And the KTM is also extremely unreliable and often can only be fixed by just a few guys on the planet!

The rotax is super reliable-having 10% more hp is really exciting and I hope doesn't change the reliability.

The old Xchallenge with a 6th speed, 10% more power, 400 watts of electrical output and Ohlins shock... I wonder if the engine would be a direct swap...
