Congratulations to Kostas Chatzimichalis for getting our 701RR to the podium on the ‘beast’ category at Serres Rally Raid. Big lady for this type of rally, the terrain was tight and difficult, just like we’d like it, to continue stressing the bike parts to the maximum. Kit performed flawlessly, 8k racing kms and still counting ? . Although this race does not favour big bikes, and make no mistake, even though this is a light bike for the fuel that it can carry, it is no match for an EXC450, Kostas was able to finish every single day. We have some aces up our sleeves to transform the bike into other, lighter forms and we will tease you later this week. One thing for sure: We are looking forward to seeing Kosta in the sands of Africa and eventually in Senegal. We will support him fully to that end.
As always there are more people behind this project and we would like to thank all of them. Rally Adventures for sharing their immense knowledge on Rally Bikes, Vanasche Motorsports for supplying the bike with the best billet accessories, Perun Moto for getting us upgrades, Highway Dirt Bikes for their indestructible handguards, Motoproworks for the two sided decal work and Carbon Fox Sp z o.o. for the indestructible skid plate.
