That's a massive fuel tank.
Wonder how it affects the handling when it's full, or sloshing at half full?

I hate to admit, but my KTM EXCR 530 sees way more action than my CR's these days.
Too convienient to be able to ride right out of the garage, up to the fuel pumps, and hoon around without loading and unloading the bikes.

The fact that it has e-start, and gobs of torque doesn't hurt either!
Nice trade!
Yah, I'm from Saskatchetoon!

I have a 650R as my dual sporter, it is sweet to be able to pull up to the pumps, but I can ride the CR right out of the garage as well so they both get use/abuse. My CR has the 3.5 gallon tank, my xr has the 4.5...both bikes are effected by a full tank but it's woth it for the range.
