Kid 100,
What do you mean by the statement "and since 1 week in austria available"
Is that an indication on how far out they are?

Dual Sport????

Hmmmm.... I seem to remember KTM (in the U.S. at least) making a big to do about the fact that the then new 400 and 520 "Racing 4-Strokes" were not suited to use on pavement, due to the racing bottom ends. They were making a big push to have dealers steer anybody looking to ride a KTM on the road, towards the LC-4 motors. Now I see turn signals that look factory installed, on a brand new 2002 520 sitting in a dealer showroom in Austria? Does anybody know if KTM has relaxed thier warnings against riding the 400 and 520s on the street?

Yeah SeanATK, I would like to know the same thing. The REASON I didn't buy the KTM RFS was the fact that they were claiming it would not hold up to dual sporting it. I ended up buying the 01 WR250F, which I love, BUT, I still would have preferred the KTM with the magic button.

Yes, the EXC is available for registeration in Australia. But the 2002 520 doesn't arrive here for another 6 weeks. I just can't wait to get mine.

In fact all EXC models (2 and 4stk) in Australia come fully street legal and can be commonly seen on the streets. I don't have any feedback on their durability as a Dual sporter. (in fact, I'm looking for some as I'm looking at buying one that's been used this way)

Sort of makes me feel better paying $12,000 for one. Don't anyone in the US complain about paying $6,500 for a dirt bike again!
I will enjoy riding past the cops, legally.
