Who is the fuel tank made by? Doesn't look like a CRM tank.

Does ETS make tanks too? I was under the impression that they were a fuel company.

Different brake rotors (Moto-Master) too, same as what the factory teams use (US and Europe).

How many mxgp championships has Cairoli given KTM?? And then Herling's goes and gets one and he gets his own pro model bike? Seems like a slap in the face to Cairoli....

They did 'SXS' versions / editions for many years. As someone posted up, AC ones, I think a few times.

As far back as the 125 2t era.

Wouldn't that be the Rockstar edition? It came with the number 21 you could use if you wanted to.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

KTM is the worst brand ever. A brand that creates a monopoly that destroys the ability of young rider to win on another brand (Pichon says exactly the same thing in the last MX magazine). A brand that make collusion in SX US (Anderson Wheel), A brand who ask to Musquin to goes down, A brand with an athletic program that is probably the same as Marion Jones lol.



Otherwise where is his renthal bar ? laughing

While all that may be true, you have to respect the money KTM is pouring into not only motocross, but pretty much all off road motorcycle racing. They are raising the bar for their competitors and is inevitably going to progress the sport, at least in my opinion.

Does it come stock with the throttle grip already stuck WFO?

Money that comes mostly from Redbull. The drink that gives wings and heart attacks.

Bummer, I wish they would do more factory edition stuff like that.

Not sure they could legally sell it any other way. That would be false advertising.

Nice touch they put it on, but seriously, who needs a bigger tank on a 450 for moto?? That makes as much sense as putting JHs suspension setting on the bike.. unusable for mere mortals!

Pease tell us you're joking about the Musquin thing again (I'll assume you are). Anyone who thinks KTM invented team rules doesn't know much about professional racing.

That particular night, I was just waiting for Musquin to move over for Dungey. He damn would have if I were the team manager. Then I came back there to find what apparently was a wave of 14-year-olds who've never seen that happen before (as if it were gonna happen any other way).

When you post on different forums around the internet that have nothing to do with bikes or racing, you develop a sense of perspective. This place is rock bottom. People here don't know what the fuck "sandbagging" is.

F1. MotoGP. MXGP. Screw the rest.

KTM creates a monopoly? I don't even know why I'm responding. This has got to be the stupidest thing said on here.

So that means it's not legal for Pro AMA competition right? Meaning a privateer couldn't buy one and race in the states.
