A 690 can do sustained 160 but you are going to get a little tired and youíll need some oil

That reads as a contradiction

My bike, the 701, is on standard gearing, and with perhaps exaggerated mechanical sympathy, I keep cruising speed capped at a max of 130 kmph.

It can cruise like this, purring along nicely, all day long.

Clearly, a 701 is then not going to work for someone wanting to cover tar distance at 160kmph or more.

Then this 790 will be better, but you pay the price with weight off-road.

Reading all these views, I think everyone needs a different bike for his preferred riding, some love a hardcore KTM500, other go with a 650 class bike, others again want something more cruise worthy, like a 790 or GS800, some like to ride alone, others enjoy groups, having said that I have been on a few trips with X-pat and we have yet to finish a ride together  :) :) which is fine. Personally I enjoy small groups, 2-4 riders, and have really enjoyed riding with X-pat, his dry sense of humour, and his immense experience is stuff I enjoy.
Current rides: Husqvarna TE 610 (2009),  KTM 950 SE(2007)
 KTM 500 EXC (2016)

It almost looks like they have glued on some big blobs at the bottom in these "spy shots".  Kind of similar to putting tape on cars to not reveal the final shape until launch.  And yes, this "spy photographer" is damn good at choosing locations.  Almost as good as a spy in a TV series.

Those blobs are low tanks ala LC8, not masking. Look at the prototype from EICMA for better view.

I know that but it seems more pronounced on this video/photo but maybe it just looks like that with all the black around there.
