  • KTM 790 Adventure

    This is a KTM I might be willing to sell my Triumph for. I wonder how long the premium Husky model will be announced.

    Anyhow most of you already know I am not a big fan of the big so called adventure bike that break the 1000cc engine size. Here in BC just about every FSR that goes thru to somewhere turns into a goat trail at some point where those big bike just should not go.

    The big industry trade show in Milan is still a few days away, but our story-breaking

    Yep.....this might be the 950 replacement......though those 1090s are super capable as well. From the article it looks like it's a couple years away from production but nice to see it getting closer! Can't wait to see some specs.....

      There's some interesting looking wind deflectors or something under the headlight shroud. Some pretty cool tech going on here.....

        That looks a lot more interesting than the Africa Twin... probably the price will reflect that.

          Still calling it a prototype, and no specs listed.
           
          My life has a superb cast, but I can't figure out the plot...

            My guess is a 690 replacement? You got your 350exc, 500exc, 1090R, 1290R and soon to be a 790R.
            Comes in a duke model for 2018.

              Hey Tom, check out this video of an Africa Twin on some B single track. You might change your opinion that big adventure bikes should not be ridden on trails.
