....when a 150hp KTM 1190R just doesn't have enough power for you! LOL

Hmmm; crap suspension, poor ground clearance, bad ergonomics, 100lbs of extra weight and exposed exhaust.........yep, sign me up!

The lowered 'Off-Road' gearing has the poor thing bouncing off of the rev-limiter almost all the time. Better be prepared to replace valves & valve springs on a monthly basis!
And being as the speedometer reads off of the transmission output shaft/rear wheel the indicated road speed is "WAY OFF", because one can not compensate for the massive gear ratio reduction.

I'll pass, but he was a very skilled rider. :)
