    Jap inc. suck? More of "bike makers suck"...
    KTM press tomorrow? Where is that 690 Adventure? If it is not there - I'll say they all suck.

    Ah, and - where is that Ducati Strada Aperture or what's it called? Ducati revealed streetfighter, 1198 and new monster. Predictably. They are not Jap inc. thou..

    Perhaps it's just bad year... or good? I do not need to spend money? :lol3

    Looks like a rational response to the F800GS. I like it.:evil

    Nothing interesting from Honda either. Still it was an exceptionally good year last year (Tenere, F800GS, new Transalp etc...), so maybe we were expecting too much this time.

    We finally got the F800GS in the states. The Tenere, Transalp...sadly still not happening here. Thanks for nothing Yamaha and Honda.

    When (if) my Wee-strom sells I am in the market and that leaves the BMW 1200GS as the only choice. My experience, and those of a close friend with his 950, rules KTM out.

    Not much left for a choice. Situation normal. :ddog

    Sorry, Yamaha. The KTM SMT990 just knocked it out of the park.

    The rumours are that triumph intend the 675 tiger to be more off-road capable to fill the gap left by the old tiger. I guess that means 19" or 21" front wheel at least. But when? & do I have the energy to wait for more vaporware:chace
    Might find out more at the UK NEC end of this month.
