Bliksem  :drif: :drif:

Daai suspension lyk mal goed. Maak nie daai "kadwaaaa" klank as hy oor 'n jump land soos sekere ander bikes wat onlangs extreme videos uit het nie  :pot:

On the T7 video the "kadwaa' was simply left in, as it's a real world biking sound. But only when you ride hard enough.

KTM edited out their "kadwaa", and they also did not show the broken linkage. :biggrin:

sounds like the 890 adventure is imminent, may that be why release of the Norden is also now sooner than what was first thought?
Typical KTM just when your 790 is farkled and all the gremlins sorted out the 890 appears on the horizon ...  :peepwall:

But it also means we might get a 790, 901 and a 890 in less time than it took the T7 to get here

In fact, since EICMA 2016, KTM has lauched more new models than yamaha have since like the 50s    :pot:

Exactly why KTM has so many issues. 8). An over-eagerness to sell under-developed bikes to victims of circumstances.

So now you are not only a boffin on motorbikes and all biking relating matters, but also a videographer with experience in video editing. Impressive CV uncle Dan.
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.

I see that Husky/Kiska have released a couple of 'teaser' design concept videos in the last few days....hopefully an announcement in the pipeline soon. Truth be told its not going to be everything the concept bike promised (Apex suspension for a start). Still keen to see it, though may hold out for the 890 with updated bodywork.

Yeah I was hoping the “R” model would have WP PRO suspension like the prototype…..

From what I have heard from a pretty good source is that the Norden is going be more road orientated than what we, well I at least, would like to see.. it is not going to have a rugged off road suspension, it will be more of a general tourer than a trail killer. Not what I had hoped for, but I am hoping it will be the precursor of more “adventurous” models to follow. I guess they are aiming for the majority of the market who own these type of bikes and rarely see a dirt road…in a nutshell is will be more like the S models in KTM range and not the R versions…

Would be a pity….
The concept portrayed a different vision for the bike.

I like the look of this bike bike veryyyy much because it is the 1st bike after the 990KTM that again looks like a proper Adventure baaik. But yeah if they are only going to offer a softroader option then it will be veryyy sad. But seems there might be some hope after all . . .

calling it the 1200GS of the Husky world, and then the Iceland prome video with 2 riders, one beeing a Saffer...

the irony flows strong


1200GS Rallye did it first, and I think actually did more fancy riding
