    I fell in love with that bike after seeing the video. KTM also has a really cool youtube video of the electric version. I had my hear broken at the Motorcycle Show when I was told by a salesman from Larson Cycle that the Freestyle was unlikely coming to the United States. It’s probably best if it doesn’t, since I have too much wrapped up in my DRZ.

    I was told over the weekend it was coming to the US but probably not till the 2013 model year (think this august or september) And that confirms a picture of a leaked dealer convention photo… Which also said 2013… (SO I HAVE MY FINGERS CROSSED)
