    For now it is just a prototype. Maybe it will arrive in 2021.

    @alongat and I were at EICMA yesterday, making our TripleClamp Moto pilgrimage to the holy show. We saw this baby in flesh. There were no half naked models laying over the seat unfortunately, sorry. Alon tried to jump on the bike wearing nothing but his boxers and boots but they took him down.

    We are heading back to the show this morning, let me know what you wish to see and I will do my best to show it and post here. IMG_20191105_222614_240.jpg IMG_20191105_222614_241.jpg 20191105_161801_HDR.jpg 20191105_161442.jpg 20191105_160541.jpg

    Try not to show any pictures of your erections - that is one seriously hot bike

    Probably because there is a BMW forum (Gspot) and a KTM forum (Orange Crush) and one for all other "Adventure Bikes Not Made by BMW or KTM" (Beasts) so this would be the correct forum.

    Just following orders, SUH!!

    Very good looking. I'd like to know the weight tho. It's still a KTM so no chance i'd take it for long trips.

    Anyone know what the bracket on top of the fuel tank is for? Just a tie point for a tank bag? Useless trim piece?:ear

    I can hear the questions now "What's a Norden?"........maybe they should called it a Norge, a joke for all you old time appliance fighters :D
    My guess it is an bracket for an on purpose quick on and off tank bag to match the Husqvarna luggage, either not done or they didn't want to show it at the reveal.
    Also I can hear the questions now "What's a Norden?"........maybe they should've called it a "Norge", a joke for all you old time appliance fighters out there, :D

    A guy I know took a new 701 to his trip to Tunisia and brought it back on a truck. He bought new, ran it in, made a first service, shipped it there and it broke in a few days. The other one had an engine failure at home. Not a very reliable product.

    @motolover it's basically the same as a KTM, are they just as (un)reliable?

    That bike looks super rad. Slap a high mount front fender on it and ride the wheels off. I like... a lot.

    The KTM 390 ADV looks interesting so a couple shots there would be nice, but see if you can find out what happen to the small bore twin that KTM's CEO was talking about...

    I don't like the 17" 19" wheel combination.
