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.

Plus it looks like it’s a license plate and a set of indicators away from being street legal....


...and MIRRORS, its going to need mirrors!
Seriously, nice write up, Wes! A fair bit of Swart/Witpilen inspiration going on, with 790-style tank bulges? Full credit to Husky; the market needs such choices . Chris

Aha!
I have been predicting that the 790 would morph into an '801', same like the 690/701 - and I would have preferred having the 801 but wasn't prepared to wait for it!
With the now likely advent of an 890 Adventure coming this 901 may well make it, and a stunner it will be then!  :thumleft:

Too big for me though, it is why I got the 790 R: smallest KTM Twin but big enough to do longish tar sections, in fact I reckon that it's Katoom's best twin for doing offroad with!

What Honda 500 adventure ? The CB500X is 80% road orientated before you put a small fortune into it with a Rally Raid kit.

I'm willing to bet this thing is 90% KTM 790 underneath.

Like all Husky adv and enduro bikes

BUT

Huskies have better suspension (looks lik WP Pro on the concept) and a few other differences when compared to their KTM counterparts, the 690/701 being a good example

KTM, like they did with Husaberg, will probably “use” this bike for some technical innovation

Well that's what I mean  :laughing4:haha    I dunno how you can say "it's too big" when it's basically a 790?
