    Still trying to work out why these comparison's just keep coming when the 790 is now discontinued.
    Still think it should be T700 compared to 690 or 701..

    I guess maybe because the 890 is not readily available yet (and near enough to a 790) and the T7 is only recently available in many places.

    Is the 790 duke and adventure discontinued?
    The KTM website still lists them as current models, maybe they are just getting rid of old stock but they usually discount when that happens

    KTM will keep them current until the 890's are here in numbers at least.
    They are heavily discounted though....in case youre looking :D

    And many complained when a comparison test was put up last week between the 700 Tenere and the 701 LR, saying that they are not bikes that should be compared!!!
    I would say it is a closer comparison between the 790 and 700 T than the 690 or 701s. They are a different type of bike and are singles.

    T7's desperately trying to match or better the 790.
    I think that the T7 falls in between 690/701 and the 790, basically a comfortable 690/701 with lower spec parts (brakes, suspension)
    I've said it before and I'll say it again if I were choosing between T7 and 790 I'd choose the T7 (this is without having tested either though)

    I saw Toby struggling in the dunes the other day, I nearly sent him my number to call me for some tips.
    They make it look so easy.
