And for shits and giggles
KTM 1190adv R claimed weight without fuel = 478lb

but those middle weights are so much lighter. It's a shame KTM never made a bike that competed with the middle weight bikes.
So you are saying that BMW doesn't know how to build light performance dual sports? What a surprise...

The 690 is 90 lbs lighter than the 2012 Sertao that has less displacement, why should KTM not be able to do the same with a twin?
