Not Bike, motorcycle division.

So I am ready to buy a Husqvarna 701 Enduro (awesome bike with modified KTM 690 engine), and KTM announces the 2019 Adventure R (799 twin with electronic features I didn’t know existed). My nearest KTM dealer is 90 miles away and says KTM has not announced a price or when they will be available in the US. I want a 2019 because they plan to produce the 2020 and later models in China? And what’s with the warranty? 2-years, but only engine, frame, and swing arm.

KTM, Stop teasing US. I’m done venting and going to ride my Suzuki.

Price finally released: KTM 790R (it does have an awesome motor instead of pedals) MSRP $13,499 U.S. Still upset that I have to wait until Spring or Summer to get one.

KTM Maroon Sonic hardtail MTB list for $8,900. Who the hell pays that much for a bicycle?

When I put a deposit down for a KTM 790R several months ago, the dealer said it would be here in April. Well, half way through April and still no word on when it will arrive. Already bought my orange helmet and Bluetooth with great FM stereo and perfect phone calls at 70mph, but looks stupid wearing it on my blue DRZ400.

And what’s up with the warranty? Europeans get 2 years and Americans only get 1.

April already gone and not a single US dealer has a KTM 790R for sale. Maybe May?

It in now June, and my dealer still hasn’t received a single KTM 790R. Good news is that some US dealers just got them, but no LED blinkers. The DOT made KTM put big blinkers with old fashion bulbs, just plain stupid and maybe one of the reasons the bikes are late to the US.

Finally got the beast, thanks KTM for making the perfect motorcycle (for me at least).

I’m not mad anymore, but many guys are still waiting for theirs.

So the 790 Adventure was only produced for 2 years, now 2021 Adventure is an 890 with improved clutch, gears, and brakes. I’m still happy with my 790R after 15k miles, but the 890R Rally looks awesome.

Hey KTM, the bike didn’t need more power; less weight would be better!
