Yep, my unicorn 390 would definitely be the enduro version. Putting on all the other crap and the addition of a low pipe just ruins the whole reason for having this bike for me.

Yes, that might be the case. The '06/'07 S-model is basically a KLX300 in the suspension design and setup...just a hair more weight. Maybe an apples-n-oranges comparison to the '09 and later.
