Further reality check...hmm...
this exactly is the point of the 950/990 success...a modded 950/990 is still one of the best bikes you can have right now... And we are talking about a bike that is almost 20 years old
What does the Norden 901 need to make it better than a modded 950/990?
Sorry, the 990 is nobody's bitch!
And maybe 9x0 bodywork
I totally agree @opanos But to compare a bike that isn't even in production yet, to a bike that has been modified over 20 years is a bit unrealistic :)
Just wanted to point that out. Maybe in 20 years, we will have the same discussion but with a tricked out Norden. Let's hope!
Agree. And my 990 will be buried with me.
But has over 120k km, I need something else to wear out while preserving her (that is my excuse and I'm sticking with it)
The headlight reminds me more of a large off road race light more than anything retro or Hipster inspired. I really like the over all package. Looks great.
the same competent rider.
People hanging on to the 990/950 would be the ones that haven't really tested the 790r yet.
No need to test it out.
My plan was to get one early next year.
With "was" being the key word here...
@keener - the real question we all want to know is if the screen and wraparound fairing will bolt on to the 790. Probably need to swap tanks too, seeing how the molding lines are different.
Its interesting that KTM/Husky chose to put the 890 engine in this bike, instead of the 790. I wonder if we'll get a KTM890ADV
I meant the bike, not the average rider
As some else already pointed out, the 890 is Euro5 compliant. Not sure if the 790 is or not, but if not, there WILL be a KTM 890ADVR before Jan 2021. My guess is the reason they aren't talking about it/showing it is to not take away from any 2020 sales for people who might decide to wait if they knew it was coming.
Specifications: weight?, seat height, weight, seat height, did I mention weight?
This looks like a production-ready machine, not a concept bike.
I would be shocked if this wasn’t released as a 2021 model in the second half of 2020.
More: looks like it has a decent (ie tall) seat height.
Beautiful lines, too.
I'm sure it will be a good travelbike and even I can see some resemblances to the 990 Adv (in a vague moment..)
But it will never be a 990, hell not even the 790 is close in my eyes, either by looks or the engine departement, but it's good in another way...
I am still very disappointed over the way they treat the Husqvarna legacy and making the hardcore world champion brand a... regular day softie...
Biggest problem now (to argue about the whole winter) will be where to place a twin Husky... will it get it's own subforum..
