That is why KTM could never make everyone happy around here. Everyone is going to bitch about something silly. It doesn't SOUND right? If it runs like a raped ape, who cares how it sounds? Do you ride for the sound, or for the ride?

Its hopeless. A certain percent of people has decided to hate this bike, nomatter if they seen it or not. No matter engine, weight, exhaust, color, tank size, seat, electronic etc etc. Its gonna fall apart in the parking of starbuck where the idiots who bought them spend all their lifes. This moto they dont want! It must be irritating to open this site and see more and more information they dont want to see !
They nosayers here must build a bike for the rest of the world to see ! Their knowledge is superior!
Puhh

While the new Adventure is fairly large overall, it is slim in the middle, which helps give the bike a more manageable feel. The seat is commendably low but really could use more padding for comfort.

Mmm still not got the set sorted! Might stick with my 990 till Pebble35 comes to North Yorkshire on his vacation to pick up a hoodie ;) and gives me a test ride on his new toy.

A dirty old swede here loves dirtracing his SE but dont understand why so many badmouths starbucks coffe in this thread...just happened to pass by starbucks on 5th Ave NYC near times square on my way back home from a florida vacation...just wonderful lovely shy and young pretty gals over there, outnumbering the very few boys they bring with them that appear not enough men for them. the air vibrated of feminine hormons. Why the conflict with pretty gals and fun dirtbiking?

I found an other video. A little more relaxed than the previous rider. Seems like it is also possible to go slower....
