What do you guys think of the spy photos of the 2022 ktm 890 I like the new look
so you just gonna throw that out there and leave- how bout some examples
I was thinking the same thing. Kind of like saying check out hot girlfriend and not posting a picture
I'll be interested in the Norden. Last I heard they were saying this fall?
Not sure how to post pictures but if you google it you can find it
Here's what I think
Pannier racks are dumb.
Seems like they are trying to make it a little more of a sit in rather sit on bike. Affording the rider better protection and highway comfort more like the Honda AT which is probably a better continent crossing machine. I bet when Honda release the 850 AT they go the other way, (especially after their Dakar wins) and try to make the bike more dirt focused.
I guess they'll be bringing the 890 in line with the 1090, 1190, 1290 design wise. These now have or will get lower gas tanks, if a little less extreme than the 790/890.
Almost like the weird look of the 790/890 was a concept, on the way to developing this leaked 890. That they just ran with. Just shows how differntly KTM operate. Honda spend an age bringing out a mini africa. KTM cant even keep the 790 adventure for an extra year before bringing out the final 890 adventure.
According to the leaked model line up from a year ago. Theyll be a 890 super enduro/moto s coming soon so maybe good to differentiate more.
To my eyes this looks like a minor adjustment to "fix" the looks of the bike. I wouldn't expect much improvement in terms of wind protection. Sitting position should feel the same. Tank hasn't changed. Even headlight stays mostly in the same position.
This is a gif:
I like the changes and hope the new winglets will fit the previous models. Might even help with wind noise and / buffeting.
Yeah looks like an excise in asthetics and wind management.
But someone has to mention the iconic 990!!!!!!
That camo prototype looks like a step towards it, to me, looks wise.
Literally just sent a message to my riding bud saying how the 790R will be a long term investment, that'll keep it, and mod to suit me and my needs etc, blah, blah, etc.......I WANT A 9(8)90!!!!!!!
Could it be the Norden prototype in the pictures?
First saw them pictures 6 months ago if not more...
I hope the windscreen ftom the 2022 can mount on my 2019.
Looks really good
Those are all pre-production test mules.
Even then, they look like the current 890.
Most people don’t like the protruding headlight the 2022 fixed that
A less ugly KTM?
