The KOVE 450 RALLY is the ultimate lightweight ADV bike that you have been dreaming of! KOVE has finally struck the perfect balance; lightweight agility and off-road suspension meet distance-friendly ergonomics and rally-raid styling. The 450 RALLY is not simply rally-inspired; it’s rally-BRED! Designed from day one as a rally motorcycle capable of competing toe-to-toe with the highest dollar factory race bikes, the KOVE 450 RALLY is more than up to the task of carrying you on your next adventure!
The heart of the KOVE 450 RALLY is a 449cc DOHC single that is cooled by large dual radiators with an electric cooling fan each. In addition, an external oil cooler keeps the lifeblood of the engine in cool while providing additional oil capacity for extended service intervals. Fueling duties are handled via fuel injection, controlled by a Bosch ECU.
The engine is housed in a steel semi-parameter frame that house three separate fuel tanks. A long, flat, comfortable seat sits atop the bike and will provide you with hours of comfortable riding. When it’s time to check the air filter, simply tug on the seat release cable and the seat pops off, revealing a huge foam air filter element that sits up high and is well protected from water and dust.
Fully adjustable 49mm YU-AN forks and a matching YU-AN reservoir monoshock suspend the 450 RALLY and give you 12” of suspension travel on the High Seat model.
High-intensity LEDs light up the night and make sure you can easily find where you’re going if your adventure stretches on past sunset.
The diamond-shaped, dual-wing beam steel frame houses a seriously upgraded version of the ultra reliable and bullet proof Zongshen NC450 engine that powers the Fantic Carabello amongst others. However, Kove has fitted a double overhead cam head along with Bosch fuel injection and mapping taking the power to 52 bhp and impressive torque figures of 42nm at 7000 rpm. The power delivery from this liquid cooled 8 valve engine is velvety smooth on the bottom to aim traction but boy does this engine rev. The double cam and mapping has turned the engine from a thumper to what many have described as feeling like a twin. .
Dry weight is an ultra competitive 145kg. 2 forward and 1 rear petrol tank take the capacity to a stage completing and continent crunching 31 litres. It is possible to isolate one tank to use as water storage as per rally rules.
21 and 18" wheels provide great tyre choice. Tasko brakes all round which use Nissin pads.
These are direct special order only and will be supplied in the crate for collection and home assembly by the owner.
At special request they can be assembled and PDI by Rugged Roads
DIGITAL DISPLAY ON INTEGRATED NAV TOWER
The integrated navigation tower is bolted securely to the frame; this means that your digital display is set at the perfect height, angle, and distance away from you for optimum viewing, and the display always remains centered and un-moving, regardless of how you turn the handlebar. Quickly scroll through settings and information on the digital display by toggling the buttons on the handlebar. USB , Bluetooth ,WIFI connection +GPS reciever.
30 LITRE (8 GALLON) FUEL CAPACITY
The 450 RALLY features three fuel tanks. Two front tanks sit on either side of the frame backbone, and a third tank sits at the rear of the motorcycle and doubles as the subframe. All three tanks add up to a combined capacity of just over 30 Litres (8 gallons), which provides you with a realistic range of 300+ miles!
The 450 RALLY has ABS front and back that can easily be switched on and off. As an added plus, the ABS system remembers the last brake setting you selected; when you shut the bike off with the kill switch and start it up again, the ABS system remains in the last state you set it in.
The beauty of the Kove rally is that it is very adaptable and a bike that can do so many things well. Its suitable for Rally, wide enduro , TET ,commuting , short trips as well as longer World Adventures .
Designed to be raced. It's a properly tuned, tried and tested motorcycle. It's designed as something that you can take and immediately use in the Dakar or other equivalent rallys. It's very unusual for such a high spec machine to be released. This is not designed for gentle trail riding, although it will no doubt do it very well. This is not a lookalike, it is the real deal. Designed to be raced. The engine and the whole bike have been in development for 3 years whilst tests have been ongoing. We've been waiting for this particular model for this amount of time, but find the delay to be reassuring.
All parts will be stocked here in the UK including service kits. Extra general maintenance parts can be supplied with your machine. Parts are reasonably priced.
The Kove is on a whole other level of expertise and exclusivity. It is the real deal. Something that's been tested for years in competition in the desert as well as multiple finishes in the 2023 and 2024 Dakar Rally.
