Title: A rose amongst the thorns? or a THORN amongst the roses...?!
Post by: zebra - Flying Brick on February 03, 2017, 08:50:51 am
dropped off some tyres last night at Donford Motorrad, and saw this sight....


....30-odd BMW bikes, and one lonesome, very-pretty, legendary KTM, (wif rim tape...!) flying the flag for Austria, in the depths of the Fatherland...!


A rose amongst the thorns? or a THORN amongst the roses...?!

Knowing what I know about the 640 I'd say it's more like a vibrator in a church ...

You cannot but help notice how the Katoom immediately brightens up and draws interest to an otherwise bland showroom.......... :biggrin:  :peepwall:

Marketing strategy lol........?

As opposed to other 650s which are just like being in church. Boring as fuck.

Very nice looking 640 that!

Well a bike dealer should have at least one real bike on the floor.

My thoughts exactly. All that expensive new BMW's and the first thing you notice is a 15 year old Katoom :laughing4:

That's not a salesman. It's one of the guys in charge of fixing bikes. He obviously doesn't have much to do...unlike the KTM guys that didn't even have space to fit this 640.  :pot:
