You're thinking from a dirt bike perspective. It is more likely the designers are thinking urban commuter perspective. It looks like a nice bike, but the price is likely gonna be pretty high. If the seat height is not too high, it could be popular with the inseam challenged crowd.Tubeless is a good point, I was thinking weight and strength.
Good chance to try KTM off-road bikes and get a great ride in too!
Oh, I can understand that. Sometimes you might be cruising along and it is muddy, but the mud just isn't deep and the ground underneath is actually relatively firm... until you hit one of those spots... Back when I had my 1150, I got into a few tight spots because of nasty mud...
And maybe, a few times after you moved to the 1200...Back when I had my 1150, I got into a few tight spots because of nasty mud...
Kickstand broke off earlier that morning. Mud can serve a purpose. Sand also workers well, especially if a little damp. I've often parked a bike in mud because wet soil will not support a kick stand dependably. Well, there are also those times I wasn't ready to park, but that's another story.
