If you own a GSA go ride a new GS it will surprise you how good it is, a proper modern motorcycle, punchy motor (until you ride a KTM tho) light and I imagine easy to live with,
back to the KTM, bonkers engine, goes ballistic after 5-6k an absolute blast to ride but
seat hard and made my ar#e go numb,
screen is noisy,
tried suspension in various modes and always felt too hard and cos it's electronic there is no fine adjustment, I think i would prefer standard stuff,
when "getting a shift on" it gets a bit light and a tad vague, would like to try one with michelin PR3 road tyres
I was quite dissapointed as I was really keen to try one,
these are my personal opinions of course, a friend has just bought one, has a few of the same issues which he will sort and he racks up the miles, (will use him as guinea pig) will wait and see and when the time comes I will try it again,
