It's a KTM will be lucky to get 40 never mind 400

Your paying for all the riding modes ,traction control and the rest of the electrickery that buyers don't really need , but the marketing people have convinced them they need.

Used to really criticise mine for fuel economy, but on doing some proper touring for the first time recently, I was getting close to 300km from a 19 litre tank, not to bad at all.
Mind u it's shocking bad when commuting.

Re: Super duke 1290 GT....

Wouldn't be gone on that at all. The front is a bit weird and ruins the overall look of the bike I think. Would probably be nice to ride though

Oh yes. This is literally perfect. I think it looks class too. They can take off a lot of the electrickery and knock about 3 grand off the price and they might sell a few more though!
