My local dealer has a 350 on the floor and said he will not be allocated a 500 this year either from KTM. Reports say this 350 has all of 45hp, which sounds pretty close to last SMR. Bike will be used here on a island, not much anything over 55mph and mostly pavement duty. Looking at buying 17" supermoto rims for it as well to keep miles off the knobbies and sticky tires under me. I just don't want to buy the 350 and wished for the grunt of the 500 later down the road.....hmmmmmmm
I think the 350 would be a blast with SM wheels. I own a 350 and they do haul ass. If you want more grunt it's 700 bucks for TR 390 kit.
So I say do it.
