Compare the SuperDuke frame to the new Adventure  :mwink:

The 990 SuperDuke's frame is as close as it gets to the old 990 Adventure's frame.  The new 1190 Adventure's frame is significantly different from the 990 SuperDuke's.

I think it is great that there is a big difference between the standard and the R model and at 150hp the tyre companies are going to love them  :imaposer:

I think they have got the package right.

Talking about power and going up from 100hp to 150hp, what is the current 0-100 kmph time of a 990 adv? Anf what would the new one be? Must be faster than most supercars for sure!?
