Take it on the dirt, it might get stuff on it !!!!!!!!

Seriously though I hope to get some red dirt on her over easter, still getting used to the weight so might build some confidence on some formed roads first.

I got the black seat when I bought it, have the original also. I definately prefer the black. I'm 186cm (6ft+) and it lets me stand flat footed so thats cool.

I think the saying should go....

"THE ORANGE ONES ARE FASTER..."
"THE BLACK ONES ARE BAD ASS..."
"BUT THE BLUE ONES ARE THE BADDEST, FASTEST CHICK MAGNETS AROUND!"

David,

Any chance you might return one of my many calls or e mails regarding the title?

Besides.. the blue bikes are the fastestestttt bikes ever!

I haven't seen this mentioned among the changes, but I'd swear that the front fender is different. It looks higher off the tire to me. Can anyone confirm this? If so, it might be just the ticket for those of us who want to keep the low fender, but still worry about mud and such.

Anyone? ...Bueller???

Yep, KTM mentioned the higher front mudguard in some of the 990 promo material. 2 brake lines instead fo the crossover line in the mudguard IIRC.

Quack quack!

Having seen the new mud guard in the flesh I was not that impressed.

It looks like a Duck's Beak from the top and too far off the tyre! (OK! TIRE!)

As others have said, the front fender is off the tyre a bit more than the 950 and the brake lines are also routed differently. Hope the picture makes some sort of sense.
Cheers

I wonder if the new line mounting might be more adaptable to the 950 instead of using two left-side lines to do the high-fender convert.
