Really nice job on these bikes, but that picture in the background makes the first one hard to look at!

Ha! Yeah, it's a weird camouflage effect that makes the model hard to see; they blend together! (My eyes are really sensitive to things like that) Love the builds!

Oh it would be a blast, just like the Baja 1000.Flat out and open top speed....

Nice job on all those.  Since I found and built the 959, and discovered the Unimog race truck, I've been a fan of sorts of this race.  Can't imagine riding a motorcycle all that way.

nice work - very accurate to the real deal.

Had the pleasure of touring the KTM assembly plant in Austria a few years back and saw these touring bikes (and other models) assembled in person.  What a facility - the cleanest manufacturing plant I have ever seen, second to only to Toyota.

Love the quality control: EVERY engine is strapped to a diagnostics machine and run at WOT for full 20 minutes.  If there is a slightest vibration or RPM out of spec, then it doesn't see a bike chassis.

When the bike is completed, it is driven off the assembly line and on to a chassis dyno where it is hooked up and again ran at WOT for 15 minutes.  If everything is in spec, then its ridden (hard) out of the plant.

Would have taken pics, but we had to sign an agreement preventing us from doing so.

Thanks for sharing your model!

Are these kits or die cast?
