First time I've seen KTM at the international motorcycle show in like the last 5 years this year. Which was nice.

Great post... Great news...

That's what we need is great sales for a great little company that has huge upside.

Let's hope they throw away some more cash at R&D for a smaller displacement twin motor that can be used in a midsized Adventure, A midsized Duke and a midsized Enduro.

And for a US inspired street bike. For gods sake please take the 1190 motor and put it into a street tracker frame and call it an E-XR 1200.

Just ask Monster to help give you some design tips like they did the Harley.

In fact just put me on the order list for ID# 0001.

You'd think / hope that the success of the Japanese brands have had with smaller displacement bikes here in the US would be an indicator of promise for other brands.
That said I'm all over the 1190 ADV, even though many here on ADV find the thing blasphemous.
