You will need a better stator. I think XRs only sells a glass lens that fits a halogen bulb into the stock number plate. I have one on my bike.

I really hate no kickstater since I got stuck with a dead battery on a DRZ one time. KTM could keep the battery and starter for all I care. It is a desert bike, keep it simple.

KTM kickstart?

Does the new KTM Baja have one? I would add it myself if it did not have it. Also would like a factory 200watt stator, so my XR lights would run on it. I am tired of waiting for a CRF600X.
