What kind of crappy comparison leaves out the mighty GS310?  :biggrin:

The 790R is the first bike that's seriously pulled me away from my 990 in terms of off-road capability.

Useless video though - no useful information aside from power, torque and weight numbers.

Clearly he's fired for uttering that veryvery infamous quote, after all anyone knows that the best there is is Durex!  ;)

Seriously though, Part 2 of that Utube I find a bitofa lamish correction if not confirmation (really?  ::) ) for the 301 being such a great bike.
I mean, give a few Africa Twin owners a CRF230 and see them being amused by what kind of obstacles they can traverse with that thing which are impossible to do with their own bike - but that doesn't make the little aircooled thumpertjie a better bike than the AT, it's why I wrote 'amused'  :P

I liked the video felt a bit short. would have been nice to get a more in depth comparisons between the two bikes\. What feels similar what feels vastly different etc.
But fun to watch as always.  :thumleft:

I enjoyed the video, no surprises or new info but very entertaining. Lots of Tellytubbies out there on GS's.... :imaposer: Just because the KTM's are to intimidating...

Lol, telly tubby 790 riders.

990 sou hom nog harder pakslae gegee het as hy dieselfde bande as 790 op gehad het.

I had to add 5cm to my 990s' seat. Can't imagine how cramped I would be on that built for midgets 790
