Fast KTMs?

So this is what I don't get....
A lot of ADV'rs want these state of the art bikes, the fastest KTM's on the planet, tons of grunt and superb handling, able to go from crate to race course, then add all the latest gizmos and 'farkles' ( I hate that word). Then they ride like old men. "Oh we just want to take a liesurely ride, stop and take pictures, smell the roses, we're just not in a hurry." WTF????

Why are all the manufacturers building faster and more capable bikes when half of the riders just can't and won't ride them to their capability?

It's been proven over and over a guy tends to ride about the same speed regardless of the bike. So why do they lust after the biggest and the baddest, buying the latest state of the art bikes?

Or why do they buy a lite-bike for trails and pile shit on it to tour? Or buy a great big tourer and try to ride it like a dirtbike?

I'm just not getting it.
