the KTM will outperform the Honda in most every way .... except reliability, durability, and parts availibility when you're stranded somewhere ... nobody matches the Honda in those categories .. :banghead:

a men to that brother.

Out of town on business and noted at a intersection today a KTM LC4 - pretty trick looking bike! I am thinkin' my XR650L is no match for it correct?

NO COMPARISON! I've ridden both, the LC4 has WAY more power. Vibrates like a mofo though.

Reliability of the LC4 motor is no greater or less than the Honda, oil changes are a little more complex, valve adjustments are a bit more frequent, but the bike isn't any more or less reliable than a Honda. Dealers are fewer and farther in between than Honda though.
