    As a guy who dented his SMR header on the only gravel road it was ever on, expect to replace that header often!

    They always look better from this angle.

    Awesome road!

    Looks like a dr750/800 from that angle... "beak warning 1.0". But it sure gonna be one hell of a bike.

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

    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. :lol3

    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! :hide


    :rofl :freaky



    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.
