It doesn't look that much different.

There's a few nice tweaks, they've moved the cruise to the left switch block and tweaked the engine to make it smoother and very slightly more powerful. LED headlight and tft dash...

I want a go but it will have to be really special to get me to change.


Edit, Reading the review in PB it looks like KTM have done a lot of work to improve the suspension, which is not bad at all on mine at normal/fast road speeds. (y)
