hey, an oil gauge!

I like it a lot, but according to what I've read, it's not coming to the states...at least not this year. I sure like the 5+ gallon fuel tank and being able to see the engine.

I'd a bought an SE. but at 52 and 5'10" with bad hammies and knees, I can barely get my leg over the 990.

If they do bring it to the USA
 
I'd trade in my '06 950 SM for one of those. A real seat, real instruments in the dash like a grownup's bike. I like the bigger tank and small windshield. I thought the SM was ugly till I rode one. It works so well that I started to like the looks too.

I love it and will certainly consider it for my next bike. That's if they make it available in Canada by then.

I've had my 950SM for a year. It works great, but I still think it's ugly! :huh

Kind of like a V-Strom that got squashed between two trucks. :puke1

Chuckracer 02-12-2009 09:04 PM

...and came out looking better! (Must have been two really nice trucks...).

I'm glad it's not coming here, cause I really like it and can't afford another bike. I'm happy w/ my SM.

I'd like to see the head light and cowl on an SE, might look alright.

I like it, but not a big fan of the black swingarm.

What do you think of this photo from KTM?
