Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

It looks just about right. I assume it doesn't ahve all these teething problems the 1290's have. I just fitted an IXIl IXRACE pipe, it sounds mean and looks quite cool, i can't wait till the weekend to sound it out. Did 2 track days on it so far, its amazinly fast, but forgiving and easy to ride.

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Im 6ft, and fit the bike easily, good leg room, and a nice slight lean to the wide bars, suspension is very good, soft initial travel, but firm enough for sports riding. I absolutely love my 790, out of the 18-20 odd bikes I've had, this one is probably my most fun bike. just enough power at 105, bu...

Re: Paired devices forgotten at each start

Hi everyone, just replaced my RSV4F and 1290S with a '19 GT (one bike for everything i hope) and the same problem. My dealer says KTM UK are aware of it and apparently working on a fix (coding error i guess) but i've got to say it's not convincing to bring a model to market with an error that defin...

Re: Anybody Still Riding....

Just spent a week riding with my son, i brought him an MV Rivale to ride when he's home visiting from Melbourne, we did some great roads, averaging 500kms a day. We stopped for this pic on the way home over the Central Plateau.
