Ridiculous video from KTM

I came across this today while wasting time at school:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...28&q=supermoto

It strikes me as being rather irresponsible of KTM to put out a video like this encouraging this kind of unsafe and immature riding. The rider is incredible and it really shows off the potential of the motorcycle, but c'mon guys weaving in and out of traffic at 20mph faster than everyone else and wheelieing on populated city streets. I love how the guy arrives coolly at his destination, keep riding like that and it won't be long before you're arriving coolly in a wheelchair and eating dinner through a straw.

I'm no saint when it comes to riding, but I don't think this kind of behavior should be encouraged by a major factory.

No worse than Star Boyz and all the rest of the stunter vids. I doubt if the stunter crowd really need it for an instruction video. If one is prone to ride like an idiot they will with or without clips like this.

Yep real, the 990 Superduke vid is even better with more high speed lane splitting antics.

And they took it down, I can't find it.

That bike being is bred for hooliganism. It's useless as a streetbike beyond that, and too heavy to be raced as a motard competitively.


Cool vid though.
