I've been thinking about this all weekend.

I am bummed it doesnt have the full bored suspension like the 890R.  If you're paying the amount of money that this thing is gonna cost, you kinda want the full strength, real makoya....not coke lite.

Having said that, personally I loved the 790/890 but always felt the suspension was just too hard for riding chilled.  If you were BELTING the thing then it felt great, but just cruising it felt really harsh......So maybe the Apex 43mm suspension would actually be better for somebody like me, who is more of a chilled rider.
Exactly how I feel; I have no "Dakar experience" expectations
(Un)Fortunately I am not in the market for a new bike, cause choosing between the Norden and MGV85 would be impossible for me

I like it not a bad looking bike either, the lower sear height will suit a lot more riders as well.

What base price did they quote you if you don't mind me asking? Info I received was that it would be priced between the 890 S and R, but not sure if Bidvest (seeing as they are marketed through Yamaha agents in my area) are involved in Husky pricing?

Not sure yet, they said around R270 000 for the base model.

Saw a clip of Lyndon giving it stick and looked good!


But, I am also not that positive. I know the 890R is offroad focused, so I compare this to the Tiger 900 rather and cant see one thing it does better.

Likely it falls over better.

Launch is later this month. I think this is the actual upgrade on the 990 everyone was waiting for. :peepwall:

Also think this bike will be closer to the 990 than the 890. More for touring and a pillion now and then.

I was never a 990 fan.

I have one now

And think this is blasphemy comments




(I also think 990 and touring / pillion shouldnt be in same sentence)

In 2006 a KTM 990 Adventure S cost R116 000 brand new.......................and people thought that the price is CRAZY expensive  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

With my high school accounting at 5.5% inflation per year brings us to R273k for the 990 in 2022.
So guessing not to bad for the Norden, even though they did not cheap out on the 990 suspension
