    Really? I was told KTM Australia had sold out of their allocation and no more were due until April.

    Yup thats what I was told as well, however the dealer said you may be able to find one in a dealership somewhere, with the help of my inmates, I found one at bolton motorcycles which had a deposit on it and the guy wasn't sure if he wanted it. (it was still in transit) he dropped out and i got it. apparently dealers have about 40 of them coming in now but they all have deposits on them, how badly do you want one though? Cos I found a dealership in SA that has one on the floor kessner motorcycles, it was still available 2 days ago

    A month and a half and no one has managed to take a picture somewhere near where they live with a bike all of you seem to be in love with. Hmmmm! Marketing guys bored in the KTM offices perhaps!:bueller

    This is reasonably near where I live (if you count getting a ferry from Northern ireland to Scotland near as it's only a 22 mile crossing). :D
