That is true enough, I'd just be a bit surprised that they wouldn't want to charge at least a small premium for a niche bike like this? (edit. ah, just saw that price was PLUS VAT - there's a 20% 'premium' right there x)

Regardless - if they can build a run of these for that sort of money, then as has been said above - this really is a fantastic option for the privateer racer - WR450 engine (and thus readily available spares), tasty suspension, and a beautifully designed tank and fairing kit... it certainly makes the KTM Factory 450 look VERY expensive!

Hell I'm tempted myself!
