Default KTM 2017 Sneak Peek. GG to play catch-up

More weight reduction. Suspension updates. Some air, some not. Mikuni carb. Much more.

Great that KTM is keeping the 2 strokes alive.

I don't like the huge side plates.
They will look like crap when worn in.

Now translate them to AUD, and add a premium for the six days model.. and some more to add the protection required, factor in replacement of the light weight paper thin pipe, the best part of a grand to get the suspension dialled in.. and you're near 20K for a piece of machinery that is intended to be throw around in the bush. Outrageous!

They were always on the expensive side regarding parts, we have a saying here: "You broke a screw on your shiny KTM ? It's going to cost you 100 euros."
