Stick or twist ?

Pretty certain my 790 is a write off 15-20 mph collision and a damaged frame along with all the associated front end stuff.
Iím looking to get another 790 when the insurance is sorted but my question is-
Would you get another if you had to choose or try another brand, wished you hadnít changed the bike you had before the 790?

I'd honestly be torn at the moment. All KTMs though.

790, love it, it's excellent
690 Duke (17-18), it was just superb, can't say enough great words about it.
1090 Adv, arguably suits my riding better than the others in many ways, grunt fun twin... Love it...

So it would without doubt be orange, but depends how i feel on the day as to which specifically i'd go for.

I'd definitely get another 790, this thing turns better than any bike I've ever ridden except the 300XC motard.

Or you try the other flavour 790, an Adventure ? Fun with a big dose of practicality ?
More £ís though.
