Thank you very much. That is exactly the kind of anecdotal information that helps me get a "feel" for the bike's capabilities. I'm sure that if the WP suspension is built with common EU components, I can tune it. Wheels and tires should also not be a problem. A larger tank may be problematic. Hopefully, if KTM really does bring the bike to the US, they will realize that we often demand more range for our riding and offer a larger Hardparts tank. If not, perhaps Acerbis will.
Do you happen to know if there are locations on the frame to anchor racks for soft panniers to carry some gear on and below the pillion seat? TIA.
