  2. How was that a bike review, thought or suggestion?

    Anybody who can read and/or use a computer already know KTM have made a superbike. You're not about to rock the motorcycling journalistic world with that post Captain Yesterday.

  5. I like the more modern looks of this compared to the Ducati (1098). But Im not sure how the two will go head to head.
    Whilst the Duke is certianly the top end of quality, the price difference might position this in better favour.

  6. If only they made this in a 600cc guise, I'd be half interested.

  13. Look up the RC4. I do believe it is similar in styling, with the LC4 motor (640cc single) from their motard range.

  14. That's be a little less than a 1098 wouldn't it?

  20. Ugly as a hat full of arseholes!

    There was one at the Supers last weekend. I didn't like it at all. Be interesting to see how it actually goes though.
