hello, how do you think isnt ktm atv too small for 6' 5'' , 95 kg?
i never saw it in real, some people say its real small for that height. but some say you can adjust steering?

I'm 6'0" & 98kg fully dressed. I don't have a problem at all with comfort. probably the best bike I have ridden for my size. They appear small to look at, but everything changes when you climb on 1.
Also have a mate about 6'4". He has ridden it & looks quite large on it, but said that it felt very comfortable & everything is in exactly the right spot.
Hope this helps you a little.

I am 6'6" and 255 and I love it. I am not quite as comfortable as I was on my DS650 but its not bad. I have the rox pivoting risers to push the bars up and forward and that helps. I can't run with the fenders for aggressive cornering because my knees hit them but overall I am very happy with the fit. Yep pretty easy to beat about any stock quad as long as you are a good rider.

we need to change lvr's name to jolly green giant.... j/k
i am 6'3" 240 all geared out and the quad fits me perfectly. i was affraid that it would feel too small, but it works really well. i typically need a +2 stem and cr dbl hi bars, but i can honestly say that i dont need either for the ktm. my ltr & yfz were useless w/o a stem & bars. i tested the new kfx back in july and felt like i was riding a kid's tri-cycle, way too small for me.

thats pretty cool i'm not worry now, i'm waiting now to try it , but i'm confused to choosing between new raptor and 525k, after try will see
whats the top speed 525 or 450 ? i think that acceleration of ktm is better cause of shorter gears than raptor or am i not right

People call me a lot worse things than jolly green giant so that's okay. I wouldn't get the raptor. They don't fit me at all and the ride and build quality are nothing compared to the ktm. The stock suspension works great for my weight although for serious mx i would need to stiffen mine up.

No sports, I just thought they looked like too much work! I wish I was a couple inches taller and I would stand out a little better. My favorite line is when someone asks me if I played Basketball, I ask them if they ever played miniature golf.

I'm 6'5" 200lbs and the only thing I don't like is, the corners on the tank really bang up my knees. With that said if fits much better than most quads I've tried over the years. If your tall you just have to deal with these things like trying to find 36" long pants
