Clear as mud

Edit: Cleared up. DRjoe's statement was mistaken.

KTM Basel = Quest kit.

Winna produces the 700RR kit in Oz.

Completely separate developments, no parts shared.

I'm not crazy about the looks of high-viz but I can't argue with the results. The zombies see me more often on the road and that helps keep me alive.
