Yes, I am not brand loyal and I did not want to like the Tiger XC - but I did.
I went to by a KTM 990 SE but also considered F800GS, Super10, and 2012 Vstrom 650 which I wanted to like.

This is what I ran up against:
KTM not to be had at any dealership in OZ apparently. In between year models.
F800 GS Did not like the ergos, felt like I was on a Shetland pony the bar reach was waaay too short.
Super10 to heavy and too high looks like a praying mantis.
Vstrom = Camry. Did everything ok, good economy, but not exiting at all and well meh.

Tried a non accessorised Tiger, then an XC with a some fruit and thought not bad at all but was unsure on which to take.
The XC was +$1000 but came with crash bars, alloy skid plate, all on road costs and some other stuff and I was offered an excellent trade in price. Deal done.

Since buying I am even more convinced I chose correctly and KTM dealers in OZ can all KMA.
