KTM have priced themselves right back into the market. I dunno what the tag on the 1290SD will be (certainly less than the RC8) but my 2012Duke is the one of the least expensive, non-Chinese, road bikes in Australia @ $10'990. To spend less in Australia means you're buying a gutless wonder or an unreliable pox-box.
