Re: What about the new 790s?

The board seems a little bit dead after the tow month outage. The new 790s look simply amazing and are getting very good reviews. I would seriously consider trading in my SMT for one if there wasn't a quote by Stefan Pierer - the bloke who owns KTM - that they're working on a new SMT based on a 890 ...

Re: Back in Black

I kind of prefer gloss black myself. Would have loved to have gotten a 2013 bike, but those are a rare and elusive animal.

Re: Back in Black

Thank you. Everything on that bike is stock, so there's a lot of room for improvements. I'm coming from a 2009 Versys 650 with a very snatchy throttle and a clutch pull that only Arnie the Terminator could use, so I think I'll be ok initially with the snatchy throttle on the SMT.
