Thx for posting this!

I've been waiting two years for this bike...

And now I'm not sure if I like what I see. It looks a bit wide around the engine area. May just be the pics.

Let's see when the production model pics come out.

Agree, Richard. The designer ran out of ideas when he got to the headlight ... again!

Yes she's carrying some extra luggage in the thighs but aside from that I love it. I like that the headlight has been mounted as high as it has; seems to double as a screen without having to actually mount a screen to the bike :p

Looks exciting.....but those mid / bottom plastics look like an after thought  ::)  I love the less is more concept - less cleaning...less damage in a tip over or fall  ;D

790 Adventure R prototype will be announced tomorrow. My guess is we'll probably see the production bike launched this time next year.

Ek soek nog heeltyd n worthy replacement vir my 990R. Die 1190 was nie heeltemal wat ek gehoop het nie. Tans is ek bikeloos. Ek het so gevoel ek gaan een van die eerste 790's in SA koop..

I see someone's copied Honda's CRF250Rally's black engine side-covers. ;)

But why the hell are they so wide on the 790??

Fuel

So that's fuel tank down there, either side of the engine crankshaft?

Or is KTM hiding the fact that they're using a Boxer twin?
