Carolina KTM in Mooresville got their 790R on wednesday so they are here.
Glad to see they are starting to arrive. Not a great sign that it appears they are only getting a single bike at a time. May be a long time waiting for them to trickle in...
"The theme is the 790 Adventure," said Pierer. "We want to sell 15,000 of them next year“
I think the scarcity is largely intentional build up of anticipation
Tell us more about that...
Getting ready to mount 19/17?
Thats the one at Carolina KTM. Still available as far as I know.
I'm looking to trade my 1090r for one if anyone knows of a dealer in the midwest that will do that.
I can't imagine somebody didn't have a deposit on it. I put a deposit on my 790R in November before we even knew MSRP.
well, not everybody is a gambler.
Agree. I never understand how/why people buy bikes before they test ride them. I usually negotiate a weekend test ride with a new bike before I even consider buying it. That gives me a chance to try it on highway, city, mountain roads, in the dark and hopefully in wet conditions.
I did the same thing with my SAT in Nov. 2014
On their FB page they said that it was already sold, but would be on display for a few days. I'm surprised we're not hearing more reports of 790Rs showing up if they had one ready to go last Thursday.
Idaho dealer said they delivered their first one last week.
at my local dealer 790R was available on the floor since 2 months or so, nobody bought it so now it's a test bike.
I will arrange a test ride soon there.
It may be a generational thing, as a late 30-something I'm used to ordering almost everything off the Internet sight unseen. There's even a car dealership like that now - you pick your car online (never seeing it or driving it) and they deliver it to your house.
Seeing all of the hugely positive press, very few negative comments - mostly boiling down to "I just don't want this kind of bike" - and the fact that every person I personally know with a KTM loves their bike, I feel assured that I've ordered a quality machine that's going to perform as advertised.
I'm also in my late 30s, buy lots off the internet but always research before I buy and try everything I can before hand. Nothing to do with 'generations', simply trying before I buy when it comes to high value purchases.
Thats funny! A "generational thing". A couple of generations ago, many folks got married without a test drive...sight unseen.
Those were the good old days...
Your lucky to be able to test ride bikes so easy, not so easy around here. If I only bought bikes I had a chance to test ride I sure wouldn't be on a KTM
