That looks awesome! I hope the affordability of these improves as I can't currently lay down that kind of coin for a toy!

Looked at the Alta offerings this weekend at Highland Park and the guys their said in 5 to 10 years we will all be on electric! I was thinking..Not for $12k I won't!!

Excited to see where they go with these!
2013 KTM 690 Enduro/Sumo
2013 KTM RC8R
2011 KTM 990 SMR (Oh Yeah)
2002 YZ250 (EG295)
1985 Goldwing (ish)

What we've got here, is a failure to communicate.  Strother Martin as the Captain in Cool Hand Luke.
 Endeavor to persevere! Chief Dan George as Lone Watie in The Outlaw Josey Wales.

When in trouble, shower down on the throttle. It either fixes the problem or ends the suspense.
