This means that the bikes are already here in the States waiting for release to dealers.Here's a press release from KTM:
No official price information yet.
I know you must struggle for volunteers for these things but let me assure you I've got your back... I've owned both the RS and now a 790, plus previous to those I had an FZ/MT-09 - I was BORN for this Evans!Although I wouldn’t have attended, so as to avoid any accusations of bias because of my well-documented love of the 790 Duke, the 890 introduction was rumored to have been planned for COTA. What a missed opportunity. As soon as we can get our hands on a Street Tripe RS and an 890 Duke R, MO is having a rip-snorting shootout.
You’re a giver, I can tell. It’s a noble deed to be willing to sacrifice so much.I know you must struggle for volunteers for these things but let me assure you I've got your back... I've owned both the RS and now a 790, plus previous to those I had an FZ/MT-09 - I was BORN for this Evans!
Post-Covid when you have these two middleweight troublemakers tee'd up I'd be glad to assist with the test riding, track comparo's, etc... you know, all the mundane minutia.
If we don't help each other, what separates us from the savages?????
Its relatively a bargain if in 12000-13000 usd they are offering qs and track mode, and all the tax is included as well.Quickshifter+ and "Track" mode are additional extras, slightly misleading with their base price. Still a bargain though!
Interesting, as you would think the R would come with these items as standard (even if it cost a little bit more), and optional on the 790.
Regardless, glad I have them!
