We had the pleasure to test ride the new KTM 450, 2014 model.

The orange assault that looks the trick. Is it then better than 2013? Well we think its great, feels smaller and handles better than the previous model. This model had the optional “EFI map trim switch” on the handlebar where you can select two different modes, great feature for a few extra dirhams that let you control the power of this beast.

The bike just feels great with the fatbar handlebar, improved breaks and a notch better suspension. But most noticeable is the amount of power, the bikes pulls like nothing else and delivers more torque than anything we tested here on Dubai Motocross track. The track is not in favour for long wide open sections but trust us, this bike has power. Probably way more than you ever will need.
