I want a KTM just because of the commercial for the Duke or whatever it is.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

I like the pipe out the belly pan bit. Not sure it would work in the real world thou.

Chum...you'd suffer from the same as me. It'd take you a week to get it out of the crack of yer arse every time you wanted to get off

Look out Casey Stoner!!!

I agree BP, can't image the rear tyre would be all that impressed by the heat of that pipe.....

Put a decent donk in it, round off a few of those edges and maybe I'd be interested

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

YEah

Come on Dave give em a chance. They've only just got an engine to last more than 12 revs and you want curvey body panels

I remember the KTM's well from the 70's motocross days. It was always a toss up which would run out first. The petrol or the main bearings.
