Give that a try when you get your hands on each of these machines. Lay em over....then pick em up.

The difference was significant for me. But maybe I'm just a putz....I donno.

p.s. I'll happily receive either one as a free gift.
Actually, that is a good point. My KTM is so tall, and lays so flat, it can be very difficult to pick up. I would have guessed the BMW would also be tough, but it is lower in height and CG.
