I cant wrap my head around why they put the mudguard so low down, Honda do it with bikes like the Transalp and Africa Twin, KTM do it everyone does it.. why? .. its problematic IMO, but still a good looking bike

Think they said this bike was going to be built as a tribute to the Cagiva of 1987, it too had a low fender. Speed across the desert, not worried about mud where a high fender works better

mud is one .. but the killer for a low mudguard is corrugation, honestly it cant be such a big deal to raise it a bit with a few spacers.

those rear tanks are the business  :thumleft:

I'm not sure how the low fender would be affected by corrugations?  The fender goes up and down with the fork lowers.  As long as its dry or very wet the low fender works.  Very wet like rain on a tar road. Not mud.  Ever.

Mud is the reason the Yamaha T7's front fender, while on the wheel, is height adjustable. So very clever.

Air/oil cooled. Selfde chassis as die Scrambler 800... Ek dink hierdie gaan maar net nog 'n step up wees van die Ducati Desert sled.
