Bike service and front brake master cylinder install completed by a KTM certified shop. Fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock and Ohlins NIX 30 fork cartridge kit installed by Fast Bike Industries.

Other add on are KTM OEM led turn signals, tidy tail and bar end mirrors. Comes the OEM take off parts and the items that came from the dealer when I purchased it.

Wow really nice bike with all the upgrades.

Gotta ask why you would be selling it cuz it is just broke in and all dialed in?

Thanks! The suspension and handling are awesome on this bike without a doubt. Had a SD 1290 R before this bike and all my previous bikes were 1200cc or larger. I am wanting something with a little more zip than the 790. Hopefully can find a bike with similar handling but a good bit more power. And don't get me wrong the 790 is not a slouch by any means.

Would the 890 fit the bill?

I heard it is a torque monster.

It might. The torque of a v twin has always fit my riding style. I keep hearing conflicting comparisons. Some say the 890 is a night and day difference from the 790 and others are saying it is slightly better power wise. Would love to test ride one but the 890 is a unicorn around here. The 1290 is bonkers when it comes to the motor but no way handles as nice as the 790 in the twisty corners. So I am defiantly looking at the 890.

I read that too. The last report I read the guy was saying that it was way easier to loft the front wheel in the first 3 gears on his 890 compared to his 790. That statement says a lot about the power delivery.

Good luck on your quest.
