    T 700 Review from Brake Magazine

    It looks like the front fender height can be adjusted a little. He makes sound likes the bike is just meh. Seems to get good wheel loft without much effort though. Comes in at about $11k US. So its just a bit more than a CRF450L. It seems like a bike alot of us would like to have. No more going through endless menus every ride to turn off TC, ABS, Off Road mode, etc. Push a button, ABS off, and now we have a 700cc semi dirt bike. https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/adventure-touring/models/tenere-700 SPECIFICATIONS: Engine Type 689cc liquid-cooled DOHC 4-stroke; 8 valves Bore x Stroke 80.0mm x 68.6mm Compression Ratio 11.5:1 Fuel Delivery Fuel Injection Transmission 6-speed; wet multiplate clutch Final Drive Chain Suspension / Front 43mm inverted fork, fully-adjustable; 8.3-in travel Suspension / Rear Single shock, adjustable preload (w/remote adjuster) and rebound damping; 7.9-in travel Brakes / Front Dual 282mm hydraulic disc; selectable ABS Brakes / Rear 245mm hydraulic disc; selectable ABS Tires / Front 90/90R21 Pirelli® Scorpion® Rally STR Tires / Rear 150/70R18 Pirelli® Scorpion® Rally STR L x W x H TBD Seat Height 34.6 in Wheelbase 62.6 in Rake (Caster Angle) TBD Trail TBD Maximum Ground Clearance 9.5 in Fuel Capacity 4.2 gal Fuel Economy** TBD Wet Weight*** TBD Warranty 1 Year (Limited Factory Warranty) Color Ceramic Ice

    KTM 1190 Frames Cracking

    My 1190 is at a KTM dealer for inspection. Gieco insurance wants to replace my frame. They think its cheaper than totaling the bike. I will update when the dealer gets done with their inspection.
  7. Hey all, If you went to High Sierra 2018, you might have heard me cranking my 1190r all day on friday trying to get it to start. Arwi and I finally got it to start with Jonathan's assistance of pure luck at 3pm. That night I kept the bike in the trailer all night and it was able to start the next morning and ride all day Saturday. I left the bike out Saturday night and sunday morning it would not start. I trailered home back to Yuma, and the 1190 started right up at home (it was 100 degrees at home). I did some google searching and so far I have come up with that there is some issue with the 2014 starter in cold weather. I do have a lithium battery too. Does anyone have any sure experience with this? Should I be looking for a 1290 starter motor and switch to an acid battery? Thanks! Jason

    KTM 1190 Frames Cracking

    Mine is the same place as the video. Inspecting the 2016 version, KTM changed a cross member on the frame. It looks to reinforce this area.

    Buying Used ADV Bikes

    I have done both. My last new bike off the showroom was a 2014 BMW F800GSA. My last purchase was private sale. Right now, I don't know if I will buy new again. My used bike came all ready setup. Even the ergos were perfect. So far the only other bike I have gotten on new that was near perfect fit for me off the showroom floor is the Africa Twin Adventure Sport. A dealer will always have some markup on the bike. A good dealer would have gone through the used bike and done a safety check, change the oil, fixed any issues before putting it out for sale. They may even give you a 30 day warranty. I look at all options!

  25. Harley says millennials are not taking to motorcycling. Could be a trend across the whole market in the USA. What do you guys think? http://www.reuters.com/article/us-harley-davidson-results-idUSKBN1A3126
