Interesting. I always felt the 50mm WP Extreme forks that are original on early models were fantastic, second to none. I thought perhaps KTM switched for economic and not performance reasons, being able to use the same basic forks across their range instead of having a different fork just for the 640.
Anyway, the bike looks great, and has the extremely rare "wild frame kickstand tab".
