Further info about bikes – from ISDE

Posted by desflurane on December 25, 2010

I was poking around on the KTM site again and ran across the flyers for this year’s ISDE. As I mentioned before, Romaniacs will supposedly be handled in more or less the same as way as ISDE was. So here is the poop there:

Bikes (brand-new, set up 250/300’s) can be rented for 2000 Euros. (So about $2600).

They can be purchased as well for the going rate for a new bike plus 600 Euros. (About $800, making the bike ~$8800).

We shall see what the final word is, but at least I can ball-park things. My initial guess-timate of $6500 is low by at least $1000 if I rent a bike from KTM. But I think that $7500 would be doable (ok, in reality it would probably be $8000+ by the time its all said and done…)

So, the current price breakdown looks like this:

  • $2800 for the KTM Race Service Package – includes rally entry fee.
  • $2500 bike rental (this is a guess based on a few other websites offering similar deals – could be way off here)
  • $1900 round trip ticket from Reno to Sibiu.
  • $1500 for other expenses (insurance, parts, etc.)
  • $8700 Total

That’s getting to be a lot of fricking money!!


Tell me where I've gone wrong... (please!)
