Dropping that bike and tearing off the plastic would be a blessing.

Take it off!

There is a scene in the movie Beatlejuice where the couple stretch out their noses to haunt the new residents. that is what the front number plate / fender looks like to me.

The front nose section reminds me of that pair of spies in "Spy vs. Spy" in the MAD magazine.

1. Needs suspension work--anyone know a good tech?

2. Needs to be remapped--it is corked

3. Needs wind protection--hope someone makes a shield (small is OK)

4. Needs new pipes--like riding a sewing machine

5. Needs a 19" front wheel--adventure written all over it

Then watch out: Nothing will keep up with it! If you don't believe me--you will have a good look ahead---

I take back what I said before, we just got a couple at our shop and they dont look half bad in person, just needs different pipes so it doesnt look as goofy.

The 950SM is a ton of fun to ride, if i could have any street bike that would be it, but I havent got the chance to ride the 990 superduke, that looks like even more fun!

the baja 690 looks much better. get that and motardize it.

were they drunk when they designed the front fender?

that thing is ugly from the fender forward and the pipe back. The middle part is typical KTM beauty...

what's wrong with the baja? Couldn't KTM have just used the baja and put super moto tires (tyres) on it?
