Fuel

So that's fuel tank down there, either side of the engine crankshaft?

Or is KTM hiding the fact that they're using a Boxer twin?

lol

Yup, fuel, that black piece wher it splits at the bottom can come off. A skidplate of sorts.
No more ugly POS crashbars.

looks fairly slim from these angles

Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept your it. All else is madness.

That fuel tank reminds me a little of the HRC rally bikes. Only time will tell but there are potentially 2 or 3 variants here depending on the fuel tank and fairing options

Omninorm, I absolutely agree with you on crashbars, to me the ugliest stuff you can possibly put on a motorcycle.

But.....I sincerely hope this 790, with it's very wide lower tanks, will not also still need crashbars around those tanks to protect them. :eek7: :eek7:

Those things you erased are the "Protection / Skidplates" or whatever you want to call them apparently
Well the pieces that you can see is seperate from the top black plastic.

It's exactly the same as the 450 Rally

Lets try a picture of what I'm trying to say.



You can clearly see here that the fuel tank is behind that plastic.



It's 2 seperate pieces. Yes the fuel tank goes that low...but around it is that plastic/skid plate like thing.
If thats polyurethane or thick molded plastic...then thats a fantastic idea.

I think it looks nice. But, the marketing kills me.
This sentence "Say Hello to the Trail-Shredding KTM 790 Adventure". Who are they kidding?

Weights in at around 180kg, so calling it a "trail shredder" is a bit rich. Sell if for what it is, a really capable adventure bike and not an enduro dirtbike.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

Yeah, people see the pic of that dude riding up that hill jumping etc. Think if they buy that bike that will automatically be them   :biggrin:

The Headlight/instrument nacelle seems like it is going to seriously impede your vision to the front, as in seeing the front wheel when picking a way through Van Zyl's pass?

The rest of the bike is good looking.

I very much doubt that a production bike will have fuel that low down, I just can't see that happening. Looks to me like the rear tank is still there but somewhat smaller than the current bikes.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!
