Yes, the KTM's are sweet. I rode one at Mid-Ohio last year and loved it. If I had the cash, I would buy the KTM. Upgrades to the RC can come later. That's what I did after buying my CBR. KTM was just out of range for me at the time, but now I have my RC on the way to being like it should be. I would still love to have the KTM.
