I think that statement is quite a stretch.

I kinda like the look of the new ktm. I love boxers but the new wc just doesn't cut it for me, too much of a "plastic" look. A buddy rode the wc and said the wc boxer was leaps and bounds better the the 12 gs in every aspect (I value his opinion).
Even though they are labelled "adv" bikes they are all sorta different purpose bike. I see the ktm as the only one capable or semi designed for off road, the others designed for roads (gravel orpaved).
My two cents
I wasn't saying one is better than the other, all I'm saying is, was the test equal?
If you load a KTM down, I'm not saying it's better or worse, it all depends on how high the weight is, and the tires do make a difference.
