In our last Reader Shootout, we asked you about two heavyweight adventure bikes.  This time we are moving down the size category a bit and ask you about two well-loved “middleweight adventure bikes; KTM’s 790 Adventure R and BMW’s updated F 850 GS Adventure.

The KTM has been somewhat of a phenom during its rollout.  But now that it’s been out for a while, let’s get some feedback from folks who have had a chance to ride either or both of these bikes for more than a day or two.  With all the hype surrounding the KTM 790 Adventure, it will be interesting to see how well one or both bikes perform in your opinion(s).

You can rate both or only one of the machines.  We are aggregating your responses, so please only respond if you’ve ridden the bike and had time to draw some impressions.  Last time the results for the two big ADV bikes were very close.  It will be interesting to see whether these two “middleweights” will earn similar numbers.

After you are done, let us know what you think about the machine(s) you rated.  Also, to help get a larger, more representative sample, please share this post on social media.  The more inputs, the more accurate the results may likely be.


What other bikes would you like to see against each other?  Let us know in the comments below.
