Give your 950/990 Adventure the looks and the practicality of a rally bike with a reasonably priced kit.
Let us set the record straight! This bike is the one that gave to the public ‘Dakar’ looks and off road capabilities beyond belief for its size. A winning Dakar bike, a formidable traveler and one of the best all round bikes in the world. Let us reveal the true beast that is hiding in your 9×0 bike!
Back in May 2016, we were contacted by Christopher Cork (owner of Unit 31 fabrications, Aurora UK dealer) with a request to make a navigation tower for his 950 Rally Bike. Christopher is no stranger to us, he has participated in many rallies and has five podiums in the Twin Cylinder class:
2015 Hellas Rally – 2nd place
2016 Tuareg Rallye – 3rd place
2017 Tuareg Rallye – 1st place
2017 Morocco Desert Challenge – 1st place
2018 Sahari Rally (Algeria) – 2nd place
He is one of a kind, one that likes big bikes, so he is the perfect rider to develop such a kit. Fast forward a couple of months and we developed the navigation tower with Christopher while he developed the side panels and, of course most of the parts on his bike are custom.
So… Why are we here? Because we tested the kit (well, Christopher did…), we installed it on the 9x0RR #1 bike and we are now able to offer this kit to you. The kit includes:
KTM Rally Factory high beam (fully legal), can be upgraded to a Baja Squadron Sport or Pro at extra cost.
KTM Rally light support
KTM Rally stone guard
RGB LED position light
with 7 colour combinations.
OEM Dzus fasteners
Qucik release fasteners with return springs and retaining washers so that you don’t lose them.

We are actively involved in the Rally scene since 2013. We were one of the first companies in the field that had access to the KTM Carbon tower. So much, that we understood that this is so complex, that no ‘local garage’ can replicate it. It must be done by a proper, composite company. Thus, remaining true to the brand’s heritage, we designed a navigation tower like no other. Easy cable access, strong yet flexible to protect your valuable gear, this tower can be transformed either to a digital setup using HighwayDirtbikes unique iPad and iPhone cases, or to a rally cockpit using the winning Aurora Rally Equipment products. Materials are chosen carefully to allow the assembly to be strong, yet flexible so that your equipment is always protected, even after a crash. See our ‘Tech’ section for more information and pictures of how the tower performs during a crash! The only tower for 701 in the market that comes with preinstalled special rivet nuts making installation a real joy!
Do you lose functionality? Well, for starters we must remember that this kit started in the rally field. But don’t be afraid, people keep arguing that a rally bike is not a traveler’s bike and vice versa. We tend to disagree. A rally rider needs to have a light bike, one that can be serviced easily, a bike that can be ‘undressed’ with ease. Same goes for a traveler if you think about it. You need the bike to be light and agile, so you can control it easier and to add more luggage yet need to service it with ease and have reliable, proofed parts even when you are in the middle of nowhere. If there is a challenge on the road, you need to fix it as soon as possible and continue your journey to your destination. So, in effect, the needs are almost the same.
Try as we might we could not avoid the switch relocation. The KTM main switch is moved to the tower in a specific location. That means that you lose the handlebar lock. This can be overcome with the following solution: You can buy another KTM switch from KTM, remove the electrical part (2 Phillips screws) and bolt the switch to the top triple clamp. You have another key for the lock, but you have a fully locked bike should you wish to.
Should you want to race your bike, we have multiple solutions available. From toggle main switches, to back up plans should things go wrong. Just ask and we will be happy to help.
Everything comes pre-assembled
Ask before you buy because other ‘bolt on’ kits you’d have to assemble even all the Dzus fasteners with their retaining clips. In Aurora 9×0, everything is pre-assembled. The kit can be installed in a few hours easily on the bike and off you go!
