Another example. My KTM was half the price of my Ducati despite only 5 k miles. The KTM has . Better brakes, better power, better suspension, same tach ( both don't hav a functional one). Better throttle response, better tires better wheels better accessories. I know the triumph is supposed to be better then the Duc but I suspect it isn't close to the KTM.
And for the reliability crowd, the KTM has been much better than my KLR and XRs . Only the Superhawk made it this man miles (albeit with more maintenance ) without repairs.
I have spent about 1k on the KTM for brackets, skid plates, aux fuel tank and a luggage rack but still the best value in bikes I hav had.
