Anybody have the pleasure of riding one yet?
A local dealer has one in Kawi green color (?!?) and I plan on demoing (hey, I just made a new word!) it this week. Looks like a bike I could get into LOTS of trouble on!

(?!?) is my expression of shock and surprise that another manufacturer would use that exact color. I grew up riding Kawi dirt bikes, so I like it.

I just saw that pic on KTM's website. Impressive that a manufacturer would invite litigation by posting such cool displays of lawbreaking! Not even a disclaimer in sight- "professional rider on closed course, do not attempt, blah, blah"

That is how KTM's are. The dirtbikes are the same way (that bike is pretty much a dirtbike with street tires ).
