They are also reasonably light, considering the overall wet weight at 228 lbs, and they meet the Euro-3 emissions. I'd say that they are part of the overall "package" of the Freeride. Given that the 350/500 have a single, large silencer, KTM certainly could have designed the Freeride that way - but they didn't.
I'd reinforce the subframe to carry Rotopax, and find some way to design a larger primary tank that isn't just between the top frame rails.
If none of this works, I'd buy a 350 EXC and remap it to a Freeride (minus the cam?).
