    This may seem like a newbish question but I have seen reports and specs listed all over the internet ranging from 436 lbs all the way to 500+ lbs. I realize I have to account for my rack and crash bars, but throwing that aside, what is the ACTUAL weight of the ktm adventure? Wet/dry?

    Most truck scales are on even when closed. Take a run to your local weigh station.

    Take your worst estimate and add 50 lbs. Seriously. I had my bike trimmed of all excess weight (single exhaust, single front brake rotor, Talon hub, no crash bars, no rear racks, no luggage rack, etc.) for a big rally and it still weighed in at over 450lbs with only 2 gallons of fuel. They are big bastards.

    jesus christ. I thought I at least was under 500lbs with the thing

    Someday I might see how much of the bike I can replace with carbon fiber. Maybe I will ditch my pannier mounts for a giant loop. Though I feel like those things add some protection to my exhaust.

    Here is what I've noticed about these bikes. They have a way of making one think that scales lie. Drop her into gear, let out the clutch and a 150lbs disappear.
