I've ridden a 2010 990R and it is snappy and it spins up very very fast.

The difference between the 08/09 990R and the 2010 one was noticeable.
And in my opinion (compared to my 1200) my money would go with the 990R.

The only variable obviously if you can apply all the power to the 990's rear wheel while keeping the front down.

 
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

2010 GS - power: 81 KW, 110 HP, 120 NM torque dry weight: 205 KG

2010 KTM990 adventure: 78 KW, 104.5 HP; 100Nm torque, dry weight: 209 KG

you do the math... maybe i'm missing something like speed of reving etc?

then again, i wouldn't argue too much with the bob-nob  ;)

its all pointless cause you can resprocket the ktm to do back flips on pullaway and you can resprocket it to have lots more top end

so out of the box the ktm win

with very cheap mods the ktm will win by even bigger margins

ie. ktm no matter how you look at it - you thing you cant fix on the ktm is the fuel consumption - that you are stuck with  ;D

Do NOT forget the weight of the rider.

130kg vs 80kg.

You can put the 80kg rider on any bike and he will win.

I've tried it with Jaco's HP2 and my 950 Adv. On tar was him by half a bike length. 
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

Some time back myself and Beemer Man dragged off a robot, both our bikes have aftermarket zorsts and airfilters, and are more or less the same year model, we both had similar luggage weight and there is not much between us in body weight difference, I have done drag racing before, he hasn't, but the end result is I was quicker. Not by far though, probably 3-4 bike lengths by the next robot.
I still had standard sprocketing, 17T front as opposed to the now 16T standard sprocket, which would have made my bike even quicker off the mark.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

I think its a close call.

Depends alot on the type of tires and the road surface also the rider.

Its all about who can put the power down because the overall go power is much the same.
I used to be called Captain Slow but then i got Zef
