That’s a very good point, even on the V Strom is end up sitting around 100 with not much thought. I also felt a bit detached from the riding experience, sitting behind a massive screen. I don’t need the capability of the bigger adv style bike I just like how they do it all well.
My minds pretty much made up, I just need to find a decent used one to lessen the blow if I change my mind and sell it again
there are a few around used and some very good deals.

it really depends upto what options if any you want

I swapped to naked bikes a few years ago to encourage me to keep the speeds down.

but if your all year round riding I can see why a screen might be helpful

Well I’ve just replaced my, problem free but just too bloody fast for road use, 1290 SDR (2017) with a 600 mile old 790 Duke.
Absolutely no regrets. I know I’ve only had it for 10 days but the buzz of riding a bike you can redline on the road is way better in my opinion of a pub bragging monster BHP figure bike wins for me.
It’s unbelievably light, suspension seems fine, engine is a peach and buying used for £7K I feel I’ve made the right choice.
First photo upload. Don’t know why it’s rotated 90degrees:sad:
I am pleased we have another 790 fan
as i have said in many ways the 790 is more fun than the 1290SDR
I own both
