And it's not a Beta! Though I do wish it was. It really came down to being able to get my suspension tuned locally as well as not having to install a kick start. I'm also liking the idea of no linkage for all the brutal rocks I ride in. I actually still like just about everything about Beta, most notably the engine is of a far superior engineering and design. It was really splitting hairs between the two both are excellent. Both suspensions needs work though lmao, they're no gas gas or Yamaha (kayaba) suspension. In fact I would probably say from the factory betas Sachs suspension is currently better than ktms xplor suspension, it's pretty &%$#@!ing terrible tbh lmao. Oh and in case you were wondering the clickers literally do nothing on the xplor suspension. It's a 3% change in dampening from all the way open to all the way closed. But ether way beta or ktm the suspension needs fixed so it's not really a factor. We'll see how I like this '18 xcw, hopefully beta will put a kicker back on and keep working on the suspension I'd still like to buy one for next bike.
