I beg to differ sir!

You can apologize to me when we meet while I'm out riding my Adventure R in 2014!
I see what you are saying, but if BMW can sell 5-10 times as many R1200GSs depending on the market, I think KTM made the right move by changing their big twin to compete more directly with it, even if the price went up a bit.

Lots of riders who own big twins also own more than one bike, cars, and way too much other shit they could give up before letting a couple of % higher price stop them from buying a 150 HP big enduro bike.
Currently going RTW on a KTM 690 Rally, trip blog:
