Imagine adding 100lbs and more (engine) rotating mass to a KTM 690.

When S2R1000 prices come down...
It's not over 400, probably around 375. There's another one of these that has a 999 engine and not much heavier. It makes 140 hp and around 75 lb/ft of torque. Heck, my 1098 Streefighter in full street trim only weighs about 425.
