Very nice bike, but unless it is a motard style track prepare to get smoked on the straights.
Still like it, but honest can't see the point.
If you don't do anything stupid when young, you have nothing to smile about when old!

I saw this at the NEC show.
It's not track only but it is pretty much a copy of the 2012 Junior Cup bikes.
I really like this and I'm seriously considering it not least because it's a bike I would be happy for Tom (my eldest, 18) to ride on track.
Doesn't seem to have made it to dealers yet although its on the KTM website:

Difficult to see immediately in the pictures but it's got the engine bars the cup bikes used to such good effect.
