You obviously never used to ride thumpers back when thumpers werent cool. Yamaha TT500's and TT600's...now thats old technology. The blue scoots are light years ahead of the not too long ago thumpers I used to ride.
Heck, it wasnt that long ago the DR 350 was considered trick!!

KTM RFS bikes are just borrowed Husaberg technology! Anything about the KTM RFS motor that has “newer” technology than the YZF/WR was developed and created by Husaberg, except the carb, which they borrowed from yet another bike. Can’t remember which one though…
…it’ll come to me in a minute…
I will grant you that the KTM PDS (or whatever it is called) is probably ahead of its time and well ahead of Yamaha. (But isn’t that Ohlins’ invention?)
Having said that I’ll point out that all the technology in the world ain’t worth a crap unless it is properly applied. If you want a high-tech bike buy a Cannondale…

are still riding like Energizer bunnies!!!
You're ready to have someone take you home on a stretcher and we're still ready for more riding!! I have to agree 100% with Geoff on this one. I know, my WR still sits in the garage collecting dust while I'm having too much fun on my 400sx!!!
