I'm not suprised that their is 1 on the street in SD, as they have some kind of distributor / importer / factory shop, not sure what it is but some kind facility where they test distribute bikes & parts. I only know what a couple dealers & other people who have ones on order March - April, tons of snow on the ground up here anyway

That's what my dealer quoted me, only 1 street Ktm dealer in MT ( Missoula ) or go to Boise SLC Spokane etc not worth the drive trying to save $200-, I think theirs good chance they will all be sold out in a couple months

That bike was parked out front of the KTM office in Murrieta, CA I live a mile from there and have an office on the same street. There are always cool bikes parked out front.

I sat on it for awhile at a bike show, it was a very neutral and comfy position. Much more comfortable than any other standard/street fighter I tried.

Thanks all the positive feed back, total 100% BS about the electronics, if it were not for that most the new bikes HP4. 1000 etc would be nearly unrideable,
Even the McWilliams said he could not beat the braking ABS system, hi sides in motoGP are almost eliminated because of the advanced traction control systems, this is 1 rare area I feel we all can benefit from
