    In the spirit of the upcoming AT - Ï want to confirm the new 800 Adv by KTM will be better than anything ever produced before and because there ARE one or two unconfirmed pics I can speculate with all authority that it will be better than the new Honda because;
    it will be lighter, (plastic engine construction reducing already light weights by 20%)
    better longer travel suspension, (cone valves for everyone)
    better steering angles and a tighter turning circle (because better is just better),
    better wheels and hubs (again better is better),
    frame and fuel tanks blending into one with capacity for true RTW riding if required,
    and it will be all things to everyone (even if they dont know or want to know).
    The tech will be so smart that it will appear to be tech-less with gps updates and tech support.

    Of course there is a link to the spy pics - but in keeping with the above they do not show the actual adventurer because it is that well disguised.

    The Honda is outdated already.......

    My thinking is that they will leak sneak peaks of a bike that encompasses the best design elements of RRs from days past and present but unlike hoonda the end product will stay true to the marketing

    I'm betting some of the Honda converts will be rethinking their down payments in the immediate future

    It's rumoured that you can have any colour you want (at no extra charge) for either of the 2 models in the line up. I believe they're called the Awesome and Super Awesome
    No discrimination here
    Also KTM will supply and tune your suspension to your preference as part of the delivery package.
    Again this bike and moreso the sales experience will be a game changer

    Yes. A 390 Adv
    And in keeping with the tuktuk/ Moto / cab theme it will be an auto with paddle type controls to change manually if you like.
    All 100% reliable

    Does this mean that they have given up on fixing the problems with the 690 and will just replace it with a new model? But its only been 8 years, and Ready to Race!

    Ok
    Just back from the stealership. As usual the salesman was fully up to date on the latest developments and showed me in great detail the options and colours that I could specify all included in the price
    Yep you guessed it. I've put down a deposit!!!!
    The deposit amount is a percentage of the total bike cost - and this is where KTM insert the algorithms into the customer. That's right. None in the bike, the customers get the alges right in the a$$. Trading my 990 and the SE was a no brainer, got a great deal!!!
    I can't wait to throw a leg over the nappa suede seat covering the no memory foam on my enduro seat
