    Fwiw, when I asked KTM's East Region rep at the Delaware supermoto demo day, he was pretty confident that the US would be getting them in July.

    Hey, this post was supposed to draw out information from around the world, not just from my riding buddies. Don't worry, Walter and Chris, I'll let you fellows have a ride! :lol3 :lol3

    Hasn't anyone seen one in Australia? Austria? Germany?

    They were tested in Lesotho (mountain kingdom) in South Africa, awesome awesome. GPS tested at 200km/h which is insane - considering Lesothos roads.

    Last Sunday we had 'Orange Day' here in the Netherlands. There was a preproduction SE. Yep, it's a beaut. The people from KTM NL told us that production starts at the end of may, early june.

    Not here in Australia yet, the dealers are saying they expect the 990 Adv, 950SM & the SE to arrive in May, but from what KTMax has just said above, maybe their dreaming.:cry

    Latest estimates for availability in the US is September 2006 as an "early 2007 model". Still no confirmation on price in the US. Also sounds like another very limited production run...so get your name on a list now if you want a shot at one.

    My dealer told me the other day that they expect the R in New Jersey in June. I think that it wishful thinking, since it hasn't yet shown up in Europe on the open market.

    Anyone in Austria, Italy, France or Germany seen one in a dealer yet?

    I'll be first in line for those fork protectors and headlight assembly on my black 950 ADV. The orange "splatter" will look darn good on the front of a shiny black model.....with a shiny black SM high fender.

    I have to stop modifying this thing......when will the madness end?

    The fork guards don't look like they'll bolt on to me.. they have KTM' s OTHER bolt pattern, not the one found on the 950 and new 640.

    Could be wrong but sure looks that way to me. See www.ktmimages.com
