Thanks for your comment
The KTM is very capable off road but takes an extremely skilled rider to extract its potential off road. However you are right, open road riding in NZ is limited by its size, there are more class 3 roads than class 1.
I am at home on my 500 in the dirt and find the 107 kgs it weighs easy to deal with on single track trails and in the mud so appreciate the implications of a much heavier bike off road.
So…………I’m sitting on the fence, but I am going to have to decide soon.
