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
2006 1Euro = R8.53 today = x2.1 1Euro = R17.90
R116k x2.1 = R243 600. The price of an 890R a vastly superior bike. Ask our favourite Dentist who broke a rib on that old fossil of a bike, while his 890 has never even been dropped.

Hell I took long now to figure out how he has a second thumb there!

Nice cockpit, the copper fuel cap is nice, general black theme with black bar also nice.

what is that little black dial just below left of speedo? Headlight adjust? should be finicky so far away from lights.

Looks like the headlight adjuster from the 1290 so probably.

Hey all,

personally I'm super excited to swing a leg over on this machine, which happens to be this coming Monday (8th Nov)as I've been asked by Husqvarna SA to assist with the launch and promotion of this bike.
I hope to come back with first impressions and feedback as well as some more photos to drool over.

(side note, I know I haven't been the most active member of this forum at all but hope to make amends in the coming weeks, and my big brother (Justbendit) has reminded me to tell everyone that I am the little brother)

Myne Sat bestel, eks no 2 op die lys by AC. Behoort Jan 2022 te land. Wag nog vir die invoice, net so by die R300 000 verwag hulle met adv kit.
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.

My 2008 990 S was R124500
