well.. as somebody who has built a fair share of hybrids and actually owns a ktm, I'll agree to disagree. there were build pics of this while it was being done as well a few mos ago. (dont remember where).

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing. My point is that the bike will never be properly vetted. So just like many bikes the exercise simply is... There is not much more to say beyond either you like it or you don't, sure points can be made for one aspect or another, but there will never be verification either way. Perhaps I'm too much of a nihilist, but this is the only conclusion I can personally draw for examples such as this.

Needs a real tune crappy powerband not clean and smooth at all.
Buy some real carbs, get rid of the K&N's and use my TSR/Barlow boost bottle setup with better reed system.

I've seen some cool stuff come out of India. It seems money is no object for some of those guys. Either way, I think he did a nice job it just doesn't make sense to me to use an AC engine in something like that.

very true, as most of the rds in india are already done with the last size piston possible the only option left is to grab one from the United States  ;),  i have picked up the new powerdyno kit from john for mine will install in a week or two
