Two motorcycle companies have got the wrong idea on how to get the press to be interested in their products during a press conference. BMW and KTM Open link in a new window just don't understand it. BMW bore you to tears with financial data, and both BMW and KTM have their dealers on the stand, and when the start their presentation of their new products, all dealers are up front (including usually their kids), preventing you from getting a proper photo.

I skipped BMW's presentation, and stopped half way with KTM, since I was being pushed in all directions by dealers and kids. I did come back to do some follow up photos. But KTM should be ashamed (as well for their very expensive and very un-ecological press kits).

Toby Moody Open link in a new window, famous from his MotoGP and other motorsport reporting, did the MC-ing for the presentation, and thankfully he did a very good job. Here is the whole KTM champion family (with a few missing due to current commitments).

And here's the powerplant and drive.

145 kilos dry and a 35 liter fuel tank. The seat is 980 mm high... not bad for a 450cc.
