    Quite an ample article in Motorrad (which I can't read).

    This thing looks almost ready for production. Which means at least 18 months to 2 years away for an 800ADV. I better start saving now, fuck it's going to be a long wait.
    90-100hp, <200kgs, min. 20L fuel, quality 1190R suspension and NO fancy electrickery doodads if that's ok thanks Mr Peirer.
    Now, which one of those requirements will I actually get?

    There are some unpleasant things in those photos (cable clutch and other cheap stuff) that are quite un-characteristic for KTM. The article, however, seems to imply Austrian manufacturing, not Indian.
    On the other hand, the bike seems very compact and small, almost like a 690. If they DO make an Adventure on this chassis, it's gonna be interesting.

    This motor is designed by Kurt Trieb in Mattighofen.
    The engine will be built at the engine plant of KTM in Munderfing.
