Wel ek sal albei wil besit, maar die HP eerste.

Nog 'n vraag? Hoeveel van die HP2 manne se riding buddy's is op SE's?

Ek het pel wat 2 het na hy met die 800 soos ek gesukkel het.Hy is wel baie kort en die se pas hom beter.

Ek dink die 2 fietse is dieselfde mentaliteit ryer aangedrewe.

dit is wat ek ook al gehoor het.

Losper het albei, maar verkies die hp2.

Nee, ek het 2 x HP2's. ( nie 'n 950SE nie )  Die een gebruik ek permanent en ry hom asof hy gesteel is. Ek word sommer styf as ek nou aan my HP2 dink.
Die ander een het amper geen kilo's op nie en hy wag rustig om eendag ver in die toekoms gery te word.

Geen bike roer my hart snare soos 'n HP nie. Niks fout met die 950se nie, inteendeel dit is 'n great bike, slegs persoonlike smaak.

I'll open the bidding!
What the fuck is the question? >:D

Ek dink die mense wil weet hoekom het jy die SE gekies het eerder as die HP2.


I've owned 1 x 1100 gs, 2 x 1200gs, 1 x 950adv, 1x 990adv and the SE.
I prefer the ktm off the black stuff and loved my 950. I thought the 990 was a step up but i did'nt gel with it and prefered the carbs. My only option was an se as i wanted a new bike.Yes, the se is not the most comfortable bike but my feeling is that u get used to riding anything. I also have a Capo, but still use the SE more. I personally would buy a ktm 990/950 before i bought an HP2, but that's my preference,nothing against BMW. I don't dig the shaft drive, the engine/exhaust sound and just the general look of the bike.

As far as collectors items are concerned, maybe it's because the ktm's are traditionally race bikes that are used and abused and then replaced with the next best race bike and over the years BMW's have not been perceived by the general public as race bikes and have many different road and off road bikes that have become collectable. Remember that many people don't even know what a KTM is. I have over the years had many people ask "who makes KTM". Who knows and who cares, ride whatever you like as long as YOU enjoy it!

just my 2c

Do you feel that the SE was the best bike KTM could have produced at the time, or were they trying to counter BMW?

Persoonlik hou ek ook baie van beide die bikes, my volgende "groot" bike sal een van die twee wees.

Het nog nie een van die twee gery nie, en ek dink dit sal 'n moeilike besluit wees. Op hierdie stadium dink ek die "wye" motor op die HP2 sal my enigste beswaar wees.

I don't know. In my opinion the 990/950 is as good or better than an HP2 >:D

Stem saam die pods speel wel n rol.  Gister weer redelike klipperige paadjies gaan ry en ou is maar altyd ge-worry of die pods die klippe gaan slaan.

Baie ouens se weer die pods kan in jou pad wees as jy jou been wil uitsteek ala MX style  -  persoonlik dink ek dis net n persepsie van ouens wat nog nooit die ding op n track gehad het nie.

will you still be riding the same bike (all else staying equal) in 20 years time, or at least park it in the garage when it can't ride anymore

nope...we'll be riding another, newer kick ass KTM. As Alfie said, why stick with dinasour bikes when the newer ones are so much better. The HP2 and boxer engine have been around for how long...?

granted in 20 years it will be outdated (some say the boxer is currently outdated  ;D) but it will almost certainly stirr up some sort of emotion.

Something some new kick ass KTM might not do.

This is my viewpoint on it, it might be different from person to person
