Lets hope they fitted some KYB SSS suspension to it as well.

They seemed to have on the protos. KYB are virtually the best pogos at present  :thumleft:

I have money on it that the T7 will come in under 180 wet

MT07 naked is 180 wet . Can't go much lighter than that

Speculation is that they will be 43mm. Why? On a 200kg 'off road' bike? I have 43mm on my 95kg Freeride and at times I wish they were the typical 48's. How much extra would it have cost them to spec larger forks and triples?

Triumph Tigers have 43" WPs. And Triumph owners are quick to point out that they have amazing "KTM" suspension  :pot: :pot:

Although I have a sneaky suspicion that the 790, or at least one or the models may have the 43s too

Both the T7 and 790adv are papsak fatties! The PR7 is the answer IMO!..or an adventurized 701/690..

Don't know why, but this bike tickles my excitement more than the KTM 790. Perhaps it's the narrower look?

But way taller in front - that is the dilemma with this type of twin. KTM solved it by slinging the gas tank down low like hang tiete and Yamaha have solved it by making the tank taller in front like a silicone boob job. The KTM keeps the COG low - the Yammie will suffer from top heaviness like the porno queen.

Although the 790's looks are growing on me It's still butt ugly,,,looking at the Yammi on the other hand eliminates the need for viagra!

Will they release specs as well? Weight, etc...

As a general rule yes, they release all the specs.

Hopefully this is false alarm, but there were quite a few rumours floating around internet about it being delayed further - either due to AvB not being happy with suspension or (more likely) uncertainity about upcoming Euro 5.

Here are latest pictures from EICMA, and at least on these it looks like the prototype and not final product - no passenger footpegs (as far as I'm concerned this bike shouldn't have them, but if it is final product I would expect them there), no flickers as far as I can see...

But maybe I'm just hearing and seeing ghosts, wouldn't be first time  :imaposer:

That tank also looks pretty small and stupid high. I really want to see what the COG of this thing will be...

I also think that's the prototype, albeit a later version than the one in the background. If it is the final product (complete with Akro????) then it's not for me, unless it comes in at a very good price. The question is how much are you prepared to pay for KTM's shorter motor, low tanks (and I don't care what anyone says about droop boobs they are the way to go from a function perspective), lower - and I would suggest significantly lower - COG, beefier suspension, higher torque motor, better padded seat for pillion and lower seat height and a couple other things I like about the 790.
As for the high tank on the T7. I had the original 600 Tenere. On a Monday morning I had to constantly remind myself not to drop it into the first corner on the way to work with a full tank...particularly after riding my IT 200 all day Sunday the day before. It was downright dangerous if you didn't think about it.
