The KS has the 'hossack' front end as opposed to the tele-lever of the RS, etc series. I have both, very different. But I have not owned a standard front end bike for a long time, so wooly? The KS provides more feedback than the KRS, but, they are in my view quite different bikes, and both would feel way different to a standard front end. However, I get all the information I need from either and they both soak up road imperfections quite well. I would expect to install aftermarket suspension to suite my needs on any bike of that age, standard or non-standard front end......
