New owner. KTM 640 adv.

Picking it up Tuesday.

Cann't wait.

It's on a 08 plate. Weight reduced for rallying and come with a road map and other bits and bobs for competing in a Rally.

Here's a few pics.

It's a 07 model on a 08 plate.

Thought orange crush was for all things orange.

Take it I should have posted in the beasts section?

Yes, I figured it out when I opened my eyes, I only saw one muffler at first.

That is an unusual and expensive 640 setup for the whole mc.
Wonder what the original plan was?

Edit...

That the centre I bought from alright. Was used as an instructor bike for a short time but Peter committed it as a rally raid bike and did 2 rally raids on it.

In all the bike only cover 10,000km to date.

I was out on it today but as its raining heavy here at the minute the tyres where all over the road so order to new tyre for it today.
