repost? see "ktm porn" thread. too lazy to find the link.
Lol. Nice edit. All it had when you first posted it was the video from the other thread. You edited it out and added the article so you could argue with Frosty? Or....
i'm not taking down this article cuz this bike deserves more traffic than a post in the vid forum with a vague title that will surely get missed by many. i had both the vid and the article, all i did was remove the vid to appease you. anyways, we can argue bullshit for 30 posts or discuss this awesome redesign. slick bike, can't wait to uncrate one and inspect it. also can't wait for el jeffe to make some joke about my mv and tape pics of this bike to my tool box.
Ah what the hell....I agree with you. I'm not much for ambiguously-titled threads either, and I hadn't noticed the other thread was in the video forum. I say add the vid back to this thread too.
I'll say what I said in the other thread - that is one sexy looking bike. I'd love to swing a leg over it and see what it's like to ride.
Let's add some photo content to the thread, from the article:
Curious what that is on the rear pillion. Comes with a rear camera stock??
What is with this trend lately for naked bikes to have that hunchback appearance at the front end? Everythign from the ERN6 thru the streetfighter to the MV's and now the KTM..
Am i the only one who finds that hunchback headlight a little off putting?
And this is coming from someone who loves Tuono's and has owned older multistrada's and speed triples! haha
All that aside.. It's overall an amazing bike!!
Wow is all I can say. Even before I owned a bike, or even thought I would own a bike, I have been a fan of the naked/street KTMs. I remember picking up a copy of Motor-Cyclist, seeing the KTM supermoto concept and thinking...Yup I want that!
This bike certainly does not disappoint. I am not sure about the headlight assembly, but I like that it is different and highly doubt it will be on the production version. I love the true GP style exhaust, that is so hot. Akra will hopefully produce it for the bike when its released. How good would that pipe look on a RC8???
I really like how Ducati and KTM are starting to put their current motors in their naked machines. Hopefully Honda will follow with the next gen CB1000R. No need for the nakeds to be under powered and instantly outdated.
Holy shit. That looks f'n amazing. My last (and fav bike) was the '05 first gen Z1000 and this thing reminds me of it so much - obviously a thousand times better, but the engine hanging out there like that is so awesome. Hated the way the new Zeds hide the engine, this thing does it right, and that frame makes it even more visible. PLEASE MAKE IT AVAILABLE IN CANADA.

They're professionals when it comes to emptying a pocket book so if you decide to go that route remember that you are not paying them to be with you.
You're paying them to leave.
Pretty hot, will be interesting to see how much of that bling is lost on the production model.
That thing is loaded with candy, and would likely be mucho dineros as it sits in those images.
