IMO this is what KTM should have done with the low bike right from the start. The stock bike is already excellent but these wheels & tires show just how much better it can be on tarmac.

Lighter handling, quicker steering, much more stability and feedback when leaned over and subjectively twice as much grip. Very confidence inspiring. This is by far the best mod I've done. Simply awesome...




This is a 2003 S bike lowered to 'regular' by swapping out all components involved. The overall height of the bike dropped another 15mm at the seat with the 19/17" wheels. The lower it gets, the better it gets...

Looks great

where did you get the seat from?

That's a KTM supermoto front fender and a Touratech rear tailbag. Thanks, I love this bike.

Images from recent Baja trip

This was after a few beer when we were camping at Laguna Ojos de Liebre



Predictably, this was the bike a few moments later... ;)



This was along the coast around Ejidro Erendira on the Pacific side



On the way home I saw this and had to take a photo...



I would be doing a disservice to the board if I didn't include this little beauty... On the beach in Puertocitos. . .

However the 950 isn't over-rated and you can ride it longer

I know, I know..

I still want both though. I do have the feeling that both would leave me poor and worn out, but a hero in my own mind!

I got to take my friends 950 out for a ride a few months ago, man, what an awesome bike!!! Sound freaking awesome with the Remus pipes too!
