Re: Is there a future for SMT?

KTM, stop being stubborn and open your bloddy eyes. You could learn one or two things... KTM 1290 Super Motard! This bike, transformed by Jiri Heinik, has 180hp and 180kg and will race the Erzberg Rodeo 2016. How hard can it be to build a f***ng 1290 SMT and made a lot of guys happy?! https://sconte...

Re: Adv 1190 vs Adv 1190 R performance on the road

I'm going to kick this thread for a new "Black Friday" Adventure Standard. My background is that I had a 2010 SMT which I thoroughly enjoyed. I swapped it out for a 2014 Adventure R which I enjoyed but missed the turn in handling and snappiness of the SMT. I did manage a beneficial sale of that R a...

I bet the first offical DIY for the SD GT will be "How to immediately remove that ugly peace of crap rear wing" :lol: :lol:

Re: Is there a future for SMT?

Yeah, bike is awesome.
Though, it is just not my favourite style.
Actually, if you imagine it on a lime green paint, i'll bet you get a Z1000SX :D :lol:

Watched the whole 28 minutes of the EICMA KTM press conference. They talked a lot about 2016 and 2017. Not a single word on SMT...

Re: Is there a future for SMT?

Sorry to say i'm a bit (not entirely) disapointed here. Like i was predicting last months, its a sd with a screen. Nothing else. Call this one a GT is a joke. Its not a touring bike. Its not a mile eater. Those panniers and that pillion seat are another joke. Its not meant to travel. I think they we...

Re: Think there will be changes from 2015 to 2016 on the SD1290R

Gary, i would say it is some kind of problem with the your bike. Regarding CB, never heard nobody complaining about it. Regarding SMT, have done more than 40k km and never experienced nothing but amazing air dynamics and sounds. And i suspect even if those problems afected my bike also, even so i wo...

Re: First test-drive review with KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Weird. The headlight looks halogen. Did KTM just replace the H4 bulb with a LED alternative? That would be a rather inelegant solution, compared to an actual projector LED headlight, like the one on the Z1000... According to the article, the guy drove the bike we all seen, and not the final bike. I...

First test-drive review with KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Hi guys, This bike journalist was, apparently, the fisrt non-ktm staff guy to ride the bike. Basicaly, this thing is a GT as KTM thinks they all should be :D A more comfy bike with more power and more torque than the "Beast" :D Main specifications: - 24 lts tank (more 6 than 1290 sd) - Fresh new map...

Re: Think there will be changes from 2015 to 2016 on the SD1290R

For me, the one thing they MUST DO is to let go those ridiculous humongous 19th century boilers on the right side and get back to the double pipe under the seat in all SD and ADV models. Its becoming f... ridiculous. http://databikes.com/imgs/a/b/r/a/n/ktm__990_adventure_2010_5_lgw.jpg http://www.mi...

You could always do what another guy has done further down that page and put R bodywork on the standard :D
Nice JJay51!
I'll definitely give it a look.

Thanks :)

Re: Adv 1190 vs Adv 1190 R performance on the road

Thanks Dave! Great tips ;) Can i adjust on the go both front and rear damping? Yes you can, but it's important to understand that on a std. suspension you do each component individually ie front forks first then rear shock for both damping AND pre-load. You do the adjustments physically at each uni...

Re: Adv 1190 vs Adv 1190 R performance on the road

You need to go for the 1190 Adventure in my opinion. My usage is similar to yours in that I don't do real hard off-road stuff. Gravel tracks yes, muddy trails no. The 1190 Adv. comes as std. with Electronic suspension which I find very useful as you can adjust the damping and pre-load, at the touch...

Adv 1190 vs Adv 1190 R performance on the road

Hi guys. I'm thinking to buy an 1190 Adv (std or R) and need some advice to make my choice. I'm not an off-road guy and the few durt roads i do, the std adv would be just fine. My most rides usualy are 300 or 400 kms through mountain roads and i love to have fun making sporty driving on the curvy ro...

Yep.
Also legal in Portugal and Spain, at least in its major cities.
