Yum. If this thing came street legal, I'd be willing to sell my baby SF and my 675R for it. I even like the wheels... But then again, I always thought the RC8R was the best looking Super Bike....

If you can't get in trouble on that then there's something wrong.

It looks like a pumpkin on nitros. I bet you get a speeding ticket just for buying it. KTM makes some wicked machines but must they cost so much? I've been looking for a dual sport and KTM is just beyond my budget.

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.
