Next bike?

Any ideas/wants on which other bikes to add to the forum? RC8-R seems unpopular, SuperDuke is flooring it. Appreciate hearing what you guys and girls want to see.

Keep 950/990 and 1190 separate. The 950/990 is basically the same bike as the SMT and superduke but the 1190 is all together different

I'd love a "View Unread Posts That Aren't From Flash Twats With A 1290" button, but beyond that there's not much to add unless KTM bring out some new models over the winter.

You could probably kill the RC8 section (niche bike, never sold well, not seen much if any activity) and replace it with one for 1190 Adventures, but we'd hve to start dishing out pipes & slippers to everyone who validates their email address, just in case.

Seems obvious if that 1290 SMT is released that it will need a thread.
I'm not sure how much of a template the 1290 SuperDuke will provide.
The spy photos make it look like the same frame and suspension?
How much in common with the 1290 SuperAdventure?
KTM is just knocking over the pins with new bikes..... :o

Now that theres a few adventure owners here an adventure section would be good, not many people use the rc8 section so maybe rename it to the 1190 section then sub boards for rc8 and adventure :)
