Sorry Steve, no seed money. I'm saving up for some tires for both KTM's. Good luck with that though.


As for the 800, I've seen the 2 street bikes they built with them. The GS is just a dream so far. They have to be working on one though.
The X challenge has 53 hp and 44 ft/lb of torque
The 800 in sport trim is 85 hp and 63 ft/lb of torque
Both are liquid cooled. I think they have a heck of an opportunity here to make an outstanding bike. User friendly, not too tall, not too heavy, not too wide, with a decent amount of power and road manners to get you to the places you really want to ride. I think it could be a great all arounder with a heavy slant toward dirt.
