There must be some math formula that justifies why we love digging up dirt, throwing up rocks and twigs, splashing water everywhere, making cool exhaust noises and playing in mud and sand on our KTMs. We need a PhD student to tackle this one using some form of multidimensional regression analysis and quantum theory

I can remember doing similar things with smaller toys when I was a little boy and I still love it....................and what is wrong with that?

Or 1% and 7%, if I had got my units right...

Well... maybe not so mathematecally accurate...

I think it was "parts per million"... perhaps "particles per meter"...? or maybe even passing "peppered" mates...??!

Whatever the correct formula might be Pat... i think his point is adequately illustrated by the the graphic photo, moreso than the graphics of his questionable physics...

Nope,

What it shows to me is that the 950 SE requires more mass (gravel) flow to accelerate out of a corner, not necessarily any quicker.

The issue is not how fast you come out of a corner on these bikes, it is how much gravel and rocks you can throw up on your competition

Black Dog Cycle Works KTM 950 990 Adventure Super Enduro SE skid plate bash plate I like the 2 into 1, wonder if it works for a bike that is ridden normally (read 'limp wristed') and not thrashed? If it doesn't work, at least it ticks the 'mine is tricker than yours' box. Then you go & buy a second can and revert to a twin system???
