Seems like to release dual sport bikes with not-ready-for-prime-time ABS was something that the manufacturers should not have done. ESPCIALLY KTM which has such a long history of high performing dirt bikes.
Well said. This does appear to be the case.

I haven't read all the posts, so i'll keep it brief. If I forget to turn off the ABS on my XChallenge on level dirt it's a pain in the ass/inconvenience/exciting. If I forget to turn it off descending steep rocky trails, it is plain dangerous.
