- lack of rear subframe (to hold any luggage)
- lack of oil capacity
- minimal dealer service network

all of these can be solved, with the exception of the last one. even that one can be mitigated somewhat by the fact that the bike is 90% KTM.

if you want to make it a 610, you'll have to add passenger footpegs.
