The S10 has its strong points and I own one, but its drawbacks in the dirt (principally weight) have been well-documented in almost every road test that have been published. To continue to think that these comments are not well-grounded or specific enough is just sticking your head in the sand.

With the reports of the 2013 GS being better in every way than the 2012 GS, the gap between it and S10 is going to widen even more. And now with KTM producing a more street friendly 1190 while still retaining it's dirt superiority over the others, it looks like a redesign of the S10 will be needed sooner than later.
