Comfort vs off-road capability

I know which is more important to me. That's why I have an HP2. Between those two I might have to try the KTM. Richard.

hpn tank

The HPN tank is by far the best thing I have done to my hp2e. I put a upgraded progressive spring in my forks and heavier fork oil with less air gap. This helped quite a bit. Richard.
