As a KTM fan ( which is not a ATM by the way, if you look after them ), it's clear to me that your requirements are more functionally driven than fun driven.
That being the case, the Suzy is your bike.

Seems you like the GS and nothing wrong with that.You also said that you won't view the puchase as an investment ( which it is not ).
Thus, if you are not phased with the wonders ( or hassles ) of electronics, the used Trophy referred to in your OP should do the trick.

Me and a mate fitted a Denco 4 into 1 to my Z 1 900, to " maximise the extra power to be unleashed " by  the Mikuni smooth bores fitted the previous Saturday.After the whole Saturday in the garage,the obvious thing was to go show it off that night to the buds at a local club ( disco ) where a lot of Pta bikers hung out over weekends.Levis & Vella Lummie clad, we hit the club - with 900 not running so smooth, but at least it looked very cool ( jetting hopelessly out  ;) ).Jolled hard and after quite a few teeks etc, it was show time for the manne...... beat and burnout time  8)
I fired the 900 up for the crowd and.......the Denco sounded like an old granny hissing a hymn.......no amount of trottle could unleash the devillishly sound of the 4 into 1.What a let down  :-[ The manne really jeered me instead of cheered me  :laughing4:
Turns out me and my exhaust fitting mate messed up two of the exhaust header gaskets during fitting time, which nicely showed up after the cool down time whilst we were jolling in the club  ;)
This was just one of many ( botched ) results of my back yard spanner swinging efforts.

ALL KTM 1050/1090/1190/1290 and GS 1200xx look like fat pot belly pigs with eating disorders?

It's just you - the AT is no light weight

Tail up design looks a bit out of proportion and those handlebars are too high for me.
With a cleaned up rear, nice open pipe and bar end mirrors, it should look better.
Claimed 150 paper ponies seem ok for a retro naked.
But, its still not a Z900  ;)

Just some irate, aggressive person - those who generally hate others and more particularly bikers.
Just chill, have a malt when you get a break and erase the mad cow from your mind  :thumleft:
