Do you have a slightly larger image of that, I can't quite make it out at that resolution...

I thought he was just trying to show a new regulator/rectifier, is there more in that pic?

The stepped seat and obvious positioning of it and the tank are not in the strike zone for me. Give the big Adv a seating position like the 690, so you can get forward for cornering and you see what I'm looking for. There are a few SEs pictured in the forum with added on fairings, that with a slimmer rider compartment and less/better centralized weight with the same power is my preference. I bought the 950 to get away from useless things like 150 HP streetbikes.

no thanks, i can sit forward and ride the 690 like a dirt bike but that gets old on something designed more for mileage. 690 is sucky on the highway in part because of the seating position

You can't slide back? I know on my Adv and SE there is no way to get forward. Even on my 530 I can sit where I want, forward, back, middle. no obtrusions to hinder proper positioning.

When riding offroad I want to be on top of the bike with leverage. I don't want to be down in the bike.

You short legged fuckers are wrecking it for the rest of us!






hmmmmmmmm.....

Dear KTM..

please make a light weight 800cc v-twin motor that'll fit in this frame.

Love,
Geek.

Based on what i see, the exhaust routing is similar to Rallybike with 2-1. I think everybody realize that a skid plate is mandatory.

Ditto. The only time I sit is on pavement or above 130kph

From that new pic though the standing position seems OK. Obviously needs risers (they all do)

Especially not. Much better control when standing.
