tm_enduro, That was my point. Some people don't like it and say its a waste. I actually like it and the idea behind. Ridden a 570 a few times and love it on more open terrain etc but in tight single track the 390 would be better. My comment about the husaberg two strokes everyone is raving about is old KTM stuff with a few different options that I already stated. It is literally a KTM XCW with CC forks and a different look. Whats really odd is when someone rides a KTM 2012 frame they talk about how much better it is then the previous frame(current Husaberg two stroke frame) but the berg still gets rave reviews. Just odd thats all. That said I still love the two stroke Husabergs and Im glad KTM has decided to add them to the husaberg line up. In my opinion the husabergs and gas gas models are the best looking bikes on the market today. Even better then the KTM by a mile. I don't like the look of KTMs after 2007 exc's.
I don't think your 70 degree engine is going anywhere. The idea has already had a few followers such as the OSSA 300i enduro and the YZ450F which is a monster and if you ever get to ride one take the chance. If ktm throws in the towel now thats to much money lost. I may eat these words though. won't be the first time.
I don't take anything I read on a forum as true statement. Still fun to talk about it.
