The Ultimate ADV bike

I'm shamelessly recruiting you to take a look at a posting I make in another thread...

80MPH cruising, single-track killing, 6 speed, 800cc twin, off-road, high performance KTM800 Adv concept bike based on dirt-bike/adventure bike platform prototype I'm working on bringing to life...

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=959020

since, as proposed, there really isn's a perfect place to post this, I thought I throw a line out here to.

:-)

Would be a TT 660 R based on a XT 660 R, but much more lighter, with better suspension and a 18"-rear wheel

Or a KTM 690 Enduro with more fuel capacity and the engine (or the punch) of the XT 660

Or, as a beast, the new MT-07 in a Ténéré-Style with 21/18-rims

Yessss please!

I shamelessly assert that the 950SE satisfies all of the above and exceeds some.

I agree!

990 all the way. And a 690 has a lot more punch than an XT660, by the way.

The 690 has more power overall, but the XT has more "punch" in low and middle regions, a bit like a tractor, a bit old school steamhammer-character. Perfect for smooth travelling. Had the Supermoto-Version, loved the bike!

The KTM is a modern single, needs more engine-speed.

Both are good bikes, but I would prefer the steamhammer-engine in a lightweight bike.

one can hope they make a 690 adventure, BUT i agree about the 690 not having the same "grunt"
