Those complaining about looks; I find this kind of embarrassing. I never buy a dirt or adventure bike for the 'looks.' My wife would but not me.

So I'm not saying that the looks are great or even good, I'm saying I don't care.

KTMs have never been about the looks. Not a single one I've owned had panels that fit straight without unsightly gaps, didn't have ergos that needed complete overhauls and harsh suspension and even more sadistic seats (the devil lives in Mattinghofen, I swear he designs KTM seats until 2012).

But guess what? KTM fans DON'T CARE. "It's the motor stupid!" should be their corporate motto and that is why KTM has been able to compete from basically nothing to a major brand in a decade. An amazing feat.

If the 1190's motor made mediocre torque/hp THEN you'd see what revolt really is. Everything else is along for the ride; and better than it has ever been.

Just feeding trolls...
