What is this 800V2 you speak of? (And yeah. It was evident to me he was very skilled and not over-matched by the bike. Still. His lane discipline was sloppy and he made some hairball passes. Just sayin'. And hey. I know hairball passes. :))

As if none of us have ever ridden like an asshole....

Riding like a dick? Sure. Over his skill level? I think he was owning that bike and road.



Swung by my local KTM dealer - Santa Monica CA (whom I've never like from my prior 950 SM experiences) they said they aren't ordering any. They had a leftover RC1 and 4 or 5 dirtbikes on the floor.

Ktm can make as many super cool bikes as they want, they need to work on their dealer network in the states BIG TIME.

I enjoyed it too. Jealous we can't ride like that around here. Remember most of the whiners are from North America and don't understand how the rest of the world is accustomed to the spirited riding/driving of bikes and cars.

Can't wait to try one out. Not available here until late summer/fall this year. Gives me more time to save for a down payment.

...now crossing it up sideways down a dirt road with the front wheel in the air and the back wheel spinning...

Lets see the important side of the equation!


I wanna see a video that shows me why this thing is better than a v-strom?

About a year ago he went to austria to test ride the 800 while in the development stage. That's all he said. No pics taken no other info revealed apart from that it will be light and about 100hp.

Says they canned the 800 here fwiw, how light could they really make a v2 800 and still keep offroad strength, long term durability and fuel capacity anyway? and it would just take sales from the 1190R...

Some of us are lusting after just such a bike. 400 wet. 100 hp. Big tank.

KTM would have a big smile on their face if they saw it,
You wouldn't see a Gay S being ridden like that,
While I agree his road craft leaves something to be desired it looks q right hoot to ride, if this weather ever picks up

I may respectfully disagree. KTM would never approve of this because it basically stamps all riders as hooligans, think about it for a second. Totally puts me off because even such idiots get basic healthcare, most likely public healthcare when they get in an accident, just saying.
