The new one will have to be good to make me want to part-ex my R, I know the jury is still out, but maybe with a decent Akro, engine bars, bash plate, pivot pegs etc it will be ok? Though I agree that KTM seem to be following the Triumph Explorer, GS, Ducati Multistrada, Super Ten herd with big power and gadgets - maybe the R version will retain its dirt bias and history back to the Dakar - or maybe they just want to sell more bikes..............

If we make it to the show, I'll post a report and some pics.
Looking forward to your RR, good luck and tell us asp whats going on???? If you cross the Alps in November we will change your name to HannibalD
