I'd rather have the new 690 Duke. I wish they were importing it into the US.

The 690 weighs 330 lbs, does it not?

I think that KTM hit the perfect balance between comfort and handling with the SMT. It's so subtle that it takes a few thousand miles to really appreciate the magic there.

I get anywhere from 175 to 215 miles per tank on my 2011 SMT.

The SMT is just a really fun, good all-around motorcycle. I love mine!

.I guess that makes sense. The new Adventure looks good and has some more road oriented features now.

I can't imagine needing more power. But I guess the Adventure will weigh more.

This is probably a dumb question, but do you know if the R seat fits on the SMT? My SMT seat pushes me too far forward.

The 2012's have a remote preload adjuster. That's the main change from the 2011's AFAIK. I hope they don't mess up the throttle. The instant throttle response is part of the fun ;)

AgentFossil,

Is this setup easily removable for dirt riding, or is it unobtrusive enough to be left on during dirt riding?

Buying A Used GS with Wilbers

I am considering buying a used GS with Wilbers set up for the PO who is 50 lbs heavier than me. Would I be able to adjust the shocks properly for my lower weight?
