Oh I agree - the EXC isn't perhaps the best basis from which to build a dedicated rally bike... simply that Yamaha, Sherco, Aprilia, Gas Gas et al* are all building their rally bikes around an existing (enduro) platform?

If KTM can pull it off (there is no question of can of course, rather will it be affordable to mere mortals!), then it does open up a huge potential for the adventure/trail rider if a customer version is ever offered...

Then I'm sure we'll also see a 450cc version of Yamaha's WR250R... here's hoping!
