God that looks like fun. Makes you wanna go out and behave like a hooligan.

Some day I'm just gonna have to break down and buy myself a KTM Duke or something similar.

Yes, I'd love have a KTM Duke or Superduke as well, but there is no faster way to lose your driving license than such a bike. I've seen very quit guys turn in to hooligans in a very short period on these bikes. Stoppies, wheelies, all kinds of behavior they would never do on another bike....

If you can laugh at your own stupidities, you have fun all year round!

Thumbs up

Supermotos are awesome fun - but the fun is usually short lived. Your bike will either break down (AHAHA) or the cops will get you if you ride on public roads.
If you have a SuperMoto friendly track near you, then get one, but keep in mind that you'll need to service it a lot to make sure it feels happy. It really is hilarious fun.

Thanks for sharing the video

That's why I have a couple of drivers licenses from different countries, and which are different from the country I live in (plus the passports to go with them).

I'm not the hooligan type, but I can definitely see how these toys would be condusive to becoming one very quickly - I think the best thing may well be to stay away from them and stay out of jail at the same time. :-)
