    The "collective".

    It wasn't too hard to figure out the 790R would check in around 460-470 lbs with a full tank once they published a dry weight. All I did was compare the dry weight
    spec of the 790 Duke compared to published real world wet weight and then do the math. ;)

    Rade garage weighed a 790 adv r at 197kg. That was with (they say) a few litres of fuel, so with a full tank of 20 liters ( about 18 liters more at 0.75kg/liter) that would make it about 210.5kg (463 pounds) fully fueled... so you guessed well sir!

    few === couple or few == more then a couple ?
    what im saying we dont know whats a few liters is 5 liter vs 2 liters is a difference in weight.

    the way i look at it dry weight 189kg + 20 liters of fuel ~ 15kg = 204kg
    now add oils and coolant. you think its another 5kg?

    I've always suspected that KTM considers tires a consumable and therefore subtracts the weight of them (and the battery) when listing dry weight... LOL.

    I heard that. The 1190R was getting borderline for me to pick up while solo in dicey situations otherwise it would still be my long distance exploration bike. The 690 is just a bit too unpleasant to crank big pavement miles on when I want to get somewhere far away in a hurry.

    That leaves me the option to trailer across the country with a plated dirt bike or give the 790 a try... and I don't like taking motorcycle trips in my car. ;)

    I won't kid myself though. The 790 is no dirt bike. Hopefully KTM has masked the physics of tossing over 450lbs of bike around as well as it can be done.

    I’m thinking about getting the standard and comparing it to my GS which is heavy and tall. I wish I knew the cost of cruise control and quick shifter. Everything’s a trade off. I love the GS when droning along to get somewhere but it’s a pig, a very comfy pig. Maybe I need two motorcycles.
