2017 KTM EXC/XC Dirt bikes. Lighter more powerful...less reliable?
The new KTM 2017 off road bikes sound awesome. Lighter and more powerful.
But they tell us that almost every part has been made lighter: Engine, shock, fork, frame Etc.
To my layman's brain, this means more breakages, more maintenance and more money.
OK for a race team, but us amateurs may start looking elsewhere if that happens.
What do you think?
