I feel the Engineers did a superb job. Attacked areas where most complaints were centered on. And built a great bike. I am sure it is going to be a great performing bike. I like the looks. There is only so much they can do with a tank. Sure they tested all types of builds. You know dang well they don't want to look like a GS. But i am sure they went with what will work best performance wise functionality and ergo for this bike.
Of course time will tell. But I am glad KTM is making an effort one way or the other. Big bike or middle weight.
Burn out dont fade away!!
