I wonder sometimes, maybe race-bred suspension isn't what the bulk of adventure riders want? If it was, there would be a lot more 990 Adventures sold, I think they have sold about 16 in Australia this year?
The only reasons the KTM's dont sell is

1. their fuckn ugly
2. maintenance is notoriously a pain in the ass
3. there are no dealers
4. mpg is shit compared to beemers

pros-

1. they make a little more power
2. their suspension system is king for a true 50/50 bike

its my opinion so take it with a grain..........
