Ktm Trial Bike

What is the clutch mod ? Is that not a reservoir for the rear shock ?

 

Yes that is the rear shock reservoir.

 

But if you look close you can see beta parts in there. That yamaha is a nice modification of the old scorpa, that pic I think is about 4 years old but in reality all it is ever is or will be is a highly modified scorpa or a bitsa

If they wanted to, KTM would have no problem making a trials bike either 2T or 4T. I once heard the KTM make or made the BETA 4T trial engines, anyone know if that is true?

Best start with GasGas tecnology than trying something 100% new. Look that Freeride 350....

KTM should buy GG and make them the same as they are.. They could even make them Orange and sticker them as KTM and people, including me, will still buy them as they are a proven design by a big company and not a fly by night new brand.

Fake news. Just some designer messing about.

That's  shame as I would buy one of them.

KTM trials bike would be an interesting proposition.... coming from Honda road bikes, to KTM enduro bikes and onto my first trials bike in the form of a Gas Gas (partly what was available here, partly fond memories of watching Raga on Eurosport doing the indoor events), I'd be glad to see a GG that comes with KTM style owners and workshop manuals (including excellent jetting tables), online parts fiche, easy access to dealers and spares all round the world, not having to wait months if you crack a rim... sounds great!  Honda much the same... less upkeep, don't care if Toni Bou is riding one though, those big tractors don't excite me.

Freeride gets mixed reviews on KTM forums but guess they are looking at it from an OE-blinged up Enduro/MX perspective.... watched a promo video of James Whittam and one of the Lowes brothers having a ball on them round some woodlands.... looked great.

Think unfortunately the best new bike KTM could make has already been invented by Vertigo though?

This is on the Trials thread on ADV as well.  The Orange Kool-Aid drinkers are all agog over it, some even saying that a Katoom Trialer would increase interest in the sport "by 50%".  Yeah, okay.  :rolleyes:  Evidently there is a prototype (the one in the pic posted earlier is not it), but no guarantees that KTM will move forward with it.  We'll see.

Could it be that Stefan Pierer convinced Joan Gurt to sell Ossa...? KTM has the knowledge and money to improve the Ossa and make it orange.
