I say buy it...now. That is an excellent deal. KTM is not offering the SMT Limited Edition in the U.S. The extra parts are worth about $1,300. Not sure what that would be in the U.K. (maybe 3 pounds??).
It is tempting, but I've just come back from a blast to Normandy on my 950SM and it didn't miss a beat. It carried my stuff with some Kriega luggage, the sat nav helped me find my way, it flew round the twisties and was as smooth as you like with those trusty old carbs. Perhaps I've forgotten how good other bikes can be, but is the SMT going to be that much better?
