Dwerg, their website doesn't spec what extras are added on the bike.
Do you have a list of what's added to the base model e.g. Does it come with the Akro and rear rack etc.?

Also, why KTM CT, isn't RAD cheaper or don't they do the Oryx conversion?
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!

Buff, RAD do the Omega kit only I think. The kit I ordered was developed by KTM Cape Town afaik but they do the omega as well. The omega is about 25k more but it does look the bomb. Especially those studio shots of the RAD branded ones. I think RAD was also slightly cheaper on the omega. The main reason I went for the CT kit is a partner in a venture also has one and we'd like to brand them

The kit includes the tanks, fairing, tower and brackets, front flush indicators, pipe and they mod the seat slightly. I specced mine with the rack, rubberised raisers and crashbars. Oh and that is the other advantage, rockfox make crashbars that work with the CT kit. AFAIK it's the only option that currently allows for crashbars. Last thing, tthe kit is considerably cheaper if you order it with the bike. Ordering just the kit will cost about the same as the omega kit

Added a few more extras and the bike is starting to become VERY expensive......  Can almost get a 1190 for the same price  :o :o

Extras list as things stand now: Rally Sport kit, Acrapovic pipe, luggage rack, handlebar raisers, crashbars, handguards, evo airbox, foam grips

Yep, they sent me a quote on Friday and I'm still trying to get over the shock of paying that much for a single, even if it's blinged to the nines  :o

I think I'm going to go for the standard bike with the small touring screen, a Wings pipe and rear luggage rack then add rotopax fuel cells for the longer trips. I'm shit scared that I'll fall those flashy rally tanks and fairings in their moer in the terrain we're planning on riding in  :-\
