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 :D :D).

Hmm... I didn't notice the brake/chain switch. Not as hokey as the left side kick start, good thing it has electric start too.
Tried to test ride the thing yesterday, no dice. Turns out the owner was just riding it (he has another dealership in Akron that carries KTM). There is a KTM dealer just outside of Columbus (reynoldsburg) and I will attempt to snag a ride on one there.

Nice, but better is coming!

Nice bike, but the one to have is the upcoming Duke 950 v-twin. With 115 rwhp and 349 lbs dry, it will be a world beater.
