    Yes.

    MSRP is $14,599 + $550 freight, which works out to about $11,593 USD. The non R is 1g cheaper.

    Interesting. We signed a free trade with the EU, but I’ve never really noticed it before.

    I should have gone to Toronto to buy mine. I wonder if there would be any difficulties registering it in New York.

    I’m not good at public math conversions but that’s steal of a good deal. A 500 damn near cost that here. Seeing how my heritage is Canadian, maybe I should move back ‘eh.

    Reminds me of a poster from 1998 which hangs on the wall in my basement for years.

    I'm still in denial.

    I was speaking to a dealer (not one that knows me) recently and he asked if I was a diehard KTM fan. I replied "Nope. I'm not brand loyal." Then after a moment of introspection I told him "But the last 4 new motorcycles I've purchased were all KTMs..."

    Damnit. I may have a problem.

    LOL same for me. I have had a little aberration with Ducati, but mostly it's KTMs.

    So if all goes to plan... the Rally comes in around March. I finish the little bike ‘20 season on the thumper while prepping the Rally for BITD in ‘21. They’ve added an Adv class.

    Was at EICMA yesterday and the bike is really nice (with all that orange :D)
    But.
    Wheels on the exposed bike where disappointing: non tubeless DiD Dirt Star rims, and that's good, but in the same width as the standard bike. Tyre is still a 150/70 18 :dirtdog

    Yes, $15,149.00 CAD. for a KTM 790 Adventure R.

    A friend is currently looking into a new T700. He was quoted $11,999.00 plus $730 freight. Confirmed on the website. So that is $12,729.00 CAD.

    So the 790 Adventure R costs only $2420.00 CAD more here in Canada vs. the Tenere 700.

    Sorry, bit off topic. Back to the Ralley.

    That’s disappointing, did you catch the front size?
