The only thing that ktm do better is the counterbalance motor. It does has less vibes than anything out there in 2t form. Trouble is that total lack of vibes means less feedback and for me that isn’t a positive as I don’t trail ride long distances. On my Beta you know when it’s about to lose traction due to some vibes, it’s not bad vibes. You can just feel it. It speaks to you. It comes with a more tractable motor, lots of quality kit, top suspension, wheels, tyres and brakes. It’s also cheaper than the KTM equivalent (which would be a six days with 6500 inserts fitted from new). KTM doesn’t win world enduro championships, Beta do, you can see why. I know I’ll be buying again next and it won’t be orange. Sherco is something I’ve not tried yet but by all accounts it’s a cheesy beta in blue.
