Doesn't look like it can hold 6 gallons. Might have a range of 100 miles. Make a nice hill climber or drag bike.

I would probably rip that whole exhaust can off the bike on my first baja trip.

The design (and engine size) appears as if they are marketing toward the more pavement oriented riders, direct competition with the BM's. Not a big surprise there I guess, that's what sells.

Seems like they forgot to the put the beak on the prototype.

Odd as the earlier spy pics showed a bike with a 19" front. Though there was some comments that it was the SM-T.

I was expecting the 1290 to be Super-Tenere like with a 19" front and the 1090R to be an evolution of the current design.

Yes, my thinking too. Make a R1200GS equivalent for those who ride 90% slab and 10% gravel roads.

But then what lies ahead for the 990? More of the same?

I'm already dreaming of what it would look like all farkeled up

It looks to have suspension and proper wheel sizes...some rear rally tanks, a high fender and...and....

Looks good to me assuming that dude isn't five foot nothing.

Damn - The last thing we need is the last remaining dirt orientated 'adventure bike' manufacturing making an already too heavy and powerful a bike even more heavy and powerful . . . and more road orientated. Isn't the 'adventure touring' class already saturated with 250kg road bikes with limited suspension and small knobbies.

Com'on KTM, where is the the 180kg, 250mm suspension, 30L tanked, 600 to 800cc V twin 'adventure' bike (not an adventure 'touring' bike epitomized by the 800GS) that seem to be completely missing in the current market.

Keep dreaming.

There is a 1090 Adventure R due out next year. I'm guessing same 990 with slightly more power.

My initial guess was water or oil, maybe they are toying with the idea of radiators like the S10 to make room for the heavy duty fuel tanks. Rc 8 fuel consumption figures are not great and that runs with gearing that would push 290kmh...don't think you'd want to be on that doing those speeds...however the acceleration to 240kmh on the dirt would be mind blowing!

And this is all OLD news.

Rant over....

Not sure too, frame looks different from the old pics.

Still hoping for a lighter(800?) model from KTM.
