Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Indeed. An amazing thing is happening right in front of our eyes. The unpopular in the west Bajaj got a KTM sticker, and everyone wants one. :snorting:

Praat jy nou twak of nie? ???
Hoekom sal KTM 'n nuwe kleiner adventure bike net na die KTM 790 launch met 'n Bajaj engine daarin?
Waar is die source wat dit bevestig asb?

I want a commuter (20km per day) and weekend explorer so stayed away from 500 exc.  Possibly best to wait for Husky new 500 bikes.

Doen n bietjie navorsing op die internet, dalk stel jy liewer belang in die BAIE goedkoper Bajaj Dominar wat ook die 390 enjin gebruik.

As n man wakker is kan jy geld spaar.

The adventure has different specs though doesn't it, and the 1 non-indian review I have found was quite good?

Yes, the 390 Adventure is based on that 390 Duke platform, they share the same engine and braking systems etc.

The adventure has a larger capacity fuel tank, higher ground clearance and seat height as well as longer-travel suspension and 19 and 17 inch wheels as well as more advanced electronics.

Thanks.  That concurs with what I have read.  Doesn't help me decide though.  Although I suppose I have some time for that  :)

Looks like it might be a cracker bike.

I would like to ride the Versys 300 and the 390 Adventure back to back. I like the idea of a small twin, although this single appears not to be aware that it is in fact a single and behaves like a twin according to reports I've seen.

I was considering a scooter recently. Maybe something like this with a top box is a better option. Same value, same weight, better for potholes, pavements, traffic, performance... And I dont think KTM would put their name on it if it wasn't proper.

Danie help my gou uit hier asb. :biggrin:
SÍ jy die Bajaj Dominar kan moontlik net so goeie opsie wees soos die KTM390 Adventure wees maar net baie goedkoper of sÍ jy Bajaj vervaardig dieselfde enjin vir KTM wat hulle in hulle Dominar gebruik? ???
Ek weet die KTM Duke 390 en die nuwe KTM Adventure 390 het dieselfde engine maar het Bajaj op enige stadium vir KTM hierdie engine of engines vervaardig?
Laastens as hulle twee verskillende fietse is dan wil ek weet of die Bajaj net so goed as KTM is?
Word Bajaj Dominar hier in SA verkoop en deur wie? :thumleft:
