The 640 Adventure weighed 350 pounds so why couldn't KTM build a similar bike with an extra cylinder for another 10-15 pounds. Or the same weight with a more modern design. This does not even sound like a stretch.
I would buy one and park it between my 530 EXC and the soon to be added 1190 Adventure. I originally thought the 950 ADV would replace the dirt bike and road bike, but it was just too much bike for some riding. I was so excited when I first saw the 690 Rally thinking it would make it to full production but seem that will never happen. I have spent some time on 690's but not that much on the highway plugging along. I have been told by enthusiastic and reputable sources on the other thread that the 690 is not the motor for this new bike. I really am excited about this thread and the highland motor idea.
