I agree, i think KTM are working on a design that will be capable of dominating for the next 5-8 years,if Despres and Coma do stick with KTM ,they will need equipment capable of winning ,Look how long the old LC 4/New LC 4 motors lasted,and if the rule change wasn't pushed apon them how long would it of been before they would update the new LC 4 690 ?
everyone knows KTM have dominated for the last 8 or 9 years, but part of that success is having the best riders on the planet riding their equipment.
the privateers will follow who provides the best backup support ,and KTM win that hands down too,as no other manufactuer even supports any privateer.
