I dearly love my CRF250L.....but I might have to learn to love KTM...what? Well I was reading an issue of Motorcycle Travel & Leisure at Barnes & Noble. It had a discussion with a top level exec of KTM about the 390 naked bike they are making in their Indian facility. He was totally up front saying there is a "Dual Sport" version of the 390 (actually 375cc) IN PROCESS! The 390 that comes to the USA in October is 44 horsepower....so...imagine a CRF-like bike...a whole bunch lighter...with TWICE the horsepower.....hmmmm sounds tasty
