Now if KTM would pull their head out and sell these street legal in the USA I would be all over one of these !

Hell I am still waiting on the 690RR - Adventure. KTM give us what we want !

I noticed they said Coma was in peak form, shame he pulled out of the comming Dakar because of his shoulder injury.
