    Nice!
    The new model includes white bodywork with limited edition Baja graphics and an orange powder-coated frame. It also includes Dunlop 908 RR tires, orange crash guards, LED auxiliary lights, suede-style seat, aluminum radiators guard, GPS base mount and SuperSprox aluminum steel sprocket. In addition, the Baja unit comes standard with a tank bag and rear waterproof luggage bag as well as fully adjustable front and rear WP suspension.

    That is awesome looking! As long as the price isn't equal to a 2012 + all of those accessories, then it'll be great! I might have to get some of those baja stickers

    That rear is a 908, but what is the front? It's not a 908.

    Ah yes, time to start making "limited editions" to clear out remaining 990 inventory so there aren't tons of them sitting on dealer floors when the new "Adventure" comes out. :norton

    Although, the orange frame and crashbar combo is cool looking. White plastic wouldn't look good past the first day for me. :lol3

    Are those auxillary lights tucked up under the front?

    Front tire looks like a D606.

    I like it. KTM USA website does NOT show that the bikes comes with the soft gear (or aux. lighting).

    Just trying to get alittle more market share.
    A complete bike might be more appealing to someone who wants to get into it. This Bike is targeted to the Noob.
    It's a perfect starbucks runner right out of the box.:rofl

    Looks nice, but lame. Needs gas capacity because sometimes the Pemix is out and you have to make it to the next one. Needs SE rims because running those will be a huge mistake on the road to Ganzaga, the road to San Fransquito, or most any other road you'd want a knob.... and fwiw, d908 rear is a pretty shitty knob for sand roads of which Baja is built. Thing never really hooks up and gives ya one of those constant swoosh right to left back to right waddle down the road. And the short boingers, gimme a fooking break. Suede seat is nice though except for the shape...

    Would be nice if it had a 2-1 exhaust, single front disk with upgraded reservoir, and a high front fender.
