May very well be a fantastic bike. But I do not like bikes that look like the female praying mantis looking to bite my head off or any insect looking bike.

There are a whole bunch of super bikes that are out that I would love to ride once or twice but the new 675R intrigues me with the new hp gain and my 06 with everything I have put into it is 6 hp down and the new framw supposedly makes the bike rock solid. The KTM may well do 190mph but the 06 675 clocks at 154 so I can't see needing and extra 40 mph as I am going to jail anyway with the 675 if caught.

Glad every one loves the KTM, better that than the Honda pig. Boldor will pee his pants if he hasn't already. So, yes I have lost my marbles because I think it ugly.
