wow, i had a closer look, and you're right. that deep sump looks vulnerable too. one speed bump could cost you thousands and make you look real silly on an exotic italian oil gusher.

"the Ohlins are set up to soft for high speeds"



that's probably just the setting that the last person who had the bike before Yossef dialed in... that's why they make 'em adjustable ya know!

When I tested the the 916-powered S4, I was somewhat resentful about the premium price. There is hope now for souls captivated by the essentialist Monster formula; the M1000DS supplies most of the fun of its watercooled brother at a list price that's 20-percent lower. The only thing you'll miss would be the extra top end, but in the context of naked and pared-down-to-their-bones bikes such as the Monster, it just really doesn't matter. Visually speaking, the liquid-cooled Monster can't hold a candle to the classic look of Taglioni's last creation. With its newfound fuel-injected vigor, there is no better frame in which to display this air-cooled masterpiece than the Monster.

My comments are self-explanatory. The 950 and Supermoto versions are great motorcycles, and, fortunately, you've enjoyed great dealer support. But, consistent with my position, neither has EFI, which almost every review has commented on - a reflection on KTM's approach to communication with the American buyer and their continued dismal efforts at public relations.

True, but buyer beware! The history (source) of the single machine I've founded on EBay is totally vague, in fact, no history at all to include VIN#.
