And the price? You do not want to know...

Hint: divide by 6.
Looks like it's about 25000 NOK - USD 4000 - more expensive than the 990 ADV. Thought it was going to cost about the same?

It's the Norwegian tax system that makes it more expensive than the 990. We pay per ccm.

No mud at the mall parking lot.

Bring us a 690 Adventure, KTM!

I saw James Embro's 690 at the Colorado-600, wow what a sweet bike.

The thing sounds like a twin even though it's just a single.

I do remember seeing a slide like this one:



Except that it showed a 750-800cc twin on it.

Cant seem to find it though.

According to Dutch website Nieuwsmotor, which has just visited the firm's Austrian base and interviewed key staff, the new V-twin engines will include 1200cc, 1000cc and small 700cc or 800cc versions.....the smallest of the firm's planned V-twins, at around 800cc. will allow it to make models to rival Triumph's new Tiger 800 and BMW's F800GS.

We need to start a new "800 adv" thread and wait for two more years...
I'm glad I ordered a renazco seat, it looks like I'm gonna keep my 990 for a long time.

That article is incorrectly translated to English.
Quote:
De eind 2012 te presenteren Adventure zal mogelijk in verschillende motorconfiguraties komen, waarbij hij nog geen clinderinhoud wilde noemen maar wel aangaf dat er door modulaire bouw zowel een 1200, 1000 en een lichte ( "700 - 800") versie zou kunnen komen, als uitvloeisel van de "downsizing" in de motorcrossmodellen.
Which translates to (my own translation, maybe not perfect but a lot better):
Quote:
The at the end of 2012 to be presented Adventure will possibly come in different engine configurations, whereby he didn't want to state any dispacement yet but recognised that by modular build, a 1200, 1000 and a light 700-800 version could come, as a consequence from the "downsizing" in the motocross model range.

The problem KTM face is that they are a business and they want to make profit.

that can be one in two ways - build low volume, limited demand (and therefore high cost) models to meet the demands of the minority or go out and satisfy the majority and build bikes that will sell in higher volumes.

It is a sad fact that the majority of 'Adventure' riders do not do any more dirt than the odd gravel track, if that.

As a KTM dealer I have sold about 30 Adventures in the last 5 years or so. And one was used to transport the owner and his wife to Australia (where it is still being happily ridden around the outback) and one gets taken offroad occasionally (mine). the rest do not go offroad. And it is those riders KTM are targeting with the new bike.

Hopefully it will do well for them and ensure funds are available to develop a 'proper' mid range Adventure bike in the next few years ...................
