Yes, really hard to buy a bad bike anymore. I really do miss cruise control since I have a fairly long ride to any interesting offroad places (nice national forest).
As for the KTM's ballistic motor, almost every time I hope on my AT I am reminded how slow it is in comparison to most of my other bikes. I do wish they'd put another 20 hp or so in it.
I still love the DCT but I do wish they had some way of simulation a quick clutch pull and release. I can see it being a real issue when trying to quickly loft the front wheel over something. I simulated crossing a small log with a berm in a car park. I was in first, blipped the throttle and it more launched me firmly into the berm more than lofting the front wheel. I can tell you I did use up 8.9" of the front suspension as I mostly crashed headlong into it instead of sailing over it. The forks bottomed hard and the rear swallowed the hit up like a MX bike.
So maybe Honda could introduce sort of a clutch trigger on the left handgrip. On the plus side the DCT will never stall and that can be a huge advantage.
