measurement (looks painted?)

Cool lights. Have you had a chance to measure the power draw?

Exciting that you guys are developing options for this bike and look forward to following your progress.

Yes, or using the tanks stand alone? As the current ones can be?

Your EVO 2 kit looks very good.

It will be possible to use the new EVO2 tanks on their own,we will supply a flashing to fit on the front of the tanks to bridge the gap where the tanks form the radiator cut-out

Looking forward to seeing it.

Its a moot point for me as I have the current twin tanks on order.
Do you know an ETA when KTMTwins will get a shipment of the current twin rally tanks?
My order was pushed back 8 weeks +-.
Thanks.

I'm looking for a solution to avoid it... I'm thinking to build a "cage" and fix it to the unused motor support viewable in the photo.

Ha! Reminds me of my 95/96 Husaberg! It did not like to have the throttle whacked open at low RPMs...

If you come up with something let us know, just finished pushing my TB back on and snugging it up again. I thought maybe a longer rubber connector so it couldn't back off?
