    Deposit put down yesterday once I saw the dry weight:eek1 Blew my mind that the listed dry weight is slightly less than my 2010 990 SMR. I have heard various estimates about when it might hit the states-from early next summer to fall 2014. Will have to sell my SMR to get this bike, but won't do that until I have a better idea when the beast will arrive!

    Yea he just bought a Duke 690 a few months ago and has been drooling over the Super duke so he went and talked to them said they were getting 3 in Nov/Dec not sure on the price... Looking at the 1190 ADV @ 16899 its pry in the same range or a hair more 17899 or close to it

    It's a crazy bike to be sure, but I find something has been lost in the translation from the Prototype R they had at Goodwood....maybe it's just the headlight and exhaust....dunno....there's somehting not quite the same.....:huh

    same here. like it's been watered down.

    December 2013 delivery? no way.

    KTM street bikes don't arrive until april/may.

    that's a lot of power! I'll keep my RC8R and keep the wind blast off my chest :-)
