KTM is a respectable brand.   Now why would they design and manufacture a motorcycle that is this ugly?   The darn thing looks like it was wrecked and had the back end ripped off.  

And again a bike with not even a nub for a back seat.

Concept bike styling can be polarizing. I'm sure the production version will be equally ugly (once all the street legal stuff is added) but in a more familiar way.

Personally, I'm glad to see this break cover as this will be a good beta test year for the 790 twin engine that will hopefully power a new mid-size adventure bike the following model year.

Looks like a super moto bike on steroids

Have you had a passenger on this thing yet?  You know.  Bear hugging from behind?

I don't get the "chopped off" look. The rest of the bike looks good to me.

Good video.

 I don't! After some first-hand experience with KTM "quality", "warranty" and working on the damn thing...I am eagerly awaiting the T7 Yamaha. Love the power of the KTM hot rods, but couldn't live with one. But I bet this will be awesome offroad .

I certainly don't want one.  Thumbsdown
My son has one, I've ridden it.  Lots of power, decent handling, horrible seating, and definitely Butt ugly.
I just don't understand the whole rear end up in the air thing that has become popular with motorcycle design of late.
I don't want my passenger, OR baggage sliding into my backside, while I am sliding into the gas tank.  Ouch...
I prefer smooth lines, to Transformer robot looks
