It's called the Montesa Honda 4Ride
Whoa check that out!
Cool. Still has that shifter too far away for heavy shifting but I like it.
Not even close.
The 690 feels a lot heavier because it weighs 346 lbs., at least according to the road test in Dirt Rider last month.
No, the 690 is exactly 57 pounds heavier than the 450L "ready to ride."
I've heard there is less gravity in Austria, hence the discrepancy!
In what universe is WP Xplor better suspension than Showa? Also, when measuring apples to apples, the 450L is almost 60 pounds less than a KTM 690.
The 690 is impressive enough to stand on it's own merits. You don't need to gild the lily
In no way, under any circumstances, in any country, planet, or universe has any WP Xplor every come close to the ride, handling, and quality of a Showa or KYB. To even jokingly make such a claim is asinine.
I can vouch for that.
Guys that is like a 4 months old message which got already bashed 4 months ago
Sometimes you have to step on the cockroach more than once, just to make sure it's good and dead!
True, but the road test that gives the actual wet weight of the 690 just came out, so it made for more satisfying fisking.
I wonder if Alexa could kick Siri's ass..
I asked Google but she was an indecisive Bitch..
Put 50 miles of country and dirt roads (50/50) on the maiden voyage last weekend. I have been riding Harley street bikes for a lot of years. I had more fun than I have had in a long time riding the L. Came home with a big grin and told my wife that I might just sell one of the Harleys. Can’t wait to really get out into some back country. Yeah, the seat sucks, but I’m still grinning.
Then the purchase is well justified. Let me know if you're ever up to coming over the border into Texas again to ride.
I have seen your pics of riding on the beach and that looks like fun. I'll let you know if I get out that way.
If anyone wants a cush hub for their L or wheels..
