Hi everybody !

Have someone already tried to change bar position on the 890 Duke R ? Today for the 1000km revision, my dealer advised me to move the bar in the forward position as i am tall (1m86).
I just ride few km on relatively straight road but my feeling is :

I feel more like on a sportbike, position is better for getting in the good position in high speed curve, but I feel that I am doing more parasitic actions and at the end I feel less stable. It look like the bike is less « easy » but « sharper ».

I will keep it for a few in order to get used with this. But it could be interesting to discuss about it.

KTM advise to put it in front position for track use in the owner manual.

You feel less "stable" perhaps because it's more sensitive to your input. I leave mine in the forward position, as do others. You'll get used to it. :)
