Yes, it's my first KTM. Previously I owned a Yamaha XJ6, quad dirt bike Suzuki LT-Z400 and a Honda 125cc.

So far just installed the crash pads of PUIG.

Soon, I will post my moods and some pictures.

Welcome and Hi and I hope you you can get some inspirations from this forum, my 790 is an ongoing project at the moment but will be finished soon.
P.S. nice post on the Ixil it looks big bore but there are loads of restrictions in there to create back pressure.

Thanks :wink:

Honestly I’m happy with the bike as is from factory! They did a great design job in my opinion. At this point I’m just in love with her, in the first night I checked her out 3 time in the garage, just to have sure she alright :grin:

I will change a few things in the future like:
- Exhaust
- Mirrors
- My Ride from KTM
- License Plate tail to a smaller one

Eventually it might be Honda showing KTM the way since the new Honda Goldwing got automotive style connectivity before KTM kicked off their program.
Honda also has the means to dominate that are of motorcycles due to their automotive involvement.

They just need to hurry up and implement apple car play and android auto like the rest of the automotive industry.

they probably are not prepared to pay the upfront cost and royalty payments
Realistically though how much are we talking here, apple and google must want their products in more places, surely the licensing for the manufactures can't be that ridiculous.

I could be wrong though... otherwise turn it in the bmw subscription based model, at least they would keep income flowing.

I think it's more likely just pig headedness from the execs thinking they can do it better, but not even coming close.

I doubt the R&D spent on those systems they've developed has come to much less than the licensing would, plus those are ongoing costs for one off reward payments.

a quick google doesn't reveal much, but as most people say the cost is passed onto the consumer anyway, if you want it pay for it....

Sunday Ride!

Hi Guys,

As promised let my share my KTM with you.

I'm lucky to live in a city with plenty of sunshine and the winter isn't bad at all, so this Sunday I took my KTM to catch fresh air :cool:


At the moment I just installed the crash pads from PUIG, they actually look very good.
