Seems to be about £6500 for a really clean low miles one, £4000 for a more used & abused one.

There's loads of upgrades for them like electronic suspension etc... which can affect the price. Most owners seem to be hanging onto them.

The engine is a BMW unit made by Kymco. It can be factory upgraded fairly cheaply to 55bhp instead of 40bhp and most are. CCM set it to 40 to increase service intervals & mpg. Euro4 emissions killed the bike off, but there is an improved 600cc version on the way.

I really want a go on one but I'm worried I'll immediately want to buy it

Ok my impulse is in its death bed and I'm frankly tired of it even with the Karizma engine!

I've had it up to here with these rumors. If they don't launch the adv this year I've decided to buy a jawa and Jack it up with off road suspension as It's the lowest 300cc in the market I believe and should easily take a 2" lift. But please KTM just launch it already will you, I know I can't build a better scrambler than you guys but I AM RUNNING OUT OF PATIENCE HERE!!
