If ktm doesn't achieve power to weight 0.76hp per kilo they fail (race trim).
But in my opinion the intelligent market is asking for heavy bikes and de-tuned motors.
Rip 30kg of crap off it , insert race profile cam,remove decompression system, open intake mod, open exhaust mod, re tune.
Customer registers a power to weight 0.40hp per kilo bike with low running costs.
Next week they are riding a .80.
This game is going nowhere if leaving owners with hi cost yearly items.
I would pay more for a bike if i knew i could get that back over the years.
