Potential to be the best light weight ADV bike...
I think you are missing the point of this bike. It is not meant for that type of riding.
Why would you want to add 100lbs of weight to a bike that was designed to be as light and maneuverable as possible?
If it even makes it to the states, which if it doesn't, KTM is crazy, would make the ultimate girl bike, IMHO!
Watch the video posted above, and that is the type of riding this bike was made for.
Think of your ADV riding more along the lines of exploring the 100 acres of woods down the street you have always wanted to, but your big bike, with bags and such always keep you from doing it.
