Will someone please!!!

Manufacture something like the 690 ktm for under 7.5k!!!!(~6-7k would be perfect.)

2009 ktm 690 duke 6

I mean come one Hona/suzuki/kawi please get your head out of your and think outside the box. I really do not want to pay 10k+ for a dirt bike.

anyone else agree?

Sadly, the Europeans get the best selection & some of the really cool stuff. That Duke is sooo sweet. The drz-sm is cool in black but the yellow.... well.... just hurts my eyes.

That is not even close to a dirt bike. Have you ever seen anyone with one out at a dirt track? The only thing close would be the Sxv 5.5, 450, KTM 690's and smaller.

I can offroad a Ferrari, if anyone is willing to donate one..... anything is offroad capable. He doesn't need to jump 150 feet in the air, or anything... I think it'd be a good offroad bike and street.

I was in love with that bike until I rode one at the bike show and didn't like it at all.
