    Details are scarce at the moment, but it looks like a rival to the 1050 Tiger.
    Those are bag mounts and the tank is 19lts.

    Not nice/different enough to make me get off my "standard" 950SM; but I think I'll have seat envy :lol3

    Future comparo: this, Tiger, MultiStrada, Tre-K, Uly XT, ...

    holy crap. KTM just built the perfect motorcycle.

    i have a GS. I have a 950SM.

    this provides some of the best qualities of each, all wrapped up in one!

    I like that so much my brain hurts.

    Well done KTM - practical, sexy, and powerful. Perfect.

    The Multistrada is dead. Long live the NEW Multi.... ah, er, I mean, 990 Supermoto Travel!

    This bike (if it makes it to the US) is going to put a LOT of non-KTM riders in KTM showrooms.


    Pssst! The RC8R doesn't look so bad either:

    When I bought my Triumph, I told myself 'no changes' for awhile. Looks like that could go completely out the window...especially if this has available abs :evil
