This week's Classic Steel is a look back at tire shredding 1982 KTM495
It was actually the year before this one but the bikes were very similar.

My buddy had one of the 83 ktm 504's with the big rotax 4 cylinder engine. The one thing I remember about that bike was the absurdly hard seat. Down right painful to have it hit you in the rear. I would find myself shifting my weight foward to avoid getting slapped by the seat thus putting more pressure on the horrible front forks.
I like knobby tires
