New KTM 800cc prototype?

A testrider for KTM crashed into a car yesterday in St. Florian am Inn, near the HQ at Mattighofen.

I could only find one small pic of the burning wreck, however one source (a bad, free tabloid called "heute") says "Franz L. (39) picked up the 800cc prototype in Mattighofen tuesday afternoon".

A rumor, nothing more, and an unreliable source. But whatever, here's the pic:

The rider was unharmed, BTW.

Very interesting. From the way the story looks, I don't think the source gained anything by revealing that KTM was testing a new 800 or anything. Might be something to this.

Thanks for the heads up
