i think this was tested in a bike mag last year - Capetown area if i remember right.
Think the 1200 won on the straight drag (gravel too - traction is traction...both of them have a 150 rear wheel....) but the Katoom won on the rougher fast stuff (pretty obvious i know)
The top speed of the BM is higher too no?

The BM has more power doesn't it? or am i talking shit? i'm in over my head here - someone stop me talking!!!
Etienne - kak question - who cares!!!  :biggrin: i know which one i'd choose - i don't 1/4 mile drag race   :imaposer:
BMW F650 DAKAR ; BMW 650 X-Challenge ; YAMAHA 660 TENERE ; BMW 800 GS KTM 200EXC. Now - KTM 950 Adventure S, KTM 250 XC-W and BMW 450 Rally

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...

Lets test it. I would have to use my GS that's for sale now as that baby would run circles around my GSA. (clear throat with the remus pipe) :P

can't you guess?
the katoom - suits me better i think.... riding-wise.
Think i'd smash the bash-guard on the 1200 straight through the engine on it's 1st ride....  :( pity, cause i like them too  :3some:
