Thanks Jarrod. I absolutely love this bike! It was the first day out on it...so just couldn't help but have fun. You ride sport bikes on the tracks right? Have you ever seen any KTM 690's out there? I'm wondering if they can keep up with the sportbikes....provided riders are equally experienced of course.
Hahaha... Awesome. Some days you just can't help but turn the throttle.
Be safe out there, man.
You could track that thing, but don't expect to be competitive with the fast guys. The bike's just not capable. Yeah, they can corner, but they run out of steam way earlier than even a 600. If you find a small track you may do all right. Anywhere with long straights and you'll get eaten alive. Heck, where we usually ride there are multiple 100+ mph corners. Just not really Su-Mo friendly. You'd be pinned before you hit the straights.
Yeah....I figured it would have trouble keeping up on the straight aways. It's just so much faster than my DRZ, I thought it may have a shot of being competive with sportbikes on the stretches....
Evan, I'm not even slightly exaggerating, it'll pull up wheelies at 70mph with only a light tug on the bars. It does, however, have a full Akrapovic exhaust, power commander, re-mapped, dyno tuned, etc.
