Tenere 660 is te swaar. Ding weeg net soveel as n 990.

Wat van die Kle 300 versys?Dis seker bietjie bo jou budget,maar dit lyk na lekker ligte allrounder.

Anders sal ek rondkyk vir n XT660r.Maar jy gaan lank soek👍


XT660Z Tenere dry weight 183.     

KTM 990 dry weight 209.

KTM has more than double the power also.



Which, coupled with the extra weight, becomes a handful in some places.

Double the power unfortunately does not take extra weight away.

990's also fuel-inefficient.

that's a fact yes and another fact is the Xt660z is over weight and under powered for some
