was having trouble with coming up with three models from one manufacturer that I wanted until I thought, "well what engines would I like to own?"

came up with these three, historically significant, KTM engines:

KTM 950 Super Enduro ... the LC8 was Dakar champ in '02 and is the engine Ewan and Charlie wanted to ride around the world with ...
The LC8 engine helped contribute to the end of multi-cylinder Dakar race bikes.

2007 LC4 660R ... the LC4 was Dakar champ in '01, and '03 - '06.
The LC4 engine helped contribute to the beginning of the 450cc single-cylinder era in Dakar.

2016 KTM RC 250 GP ... Moto3 champion in '12, '13 and '16 and currently leading the Moto3 championship points in 2019 ...
KTM has been competing head-to-head in Moto3 racing with the behemoth, Honda ...

extra credit:

KTM boss Erich Trunkenpolz and the 1970 Penton 125cc Six-Day ... the Penton ISDE bikes helped lay the foundation of "race ready" motorcycles that KTM is built upon ...

Got em.

690 Enduro

May swap 690 for 790 at some point soon.

As or more reliable than any honda/Suzuki I've owned in the past 35 years.

KTM might be able to do it.. but they dont really have a sport touring bike. But I could do one of the big KTM adventures, a 500EXC-f and a 300 XC-W. Three bikes are all kinds of compromises.....

But I cant imagine only three bikes hitting all the categories for me. I need a proper dirt bike, a dirt worthy dual sport, sport or naked sport bike, sport touring bike, trials bike, and some sort of adventure bike (preferably middle weight).

With that list, Honda would be the only one to be able to check off all the boxes, and there would be some compromise choices still.
What would you consider a Superduke GT? OK, I'm in late as usual. ..

Multistrada 1200 Enduro Tour
Hypermotard 950 SP

Fun fact, I got approved on the 1200 Enduro Tour, but didn't want to finance two bikes at once
