KTM 890 Adventure

Seen the news?  Seems to me like the new 790 but not sure yet.  The first 790 was made in Austria then the second year was supposed to be made in China but then they started ramping up the 890 to be made in India which made me think perhaps they're ditching China (like so many other companies) and want it made in India.  I have no issue with that but I'd just prefer an Indian price tag to an Austrian one, lol!

Apparently it's not just a larger displacement but they've reengineered the whole thing.  105 horsepower and a friend who has a deposit on one says the weight is 464 lbs with a 5.3 gallon tank.  13% more torque.  Lighter frame, aluminum rather than steel steering stem too. Nice!

The catch?  Only 700 will be made and chances are they're already sold out.  But you may not need to wait until next May... word is you may seem them in dealers this Nov!
