Destroying the field, KTM bikes just look superior to the rest. AC,herlings, prado, jonas winning by 30 plus seconds WTF. Dungey , marvin winning here in the US. You can see the difference in power and how the bike handles.

Are you referring to tomac? he would be smoked by herlings and AC at the moment. The green pig has no chance.

Tomac won this weekend, so clearly Kawasaki makes the best 450

Well it certainly can’t be that they’re the best riders now can it.

Sure he would

There’s a valid point here: how many KTMs out there...being competitive, period...?

Does that say something about the bike & the brand’s approach to racing?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

If you want to compare apples to apples. Factory bikes with KR94 vs. BB4 shouldn't that have given the edge to BB4 in yesterdays racing at CO ?

BB4 didn't appear to have the edge with the orange bike even though he was racing against a guy who just came back from multiple arm surgeries.

Don't forget the rider as part of the equation. Personally if I felt they are a superior bike I'd have one in the stable..

KTM's are much more advanced bikes, but at the highest level, it's definitely not the bike.

Not really. The only thing the ktm has is a weight advantage at the moment. I know a few guys who have them, a ktm fe and a buddy just got the husky rockstar edition. Personally i don't like the feel of them and they vibrate my feet like crazy. Not my cup of tea.

I know every rider has their preference...

To say the KTM's are not more advanced is a stretch though.

Try selling a used one. I can’t give mine away

In the gp classes they are hedging on all the top riders.
Over in the ama side they seem to be a better mixture.
All the bikes are good today.

I don’t recall seeing a one brand dominance since the Elsinore was introduced. On both sides of the pond they seem to be doing very well. When you go into a local dealer and look at Husky/KTM and then wander over n take a look at any of the big 4 and you can see why they are dominating

|

6/3/2018 10:28 AM

Well, there's stock, and modified. Pay more for a better stock bike, or pay less but spend more for a modified bike. Pick your poison!

Or maybe, Ktm has the money to get the best riders while also providing a good bike?? But maybe that’s too logical.

I've got a yellow 450 and a white 450 and there is no way that the white bike is $4000 better

Roczen won races on a KTM , won races on Suzuki and won races on Honda ...
how much of those wins is credit to the bike ? How much credit for Kenny ?

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

I've def deferred to MXGP and JH specifically being superior to the Nationals the past couple years. But I didn't see some otherworldly speed being displayed today that Eli doesn't have. Herlings is for sure the best and most well rounded because of his ability on all surfaces. Gtfo with this "would be smoked" nonsense
