Seriously though, neither of them weigh four-hundred-anything.

I weighed my 950 minus the tool kit, and any farkles, but with a full tank of gas- it was right at 500 lb.

The problem is in the design of the centerstand, not the weight of the bike.

I have a Honda that is more than 100 lbs heavier than my KTM, yet is far easier to put on the centerstand.

I think they use the same center stand for the standard ans the s model. Which makes it tougher to get up.
