I just tried one now. Supposedly it has 45 h.p. and weights 135 kg, which is a better power to weight ratio than my Dakar. However, I didn’t like it much… I felt it like a scooter, or even better, like this:
May be I´m getting too used to taller and heavier bikes. I also like better forks with more angle, this one was too straight for my taste…
I’m sure that it can corner quite well… any experiences?
Well, I have check some reports on Internet that low down the HP of the bike to 36 and so:
That explains a little bit how I found it… being 135 kg only, if it had 45 HP as KTM claims, it should have a greater punch… it is a mono, not a 4 cylinders, so my understanding is that you do not need to rev up to 8,000 to getting the best out of the engine.
