And O Yes please no one buy a KTM they are super KAK especially the SE it has no screen, terribly uncomfortable and super boring!  :pot:

No, it's only the airbox seal on the 690 that is kak  :)

Dont forget the wiring and the stupid tank and the bash plate and the hard seat and ... and...

all I am saying is that us fun loving hooligans should stop buying these Kak Austrian machines that are made in India making them not even compatible with our fuel.

If you have not picked up yet. All above is drivel and ranting from withdrawal symptoms from not riding for 10 days and the stupid comments about how Kak KTM's are most from whom have never REALLY ridden one. Yes us Greyhounds have fucked some bikes up. WE CAN! Mainly because riding a plastic bike route with a plastic bike is just fucking boring. We take block of flats and overweight hippo's where mountain goats play. We get fucked up tired and go to bed sore but with a big smile on our faces. Please dont buy these bikes!!!!!!

On the serious side that AT is pretty good.

@ Dom never expected a fine art PROF to ride. I have seen you fucked up tired but still smiling.

Dom's fine art work comes in handy when fixing sumps.

As per OP cant wait for this to come out so we can try and fuck it up too  :peepwall:

Don't worry TJ, I know your frustrations!

I was racing KTM's back in the 80's when they were made in Austria and required maintenance after every ride.

In those days I used to tow Maico's on a regular basis back to the start.  :biggrin:

Looking sweet. I see no beak are the following Honda here. I see everyone said the Honda front wheel was going to clog up. Obviously KTM dont think so.

No KTM as far as I know ever had a beak so what makes you think they are following Honda? As far as I can see AT followed 950 13 or so years later. And it seems Honda at best will be following KTM into middle weight segment (at worst they will just do nothing).

Is it just me or does the seat height look quite low?

Hopefully there will be a R model - actually a SE model :) I know it is early days but I am yawning... but looking forward to seeing what that engine can do and the weight of the final bike. I think KTM must not hang back too much as the Japs will have the jump on them very quickly and they will be playing catch up again.

Low mudguards can clog in very muddy conditions - that is why you will notice that even the Dakar rally bikes swap them around depending on the weather.

Reply sorry you are right I am getting confused. :-[ But I think you will find the original AT was out long before the 950. My apologies. I have just seen some of Hondas new prices. I think a lot of people will be moving over to KTM with the Honda extreme price increases.

Agree, the 390 adv spy photos also. But maybe KTM use tall okes to test the bikes!

So much aggression and anger, you are either hiding your true feelings or you need to talk to somebody that can help release these feelings of angst and jealousy.
