I could be wrong (wouldn't be the first time... ), but I think he's asking about the riding style of the rider (i.e., putting his foot down in a turn on pavement), not the bike.

If that's the question, my answer is, no, I try not to unless I absolutely have to. The first ten years of riding bikes for me was all motocross, so I do have the habit pretty ingrained, but I've tried really hard to break it (lest I break something else, like my ankle...).

Whenever I'm riding pavement, I try to corner in the 'sportbike' style, partly because it's more effective (on pavement...) and partly because it gets me out of the old habits of trying to turn like I'm on dirt when I'm not.

I think KTM was prolly trying to emphasize the 'Supermoto' aspect of the bike in the pic, but it's not a style I would personally emulate.

I reckon you could be on to something...

First off, it's a marketing picture, not a recommendation of "how to ride".
Secondly, some details within the pic give some clues as to why he's got his foot out. It's wet, he's just ridden across painted stripes (and those are like ice when wet), and it seems he's making a quick right/left off the main road towards the camera. The contact patch of the front tire is very small, and not in line with the rear, so he's accelerating out of his line-change, and maybe saving a front-end wash-out at the same time. Who knows? When you put out your foot on pavement, it usually means you're at the edge of disaster or coming back from it. The boots he's wearing wouldn't last long riding SM-style, as those are touring boots with a thin sole.
Or not.

Looks like they're tricking us. Parking lot speed, he's picking up his foot after just starting out. Notice the lack of spray off the tires. He's barely moving. I do that all the time in parking lots with my Buell, I want to be ready for when I clunk into the steering stops.

Europe,(or maybe Oz)probably where they ride on the left side of road.
Nothing I see out of the ordinary.

I do that all the times

at low speed I sharp corners, on wet tarmak, when you think you may loose traction.

Maybe he is just standing still. Holding the bike up and to the right with his right leg. Using photoshop you can make a 1/2" gap on the boot sole and blur the backround.

Or.... it just sells more bikes making it look all motardy.

As we can see on pictures, the pegs position and riding position is closer to the SuperDuke than the SM or SMR.

On a motocross or Supermotard, when entering a corner you move your entire body forward and put the inside leg and foot parallele to the forks trying to load the front as much as possible.

He also appears to be looking at the curb instead of down the road, which means he's about to crash.
