...I don't need the ground clearance and I think it would clean up the looks , lower the center of gravity and keep the hot pipe from the left leg area. I like the duke looks, but wan the light weight of the SMC.
You guys are sure quick to judge and laugh. I want to make a custom KTM motard and all I get is "why would you want to do that" and "that's a stupid idea." On my last (1st) post all the responses were about a question I didn't even ask (as is this one). Whatever, maybe I should just get an orange SMC and spend my time trying to fix the blinkers like you guys.
Great ???? just the center of gravity issue would be reason enough to make the swap. the duke exaust will fit on the SM the frame and swing arm are the same. but frame and swing are are not even close on the smc. More fyi diff front brake caliper and fully ajustable forks.
