Yeah, because it's always a good idea to have a more top-heavy, taller bike.
Especially when you are going to ride goat trails to Cabo solo...

white was, well, white and the minimal stickers was ok, but it just feels like it needs more "style" than a hard to read rear sticker group.
Bags are bags. etc
But yeah what bothered me was how low the bike was and how little information the "ktm vendors" knew. couple easy questions about the bike *crickets* ask if they have a hard parts catalog at the show *more crickets* can we go hang out on the top of the trailer in the seats and eat some of our fries *um, no, no one goes up there*.

no real info, well that was the whole show
I saw the bike there too. I asked the sales guy what made it special, he didn't know. IIRC it was a manufacturer's booth, staffed by sales staff from Bert's?

It had a 908 front tire, for the guy that asked earlier in the thread.

I thought the bike looked awesome, the white bodywork is cool.
The dry bag felt thinner than my Wolfman dry bag, too.

It is to Baja like the F650GS was to Dakar. Just sayin'.

PS There were people on top of the trailer when I was there.
