Here the problem will be: how many used GS's will the KTM dealers be able to relocate in order to sell the 1190 adv ??
Don't get me wrong, I like what KTM has done, an amazing step forward!
Personally I'm thinking Ducati will lose sales to KTM; Triumph and BMW to a much lesser extend.
In case of Southern Europe I'd imagine price playing a critical role.
