KTM 390 Adv

sibirskyextreme had this to say on instagram...

Also had a good look at the new KTM 390 Adventure. While a group I was with had all been hoping KTM would come up with a credible light adventure bike, we were all left disappointed by this effort. It's quite heavy for a small bike at 160kgs, has poor quality components, very little ground clearance, and cast wheels with the barelyest there of spoke-age ... I can't help but think those wheels will not survive one day of off road riding in tact. But as an insider was heard to remark ... At least it's cheap

My exact thoughts on the cast rims. Perhaps the bike is aimed at the Indian market as an entry level "adventure" bike. I would rather buy a second hand 790.

Like BMW's GS310, this is just an Indian bike. Mutton dressed up as lamb.

Agree. I appreciate what they are trying to achieve for maybe the younger generation/market, but to me that is not a Harley.

What is wrong with the D/S bike manufacturers? Why don't they listen to the floods of comment and criticism of every new offering?

Surely if only they would listen and take note they would be producing the kind of machines that every rider says they would like to see, but wouldn't actually buy for themselves.  :3some:

No more news on the Honda CRF 450 Rally L. This was such a nice looking prototype last year and seemed to be close to what a production bike would look like.... come on Honda, give the people what they want!!

With Q1 sales figures of the crf450l in Aus (only country I could find sales figures for) at 63 bikes I doubt Honda will be be rushing to build a derivative of this model.
