I cant see how it would fit a luggage rack.

And it needs a tailtidy so as to not brake off the numberplate brackets etc.

And it is going to need a bigger screen.

One frame spar change in my opinion counts as a new model we should be happy about. Capable single that just came out in a sea of glorified road bikes. Correct that in this day and age it's great this type of bike is still being made. All of 10 people commented on it in the general section yet a GS 1200 releases a new colour scheme and we are up to 200 pages of excited banter.

True. The difference lies in supply and demand; Other forums are just as busy discussing the latest 450's and I believe that more people have a need for purpose built bikes.

I do find it hard to picture a long, fruitful future for the 701. In my view, it's an acquired taste kinda bike. Similar to the 610 and XRR it's made for a certain kind of biker.

Our rides need more than 13L of fuel, especially on a 690..

Very nice looking and good intentions Husky BUT lets be honest -  just a recycled 690 that has been to the gym a bit (no steroids just protein drinks)  :peep wall:
Hopefully just a stocking filler while they do something serious.

I'm enjoying my Te610 too much to find interest in the 690/710. To many smiles left on my bike. :ricky:

Smart move i think from ktm as the 690 is quite popular and there is still a market. We all know it is a pimped and rebadged 690 but who cares? I will not mind one but my budged will not allow......

Was holding out for it...then decided i'm spending too much mony on bikes as it is.

Got a XChallenge recently that needs work and going to sell the 800, ...but man...if circumstances where different I'd be on this like white on rice.

Barring import taxes, that's R150K
