I don't understand this "Electronics!!" fear.

A 990 has just as much electronics that can fail and stop the bike running as a 790.    Most of the more advanced stuff on a 790 will not stop the bike running if they fail. You'll get an error message and maybe some flashing lights etc, but the bike will still go.

Check out NERB1's video of "killing an 1190" or something like that on youtube.  He got water into the dash and electronics on an 1190. The speedo died, rev counter, every error possible flashing and going mad on the dash etc, but the bike kept starting and running.

Having your MTC or ABS fail will just mean you don't have ABS or MTC (which apparently some people would love!) It doesn't mean you're stranded.

Sure it may keep running, but you just have so much more to worry about now, including repair cost.

Another very important point is that, once you are used to a ABS bike, it is outright dangerous for a "spoiled" rider to continue without this aid.

So, it's not as simple as just continue ridingwhen your ABS fails, or your TC, or in the case of some idiots, your satnav. >:D

If you're an absolute muppet then yes sure....But then you definitely SHOULD have all the rider aids you can have.  I practice without ABS regulary. Turning it off is a simple push of a button whenever I want. I can also switch it back on whenever I want. Same with TC.  Having said that, I've never once had the ABS intervene offroad on me. I purposely turn it off at the rear so I can slide it but the front is only there for a stupid brain-fade emergency, luckily I haven't had one though.

And the 790 being a big girl.....Well yes, there's always a smaller bike. You should be wanting a Honda Grom then right.....Or are we saying the PW50 is the best adventure bike around?  That's silly.  If you have the skills to do shit on a bigger bike, it comes with a lot of perks on the road and highways getting to trails etc.  Any fool can be uncomfortable.

If you can ride a big bike like the 1290 like a champ on the trails, the moment you get onto a 790, you will qualify for the Dakar  :biggrin: Thats how easy and forgiving the 790 is.

I have never owned a small bike, like a 660 Yammie or 690 KTM, I always went for the biggest and baddest. It never made sense to me, to have a small cc bike. The 790 changed that, I almost feel like I have been robbed all these years from the fun I couldve had if I had on a small cc bike.

The ONLY problem you might have with a smaller bike like the 790, will be if you like to do plenty of km a day. This is not the bike to jump on in JHB and shoot through to Bloem on tar to go see a customer quick.

But commuting between JHB and Pta everyday, you wont find a better bike.

Thsi 790 gets 5 Stars from me, and I cant see myself buying a 1290 soon again  :thumleft:

Just one question; Why can you disable ABS for dirt, if it is so good? Asking for a friend.

No bigger fool than he who is uncomfortable in technical stuff because he wants to be comfortable on the road.

Eerste keer wat ek die 790 gaan kyk het, ook self gese, oh nee vrek, die deng is kak lelik. Maar hy het begin groei op my. Hoe meer ek gekyk het, hoe beter het hy begin lyk  :biggrin: ;D
