Pretty cool. Little less than the 75 ponies of the prototype. But 5 more than the KTM 690 SMC and with 40 extra cc there is probably some decent extra torque in there. Kind of disappointing that they added ABS and ride by wire throttle. Takes away from the spirit of supermoto a bit. Hopefully the abs doesn't tame the rear wheel though.

They nixed the led headlight and changed the exhaust. I liked the prototype better. This looks like a blue and white 690. Not a bad thing, but I wanted to see something a little different.

I agree. Prototype looked better. This just looks like it was slapped together from the KTM parts pin. I was hoping they would let Husky run with it and create something a little different. Similar to the Nuda. It was based on the BMW F800 parallel twin. Husky bored it out to 900cc and tweaked a lot of the motor. Made it a monster. That was a really unique bike. I would have bought one if they brought them here. The two other concepts were realllllly cool. A cafe racer and a scrambler. Only bummer is the prototype came with the motor from the 390 KTMs. Need to put that 900cc parallel twin in those bikes to compete with the Ducati Scramblers that are coming out. Just listen to the 900cc engine. It sounded awesome when they were done with it.
