ktm know enough about the 690 now to elimiate its few reliability issues. Everything is there already to produce a modern lightweight, high tech, quality, purpose built adv bike with 80's honda like dependability and ease of maintainance. That bike, if it ever gets built, could stand the adv market on its head....the frustrating thing is ktm are soooo close to it with the 690e/r but they pulled the cutain before the final act

2014 is the year for the little Adventure?

I just read this interview on the official KTM blog:

http://blog.ktm.com/looking-into-rea...ead-of-ktm-rd/

INTERVIEW OF THE MONTH: RE(AR)VIEW WITH PHILIPP HABSBURG, HEAD OF KTM R&D

"There are still some ‘missing links’ that we want to fill up for next year."

“The travel bike segment – where we have the ADVENTURE – and the naked bike – where we have the DUKES – are the growing segments for the future.”

Thanks for the links, very cool.

As a former 690 enduro owner and possible future 1190 adv R owner, or possible future Tiger 800 XC owner, I think a 790 KTM twin competing directly with the Tiger / F800GS, with dirt creds, touring comfort, and comparable maint schedule with those two bikes would be perfect. Add good panniers and 990-ish fairing/comfy seat and I'd be sold. But, if I have to step up to the 1190 adv r, I guess I could..

I have seen this bike in the flesh and it is an absolute work of art.
Superbly made. The only issue for me is the cost. At 24k (aust) I just can't afford it, but if KTM could produce a version for 16-18 k, I will be the first to order one.



Oh and for the life of me I can't understand everyone wanting a twin.

Was told these kits/bikes will be in the usa mid 2014 for people to look at in the flesh and throw a leg over.

I'm assuming you mean the Dalby Moto kits which are based on the 690 single.
Yes that have already sold bikes into the USA and also Europe.


The quote you posted alluded to a 700 KTM twin????
