I won't be able to tell you anything much different about the KTM than the other posters; it's a great bike that, in my opinion, is the best value of anything close to it.

Also, I have had experience with Triumph products. The Tiger 1050 just was not comfortable to me and after having ridden the 800 before making the decision on my 990, the seating position seemed similar. So, not choosing the Triumph was easy for me just for that reason alone. I won't bore you with the litany of other aspects of the KTM that far outweigh the Triumph products. Good luck! I'm sure you will enjoy whichever bike you choose!

I admit I was doing some fence sitting, but after reading about all the enthusiasm surrounding these bikes I have "missile lock" on a 990 R. Thanks to everyone for there input this is a great community.
