790 tank design, better radiator?, a bit more power, larger exhaust, radar cruise control optional.....

Ek dink die gaan weer n wenner wees van KTM, met n bietjie nuwe tegnologie in wat die ander bikes in die stof gaan laat byt.


Waar kan ons pre orders insit  :biggrin:

Op die oomblik geniet ek my 1190 so baie dat ek nog nie reg is vir n upgrade nie. My fiets stap darm al 70k toe so sal seker een of ander tyd moet. Ek like die nuwe look van die fiets en die subframe lyk ook sterker.

I wonder how big the tank will be? Moving the CG downward can only be a good thing. Means I can sit through the technical sections and stop looking like a meerkat!  :ricky:

Not sure if I must wait for this model or get the current model. Sort of like the naked engine look of the current model more. Planning to buy before the end of the year.

the performance should be very similar, so if you're buying your 1st KTM 1290, I'd grab a 2nd hand one at a good price - these are amazing bikes!

I would never wait.

Some people are re-doing bifocal subscriptions waiting for a certain Yamaha....

Im ready to be proved wrong, but Im thinking the low tank won't make as big a difference as it has on the 790. It's still a big heavy bike so Yeh, I dunno.



I went 1190-1290 SAR and offroad they're much of a muchness.  Travelwise the 1290 is MUCH better though with the bluetooth toys etc.

Die exhaust kort nog bietjie werk.

Lyk of 'n B.Y.M hom design het

Hy sal vinnig innie rommel beland. Aftermarket suppliers gaan fees vier om daai stuk blik te vervang met iets wat die oog en oor streel.
