About $150-$175 or so I?d guess with shipping. I?m obviously Canadian so it?s a little different for me.

I?m getting it with the GasGas fittings and the KTM fittings. I figure if my buddies pass me ten bucks or so every time I pull some dents it?ll pay itself off. And it?s cheaper than buying a new pipe.

I like it better than the heat and torch method because this actually straightens the neck out properly too so your pipe fits back on the bike after a big dent. Which a torch can?t do.

After reading back through my post, I realize it may have come off a little more harshly than I intended.

I LOVE my 2011. It is absolutely perfect for me in just about every way possible. So the fact that they're making a brand new bike, 8 years later, that's very similar, is very cool. If someone is looking for a brand new bike that's a little shorter, a little smaller, and REALLY shines in technical riding, I think the Ranger is going to nail that niche, certainly seems like better than the Xtrainer and Freeride.

I just think that if you already have a 2010-2011, it's probably not gonna be worth it to upgrade.

Mine is a 2006 and I really like it...
I'd like the e-start and the lower seat height of the Ranger but I don't ride too much hours with my bike, so why buy a new one? ;-(

If you want to keep believing that just make sure you never get a chance to ride an '18.. I did.. What a mistake! Now I'm the proud owner of a brand new bike!

You're probably right, which is why I should avoid test riding an '18.
