Let's just hope KTM USA gets their shit together and brings the bike to USA and enables enough dealers to get the bike on their showroom floors. I recall KTM a few years ago requiring US dealers to purchase a certain minimum number of street bikes per year in order for them to continue to carry the street bike line. As a result of this I think some US dealers had to drop the street KTMs from their showrooms.
