For those that have the Standard (non-R), how does it perform on gravel, loose dirt, light to medium sand? Nearest dealer does not have any R models in stock, but has several standard models.
Can the standard model handle the ID and CO BDRs? I realize these are two different ends of the off-road spectrum.
Yep, the S will handle all the BDR's easy. However IMO the R will handle better, faster and easier.
I have rode them on a 1190, they are designed for big adventure bikes, a 500-pound 790S well cruise over them easy. BTW my 1190 at full camp gear is touching 700lbs .
That is a lot of standing weight. Good to know.
The BDRs are more a wish than reality, but I figure if it can handle that, then the fire roads, forest service roads, and occasional rutted dirt road would be easy enough. I’d rather have the R version, but nothing close by.
If you want the R then go to your dealer and put down a deposit to reserve one. Yeah it will require some patience, but don't settle for something that is not what you really want and then regret the purchase.
Which would you rather have??
Which one is the R? Lol
The only real difference is the adjustability of the suspension right? I mean if you don’t like the low fender or color-way all that’s interchangeable. Can you get the tech pack on the S so you can get rally mode? I love that new grey color on the S.
This probably doesn’t help.
Seems the suspension is the major difference. Only 7.9” travel front and back. And not as much adjustability. Course that means less ground clearance as well.
Slightly shorter in overall length (by like an inch).
Rally and tech packs are same options.
Definitely need different tires.
I rode the S and was very impressed. the suspension has a weird, crashy feel but it gets the job done. I would be happy to own one for doing graded fire roads and the like.
Having said that, I got the R so I could do dumb stuff. If you want to do that the R gives you more headroom
Koso Apollo grips have just that type of controller. I had a set that I had been holding on to for a couple years until I picked up my 2021 890 Adventure and had them installed. They are exactly what I wanted. No bulky controller strapped to the bar (hello Oxford!) and a simple one button controller to scroll through three very effective heat settings (blue, orange and red). Get 'em if you can.
Hey just to make sure the link is for the size of the 790/890 bars correct 120mm?
Will there be any difference after both of them are briefly dipped in dirt?
Similar system has the guzzi v85tt. A button for the on/off/temp and the icon in the TFT with the selected level
Well....you have to take off the glasses.....and....the clothes for me to be sure
If anyone is searching for how to take the DB Killer / Baffle out of the 890 R Rally Akrapovic Muffler, I can tell you that it's a major pain!!
The bolt that you normally just remove to slip the baffle out is welded into place. I think I wrecked 3 drill bits drilling the bolt so I could remove it.
You can get to the bolt by drilling a hole in the end cap underneath, assuming they are all in the same spot on all pipes, but you can't just undo the bolt. Mine was welded in with no chance of breaking the welds.
So was it worth it?
The sound is good with the baffle out, not loud at all. But I'm not sure I'd do that again. It is a major pain. I'd only recommend it if you really want to keep the Akro.
cruise control issue still going on. my 155mi on 890 adv r cruise control already stop working and most of dealer service center require a month of waiting list to get serviced.
I was thinking to do that.. hum is Akra slip on that come with factory rally version is same form purchasing aftermarket one?
I have 890 adv R and ordered Akrapovic slip on
