It sure would be good to know how much oil it will hold. I'm assuming it will be a wet sump motor? Also, any idea on when it will be available in the USA, and will there actually be an EXC version for us, or another
XC-W?

oil

I'm sure HTR will have a larger oil cooler design for it within a month as well as Acerbis will have a larger fuel tank. Time to gear up the CAD and Solidworks 3D program boys.

My FE390 FI has been perfect and my FE570 before was just as perfect. -20F
90F, rain, snow and even sun spots and it is always spot on.

I am really impressed that KTM managed to reduce the total weight by more than 5 lbs even though they went from a simple carb to EFI.

Just read a review on the biggest Austrian motorcycle website, they are talking about a new era and by far the best KTMs yet. If you don't speak Deutsch you can Google translate it:

Sweet video here:

The downside to FI is the lack of cheap aftermarket tanks. Hopefully there will be some big discounts on leftover 2010s/2011s this summer

I'm not sure why it needs a fuel pump when the tank is located higher than the FI?
