Just to really throw a cat among the pigeons, have you seen the KTM 1290R that's in pre-production testing?



OH_MY_GOD.

150 HP.


Oh Lordy Lord.....there's the making of a 3000 page tyre thread right there.


I've booked 2-up test rides with my Wife on R1200GS-A, and I'll be doing another KTM990R run 2-up. Preferably within a day or two of each other.

My salesman friend did mention the new F series in passing..."Oh, there's a new demo F800 and F700 coming in a couple of weeks...but you probably wont want to know about them...nothing much has changed".
The 990r looks like a sweet bike, a little tall for a noob like myself I think, but nice. It reminds me of the husqvarna Nuda 900r? Also, considering the lack of change in the 700/800 its not always a bad sign, but maybe just that they see no changes to make...take the baseball for example, not much change since late 1800s.
