    Oh my word! That's real bike porn!
    It's surreal and sublime. Amazing job.

    Yeah, I was gonna say the same thing.....not up to the visual standard of the rest of the bike, but what do I know, from another angle they might not look that bad :D

    I love this indicator solution.
    The indicators are placed in a way that they don't brake when the bike tips over.
    And the bike WILL tip over, many times :)

    It's nice to see a bike of that quality in the hands of someone who will use it for it's intended purpose.

    I think everyone got that - they still don't look very good in that picture.

    I dont know the dry dry weight, but probably around 141 kgs!

    As the bike had not been registered in the UK before, Lyndon stuck it on the official scales at the UK Ministry of Transport. Empty of fuel, but still with engine oil, coolant, fork oil, shock oil, and air in the tyres, Boris officially weighed in at 145 kgs. Which is wet weight, no fuel. A factory level dry weight reading will be taken fully dry - without all of the above fluids adding 4kgs or so to the picture.

    That 145kg is incredible considering the extras on the bike, a standard 654cc 690 is 138kg. I'd love to know where the weight savings are coming from. Guess it's the frame and maybe the swing arm and wheels.

    Stunning bike. Can't believe how light it is as well. Would be nice to know where the savings is. I thought A60 rims were heavier than other options.

    Indeed, those 145kg places it next to the 450 rally, impressive.

    Don't know the exact internals of a LPR machine, which is far different from the original 690 RFR but analysing the owner manual for the latest three generation of Dakar winners we have:

    2007-2010 KTM 690 Rally Replica - 162kg approx. weight without fuel.
    2011-2014 KTM 450 Rally Replica - 145kg approx. weight without fuel.
    2015-2016 KTM 450 Rally Replica - 139kg approx. weight without fuel.

    From what I know this weight provided by KTM is the bike weight ready to race without any fuel in the tank.

    If Boris weighted 145kg it's pretty impressive given the fact that for sure the 690 engine (EFI or Carbed) is heavier than the a 450 powerplant.

    All well and good until he adds a solid 2" steel bash plate, 20kg of tools, six spare tubes, a flare gun, two tubs of vegemite and a couple ADV stickers. To say nothing of a rider.

    Seriously though, it looks great. Thanks to both colebatch and Lyndon for posting this build thread and my apologies to Lyndon for all the folks who'll be hammering down his door for their own (he takes out of state checks, right?). I'm looking forward to reading about it in action.

    We all know weight is important, sure it is, but y'all taking it way too seriously. It's the capability of the bike that is what's important, the weight helps that for sure but it's not all about the weight.

    Let's say the calibrated scales of the MoT are out by 10% making the bike 160kg. Still pretty impressive considering it's specifications and abilities.

    5kg's are saved changing the rear tank
    My silencers are 2.2kg's lighter than stock
    No bash plate is lighter than any bash plate
    yada yada

    Walter, I'm more looking forward to you putting it through it's paces than seeing it sitting on scales or posing for pictures :-)

    Enjoy it.
