i know the capacity is a lot less but what will the 390 Adventure cost/weigh?  this thing seems to tick nearly all the boxes!

Yes, not much talk about the 390 Adventure. The 390 Duke weighs 140kg dry, about the same as the PR7.

Looking forward to see the 390 Adv here! :thumleft:

Big Dom, maybe we must give these guys a chance! I think they are on to something here!

What else is available? The overweight(by 50kg) TenereT7 or the fat ass(by 50kg) 790Adv?...no thank you!

I am certainly happy to give it a chance.  :thumleft:  Just been on a 4 day trip with my Husky TE610E to the Thumper Bash - camping kit, all types of terrain and weather and she did not miss a beat. Some of the best riding I have had for a long time - this size, weight and type of bike is just awesome.

Agree! Perfect setup for a trip around the block OR round the world! O0

Fantastic! I hope they find and grow a market here.

I hope this bike is as successful  as it deserves to be - the prototype had the fuel filler cap behind the seat (as in 690 / 701) and they moved it to the front on the production model - much better.
The big manufacturers ignore these flaws in design which I find shortsighted at best and arrogant at worst.
Personally if this bike lives up to expectations I would be in the market for one- off the shelf ready to go - is this not what we ask for all the time ?
The big challenge for AJP is to establish a national dealer support  base.

Just thinking aloud - how different is this to an X-Challenge with the Touratech rally kit?

I wonder if the 60hp Is this with the power-up kit?

I believe so, 48 without..

I wonder if the service schedule is the same on both models?
