Another reason to ride KTM's

KTM just has a better attitude than the rest of the bike manufacturers. Who else would be bold enough to make these videos?

I like how they make a point of showing the blanking plate on the desmogged engine.

Diggin the video. Still find the styling of the bike to be iffy. Something about the tank/shroud/fairing looks spotty.

I always wondered why KTM didn't try to ad a bit of retro into their SD tank?

Just my humble O.

But if you buy one you will ride like that... at least in your mind you will.

It looks really nice on the video but I wonder how it will look in real life.

1. Stock bike will not make any sound at all. Maybe if you listen carefully you can hear the water pump seal wearing off. Akras will cost 1000 and akra-map will use all fuel in this planet. Cops will confiscate those akras on sight.

2. That headlight will get you killed instantly. Maybe not because you can't see but because the old lady in her car can't see you and your matte black gear. Okay production headlight will be something different but it will be ruined by poor wiring. Then you will kill yourself while doing 100 mph in the middle of the night, while using the ultra cool tinted mirror visor and headlight that gets 10 Volts.

3. I agree with Xmoto. It needs to be ridden like in the video. It will look ridiculous when a big fat man (like me)drives it slowly in the traffic.

4. I would still buy one if I had the .

Well they certainly don't believe in full face helmets do they? That was funny Walter.

Yeah, my favorite thing I learned about KTM this year is that no one who doesn't ride is allowed to work in development. That's cool. They get it.
