What is the actual weight of my bike?

This may seem like a newbish question but I have seen reports and specs listed all over the internet ranging from 436 lbs all the way to 500+ lbs. I realize I have to account for my rack and crash bars, but throwing that aside, what is the ACTUAL weight of the ktm adventure? Wet/dry?

You can say that again, But when they are upright they are the best in the land. No 690 would do.

Those are both the same bikes, just different tanks. I sure like the Moab Pic.

Last time I put them on the scales, Trail trim - tank bags, spares, winch, AWD and about 4 gallons of fuel it was around 550. Not bad at all in my mind for what it can do.

The Alum tanks are lighter than the Aqualine tanks.

I'll pull the extras off later today when I'm in the shop and put it on the scales and try and get a "LESS GEAR" weight.

I have 2 of these and they have come in very handy over the years.

It's interesting to see how front and rear weight setup is from bike to bike when you can put the full bike on 2 scales.

Keep in mind too that the 990's with ABS have obviously added some weight to the equation. My stock 990 Dakar with about 3 gallons weighed in around 525 lbs. A 2-1 exhaust and a lighter battery should get me back close to 500. That's pretty darn close to what my old 950 weighed (without crash bars but with Gobi racks).

I've also got a Triumph Tiger 800XC loaner in my garage right (perk of my job), and it's supposedly 475-ish wet. But honestly, the KTM carries its weight so much lower and better, it's pretty noticeable. Not that the Tiger is a bad bike (I really, really like it), but just agreeing with others who have pointed out how well the big orange bike carries itself, when upright at least.

You can get a PDF copy of your owner's manual at:

http://www.ktm950.info/how/owners_ma...s_manuals.html

You can get them at the official KTM site too, but the other one is easier.
