    KTM just has a better attitude than the rest of the bike manufacturers. Who else would be bold enough to make these videos?

    I like how they make a point of showing the blanking plate on the desmogged engine. :lol3

    Diggin the video. Still find the styling of the bike to be iffy. Something about the tank/shroud/fairing looks spotty.

    I always wondered why KTM didn't try to ad a bit of retro into their SD tank?

    Just my humble O.

    It looks really nice on the video but I wonder how it will look in real life.

    1. Stock bike will not make any sound at all. Maybe if you listen carefully you can hear the water pump seal wearing off. Akras will cost 1000 € and akra-map will use all fuel in this planet. Cops will confiscate those akras on sight.

    2. That headlight will get you killed instantly. Maybe not because you can't see but because the old lady in her car can't see you and your matte black gear. Okay production headlight will be something different but it will be ruined by poor wiring. Then you will kill yourself while doing 100 mph in the middle of the night, while using the ultra cool tinted mirror visor and headlight that gets 10 Volts.

    3. I agree with Xmoto. It needs to be ridden like in the video. It will look ridiculous when a big fat man (like me)drives it slowly in the traffic.

    4. I would still buy one if I had the €.

    Well they certainly don't believe in full face helmets do they? That was funny Walter.

    Yeah, my favorite thing I learned about KTM this year is that no one who doesn't ride is allowed to work in development. That's cool. They get it.

    Not to judge the choices people make in their bikes, lifestyles or food (and quantity) they eat - but I am certainly willing to share my opinion that the Harley commercial - the second in particular - is absolutely ridiculous.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>

    I hope the marketing person that created it got canned. I don't have anything to do with it and it embarrasses me!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I will also admit I love KTM but also wouldn't mind having a Harley (despite that crazy add).<o:p></o:p>

    I like how that first HD video shows how well their bike takes jumps... wait wait no... That was just a pretty minor rippled in the pavement that the suspension couldn't soak up

    I'll be interested to see what that production version of the new Super Duke looks like.

    That little front fairing bit/camera mount has to go in lieu of a 'real' light
    Gotta pick up red lights and yellow ones too.
    Though the Akro stuff won't be stock, it would be cool to see it come with a similarly separated exhaust set up.


    Hopefully dealers will offer purchasers discounts on future rear tire purchases - they will need it
