    Fantastic!

    Excellent size engine for many of us who don't want or need a huge and heavy ADV bike for exploring

    I've seen that they are coming, they are not coming, they are coming, they are not coming. I will believe it when I see it and then it will probably be the first and only bike I would buy brand new.

    I have to say I'm with Doogster on this one. I'll get exited when the official KTM web site announces a new 390 Adventure.

    That sounds like a promising bike if it were to pan out. A bike I'd likely be interested in down the road as a possible replacement for the TWand Victory if I ever decide to gi to a single bike garage. I have ridden Hondas CRF250L and Yamahas WR250R. And found both to be very good bikes and would consider either for a "can only have one bike garage". But having a bit more displacement with a bit more comfort and wind protection without adding too much weight sounds even sweeter.

    But alas as it is I happy with my two bike stable.

    Motorcycles are like dogs Tinybear. They do much better if there is more than one.

    From the looks of it this article was from August. Just before that is when it was rumored that they were shipping a few to India for testing and development wasnt it? So I think that article is a rehash of old news.

    From what I've read, the KTM is a needy bike. Its roots are in motocross and racing - and reliability and ability to run without service, those are not the selling points.

    I don't know how, in the same basic part of the world, the same culture of mechanical excellence, you could have BMW's history of trouble-free cycling, and KTM's constant failures and servicing needs...all within a few hundred kilometers of each other.

    This is true but it's also true that much like dogs the cost of one is far less than multiple. Witch in turn leaves more funds for trips, travel, and exploration.

    That being said having tried quite a few bikes there is no perfect single machine for me YET. So for me two bikes is a needed evil. And since I have the two it would be very difficult to go back to a single bikE (I really love my Victory and my TW).
