And what do you mean by "not enough" woodchuckexc? There always seems to be 1 or 2 available in the FM, so it seems KTM imported just enough. The real mystery is why it wasn't so popular. And mystery #2 is why used HP2s command such a much higher premium than SEs.

My take on the popularity.... when they first came out I went to the dealer and my thought was ,,,, that is the stupidest "dirt" bike in the world. I resisted the offers to ride one because I just didn't think a big v twin dirt bike made sense. Once I actually did ride one I understood!! I couldn't believe how well the bike worked on the trails and rough.
