Why bother making it a 700-800? The LC-8 engine as a 950 could be reduced by 20 lbs thru a SOHC conversion and better casting tech that KTM now uses. Add a 2-1 stock exhaust, a plastic subframe/fuel tank and keep it SKINNY!!!

No reason they couldn't build a 90 HP version that gets far better MPG, need to carry less fuel for the same range and has proper ergos. I got pretty sick of the Ob/gyn groin splay forced on my by my SE!

If they had built a lighter, thinner Adv or SE I'd have bought one.
