With all these launches by various brands, be it any capacity, don't you think we've had enough nakeds of late?
I agree with you. But adventure is KTM's first name, hyphenated to racing. They don't do adventure like any other maker does. They will go the whole nine yards and actually give you a proper adventure, KTM style. Very light, very fast, very tough, and unfortunately for man of us, very tall as well.

For that, they can either get a ready one here (very very expensive) or make a totally new one here.

The second is what we want. And the second is what they don't see the numbers for. Yet. Sadly.

Indeed, Doc. The 'very tall' factor is what draws me to this category by KTM. There are just one or two bikes I've ridden that are actually tall (and Goldwing-kind-of-comfortable) for me.

I predict that happening, though. Them preparing the D125 and D250 here at Chakan does send out a loud message.
