Disappointed,I will be getting a Ktm 790.
I thought the standard model was supposed to have a larger fuel tank and windshield also I see they also put on small hand guards .The adventure model looks better but is a lot more expensive.
Disappointed in a bike that hasn’t been formally announced, specs laid out, or ridden by anybody. Interesting.
Right? People are being disappointed by speculation.
The 790’s such a disappointment.......I’m getting a Monkey!
I’m just going by the pictures and info that just came out showing the new 2020 models.The standard model didn’t get the larger tank or the larger windshield of the adventure model.I was waiting to see what the new Honda had to offer but it looks to have nothing over the 2019 model.The Ktm 790 has a 450km fuel range same hp less weight and you can get cruise control and tubeless tyres and cost less up here in Canada, people can look over the specs and decide for themselves what they want to buy.
There’s literally no firm, solid, actual details about the Africa Twin 2020/1100/whatever. Black and white pictures in an Australian government filing do not a bike make, in much the same way that EPA and CARB filing images are often not the same as the final production item.
Those pictures show only the ATAS version getting tubeless wheels. Man, that would be a pisser for many.
Another teaser in the YouTube channel...
Only one more week...
I am glad the headlights are symmetrical.
1084 cc, 100HP, key fob, new subframe.
The article says "Also, we would love to see a smart key with keyless ignition in the new bike."
And you don't think it's going to happen?
No, I don't. More to the point is that article made no reference to suggest there was any hints or evidence in anything that has been revealed that keyless ignition is on the offering, as opposed to the other changes you mentioned.
Wait and see, not long now
I thought that space was made by the VFR1200X which didn't do well here in the US.
CRF800L/D would look good in the new line-up. But that's too "rad" for big RED.
A couple friends kept spare final drives, just in case. Not sure if it's true but I've heard it's the single-sided swing arm design that's the issue as it places more stress on the shaft drive.
Get a T7, it seems to be beating the 790 in every shootout and Motorrad's speed times show it's as quick or quicker till you hit license shredding speeds.
Keyless is overrated, that fob is just one more thing to worry about losing on a ride. I forgot mine in the garage once, the bike reminded me of that when I went to start it at the store a few miles down the road. Luckily it had a system that uses the turn signals to input a code that allows it to start.
