There is a reason why KTM is one of the fastest growing motorcycle manufacturers, and its because they continue to beat out well established rivals. While the additional power output is great, it's also very refined.
Same here, I was comparing the RS version because it comes closer to d790 electronic package than the base one.hi
in uk base street triple is cheaper than base 790
To compate the 790 with an SV ia like comparing apples to pineapples!From looking at key rivals like the Kawa Z650, Yamaha FZ-07 and Suzuki SV650, it seems that this bike has a much better power to weight ratio. All of those bikes claim 70-75hp and weigh in around 400-450lbs. The Duke however makes roughly 29% more hp than any of these bikes.
SV's are a bit dated, much like my former VTR, yet, they are verrry reliable, I'll give them that, and kinda fun..To compate the 790 with an SV ia like comparing apples to pineapples!
They are bitching machines, but they are a bit ling in the tooth. I rode 2 SVs for nearly 20 years, close to 100k miles.SV's are a bit dated, much like my former VTR, yet, they are verrry reliable, I'll give them that, and kinda fun..
