@2StrokeDan how many burnt out clutches can you spot from Google Earth?

Chris Northover?
Yes, he is a good reviewer.
Very passionate about bikes, stuntriding, journalist, instructor, tinkers with projects all the time, also think he did some BSB racing back in the day.

Check their review on the new 1290!
That Faf gave it proper beans!


But yes, his recent 890 review where he mostly talks is great, giving proper neutral insight

No one was stupid enough to enter a 790.


Also, watch a whole lap, and if you call this an enduro, well, let's just say this would only just make an Offroad event when I was still riding. Not even a single big mama of a log to cross?

No, the actual clutch pack, your steel and fibre plates, are different. It has to be, to be better than the 790 shit.

Yes, KTM changing the part numbers on the upgraded parts would tell unhappy customers that there was an upgrade. So they simply keep the part number the same, and drop the old stuff from the parts bin.
