Why yes, yes it did. If they'd have put a 400cc jug into an aluminum frame, and left all else as is, it would be an incredible do-all bike. Light enough, still ultra reliable, but enough top end and torque to do it all....without a radiator and water pump to take a dump on ya.

This 520 is an absolute grin-machine when it's running...but I knew full well for its age and the type of bike I'd be nickle-diming it, so I'm not really mad. It's a KTM, and they are demanding machines....don't care what anyone else's experience says, I know what my experience is and it's that they're demanding machines.

Do as I say, not as I do.
