Maybe it's just because I an new to the sportbike scene but I've never seen or really heard about KTM's line of sportbikes. Looks like they have alot of power and they look amazing.

Are they overpriced and unreliable or something?

Low production numbers and really under-performing for the category that its in
I dont know about underperforming.... There are folks out there that make those fcukers move.:fact

I would say its more of a high cost thing....

Pictures really do this bike no justice. See one in person and hear one and you will have a new found respect for it.

agreed...there dirt bikes cost an arm and a leg....dont wanna imagine one of these guys
I would tend to disagree with you here. Their dirt bikes are actually priced very fairly, especially lately. They come better equipped with nicer parts like wave rotors, stainless lines, etc from the factory so when you add up the cost of adding those parts to a comparable japanese bike, you are going to be paying the same amount. Their quads are fcukin bad ass too....

I always thought the 1098S and RSV4 Factory outperformed it. But, it wouldnt be the first time that i was wrong.
I would say that they would be on pretty equal footing, but gotta give KTM props for delivering such a knockout punch on literally their first superbike. Dicing with the veterans as a rookie is no small feat.:fact
