That looks like an offering from Zong Shen. I had their RX3 250cc ADV bike. Very well done bike. I heard they may be coming out with a 400. I hope this gets KTM moving.

A buddy of mine up in Pennsylvania has one o' them RX3 Chinese dual sport ADV bikes and has loved the heck out of it. Bought it pretty much straight out of the shipping container and assembled it in the garage at home.
As for the BMW, I have been hesitant to send too much love their way when the engine was revealed to be so underpowered compared to the other bikes in the 300-400cc category. It is a lovely bike, and I think my wife would look fantastic on one and she ain't fast anyway so it would work for her, but there isn't a comparison between bikes with such a power differential.

All that being said, I love this new trend toward small displacement bikes in general, and ADV bikes specifically. Maybe Ducati will lop a cylinder off of the new Desert Sled (instead of sleeving it down and keeping all of the weight of a v-twin, seriously WTF?) and get in this game, too.
