Two tone silencer looks neat

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

Whichever plastic company offers a one-piece side plate is going to make a lot of money. Photo

Looks like they chopped up a 1993 rm 250 shroud and bolted it on crooked.

What the hell with those rear number plates? This is one instance that I’m glad I have 17’

I really liked the previous styling and I feel this is a step back but I like it, it's different.

Yikes........not an improvement.

Can't wait to see an actual side profile pic. Side number plates look odd.

How many guys are going to strip it down and have the frame powdercoated white?

Nice scoop Mav.

There will be a lot of white powder coating going on too. I hate to focus on looks alone, so I'll also add that the suspension is a letdown. This is without a doubt the leading edge in development, and maybe they didn't think they could sell 400 of these at a higher price point with cone valves and trax. They are probably right with 400 more KTM's to sell, at least they have the desired painted frames.

Beta lowered their cylinders in '15, so that is not some new invention, although straightening up the intake and exhaust tracts is a big plus for power. Beta also did the chopped up side panels that no one liked for '18.

When all is said and done, the slim shrouds and ergonomics may make the biggest difference to the old bikes.

This is so ugly compared to last years bike.

Dean's bike I just posted up top looks good. Don't think the side plates are that bad.

Agreed. I like that more.

Whats the story on this? When was this info released? Seems more hush hush than the KTM FE release.

Maybe there is a functionality component to the rear plate being separated? Seat and rear fender come off together for airbox, shock, maintenance access?

Come to think of it maybe to access the shock. Take a look at Dean's bike and zoom in on that.

That's not the right way to treat a step child.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.
