Get the 990!

In my experience, the problems with the 990 arise when it is used as a 1000cc bush basher, and/or home maintenance is done. My 2010 990 is a wonderful machine, and after owning a BMW, I wouldn't go...

Day to Day riding

Having owned both but now have only the KTM 990 Adventure, my opinion ois that the BMW will be more economical and more comfy than the KTM. You do a good mileage per day so comfort will be important....
