2003 KTM 640 LC4 Supermotooooo

Average User Rating:
  • Hey guys
    Picked up my new bike which will replace the ZX as a commuter (much more practical, ZX will be converted to track or sold to buy a tracky not sure yet)

    Completely different sensation. Big thumping single cylinder, vibrations will take some getting used to as will resisting my usual urge to rev for a fast take of from the lights. Managed my first wheelie with in an hour of owning it doing that hahaha. Scared the crap out of me but in a good way! Absolutely loving the bark of the single.

    Battery has died so getting used to this whole kick starter deal until I get a new one. Leg is pretty damn sore now but I'm getting the hang of it. Kick start is on the left hand side, I heard that's a bit of an oddity?

    Post some more pictures of it later, previous owner took all the pillion stuff off so I'll wack that back on.

    Realised I haven't even been riding for 2 years yet and I'm on to my third motorcycle :D
