The Adventure is the only decent looking bike in the lineup...

Everything else looks like Batman rejects...

That SMT looks very nice, in a V-Strom kind of way

I have to say that I am somewhat disappointed in the 09 graphics of the SD-R. I prefer the matte black of the 08 model, but then again, I am biased:

I like the STM, but alas, am way too short for any KTMs other than the maisto I already own.

Why is this in user reviews?

I like the 08 also, but white on a bike looks good to me too.

Oh Jesse.....

Haha! He WILL have one one day! :rofl: That or he'll give in to my need for multiple bikes. :mrgreen:

I'm not sure. I posted it in General, but it was moved here.

That's good, because the 2008's motor was pretty weak.

Will this Super Duke have a larger fuel tank? You know, just in case. :D

dunno about SD-r, but they are not bringing over SD to states. they only have like 3-4 bikes in lc8 coming over for 09. at least what dealers can order. think the adventurer, 950 super enduro, rc-8(tho orders had to be done by dec 31st with $1k deposit) and 08 superdukes. ill have to double check. the SM and such is not coming..least according to our rep.

No SD-R either. It's a one year wonder for the US. Glad I got mine.

I actually like it. It's far better than the seat on my Z1000 was and I'd rank it as every bit as comfy as the seats on my previous TLR and GSXR1k. The only issue I have with it is that it digs into my thigh(whichever foot is down) when I am stopped at a light, but that could have something to do with my very short inseam on a very tall bike.

cool, thanks for info. guys here read on ktm forums, guys complaining on seats on R model bad. We dont have any of the bikes in this area, so all we have is what we read. one of guys looked at parts list to change everything on his SD to all parts from SD-R. It would something crazy cost to do it.

What about the streel legal dirtbikes??

LongR1
05-18-2009, 02:52 PM
thats what they are. they are full blown dirtbikes with lights on them. sold one to guy that rides to outdoor trail place, goes thru trails, then rides home. they are pretty salty for street. i would get into alot of trouble riding one..mainly on one wheel im sure. but way cool, just not cheap.
