I don't know what all the parts are off of but if there's one think KTM is good at is building parts bin bikes, and there's nothing wrong with that.

BTW, the GasGas pampera was a similar idea as well as the Sherco X-ride. Don't remember specs on the GG but the x-ride with a 290cc two stroke. MSRP 7999 US
