it Will be heavy, take three years to Start building, US will get it a year later, maybe.
I don't think kawi is as dopey as the t7 marketing team...nothing could be that jangled up.
I'd say they worked within the reality of the situations they faced and in the long term Yamaha is going to sell a lot of them in the US and elsewhere. Already they seem to be doing very well.
I'm not holding my breath
go then, to what , a 70s tech street bike with a bikini fairing? 5 inches of non adjustable travel is enough for youl? the need to rally raid it afterward?
Yeah, that's one of the sore points with the Kawi or Suzuki. Yamaha at least did very well with the CP3 and CP2 engines-they are fun peppy motors. Though they could offer more on terms of kit for sure. The reason I like KTMs is all the performance helped by all the tech squeezed into the package- gives it the extra fun factor when riding. And riding is all about fun, even at 10 mph.
Anyone know a north american/european brand that build that kind of riser ? Our bar are tappered but 26mm instead of usual 28mm (790, and most of allbthe other bike).
Yes, count me in on that one if it appears.
I think most are looking for the spacer type riser, the clamp end will remain stock.
A lot of people with KTM 790's pay $$ to have the poorly executed electronic nannies deleted. I like ABS on pavement, but offroad all the gadgets are annoying at best
I have found the front abs in the dirt to be a great feature. Has worked so well on the few occasions I 've been offroad.
Could you link me to those handguards?
I like it too ! Even the TC is great on gravel road, it's fun to slide and all but with the TC on you feel more confidence at high speed !
That shiny lever does traction and wheelie control. The one on the 990 is equally effective
No they don't. It can all be switched off if you are a Luddite and want to make the bike harder to ride.
Neither are as effective as the current computerised versions, and require much more rider effort and skill.
Just last night I was watching a YouTube video of a bloke single-tracking his new 790R. "Let's see what the baby can do " he says. Our hero then proceeds to turn the Rally Mode TC down to 1 (minimum). Guess what happens on the first really gnarly tricky climb? The bike spins up the rear and it steps sideways and it all comes to a stop. Hero to zero just like that.
And I'm shaking my head thinking "shoulda left the TC on". He was a good enough rider to get up there with the TC doing its job.
The whole point of Rally Mode TC is so that you can adjust it to be only as intrusive as necessary, generally varying it about the middle. Just right then he needed a shitload of intrusion.
Oh so you've personally interviewed every 790 owner extant then?
The electronic nannies on a 790 are as poorly executed as the quickshifter on a 390adv.
Worse yet, all of that nonsense necessitates the awful second guessings of the dreadful throttle by wire system.
I suppose you think that's a plus too, right?
Maybe it's best to simply have it do the riding for you as well?
Learning to ride properly? With skill?
Ain't nobody got time for that, amirite?
This post is so wrong it's just overflowing with wrongability.
Nobody pays any money to turn off the so-called nannies on a 790 because they can all be turned off as standard.
Not exactly, and if you should stall, the crap can reset. Hence the reason some people don't like them.
Some people are really into the purity of the riding experience. Practice and improving skills is a key part of the enjoyment.
