I've been following this closely on the net.

I have to say, it looks absolutely awesome. Looking forward to a release, and also to see the new 790 LC8c in the hands of Duke owners for some real life reviews.

There's a lot of opinions and speculation out there, it's hard to separate fact from fiction at this point. One thing is for sure though, that KTM continues to push the envelope. This bike looks to be absolutely on point as far as I'm concerned. Having had the pleasure of riding an 1190R on a street demo, and a 1090R off road, if this is the lighter, more off road capable version, I'm in, in, in. I can hardly wait to give it a go...

(It's Geoff, btw :D )

Too heavy for me as they are claiming 440lbs, I'd like to see a 590 please! I may have to try one for a test drive, but still loving my XR650R.

Something around sub 300 lbs dry, ability to fit a large tank at a good price, 6 speed, and infrequent oil changes is what the market is missing in a modern bike. But no one is listening :crybaby:
'18 300 XC
'15 450 XC-F (For Sale)
'02 XR650R
