I think KTM have had a few assembly issues - or rather some quality control failures to be honest.Hi guys so tempted to buy but have heard few problems with oil leaks coolant etc probably just normal moaning .are most bikes ok everyone happy etc many thanks
Welcome to the forum Cornish!Cheers dma yep that's what I thought every review has bad points thanks for the info , The trouble is just been looking at the 890r now 😩😩😩😩 ffs lol, some really good deals on the 790r just need to decide 😁
And both of those figures are full MSRP not discounts on either?Hi Younglion I can get a new 2019 790 for £6995 the new 2020 890r is £10400 think available from march could be wrong
Agreed - I guess $4000 CDN over the $11,999 MSRP for the 790 so $15,999 - smack dab in the middle of the 790 and 1290SD which is now $20k I think for '20.Welcome Cornish!
I’m guessing your 790D price is discounted from retail?
My thinking is the 890R will be 3-$3500 over 790D pricing.
Best bike I've ever ridden especially for commuting to work and canyon riding. PERIOD.Hi guys so tempted to buy but have heard few problems with oil leaks coolant etc probably just normal moaning .are most bikes ok everyone happy etc many thanks
Wise woman you have there. :wink:Last night, while I was eating dinner with my wife, I told her that it was so much fun riding the bike. I then made the stupid mistake of telling her that I was curious about "trying" all of the electronic riding aids like lean angle ABS and traction control. Being an off-road rider herself, she looked at me with an annoyance face and proceeded to tell me how dumb I was to even think about trying it because the riding aids are meant to save my ass and not to "try it" out. After that, I just went back to eating my dinner quietly.:surprise:
... *grin* they are small if you compare them to Honda ;-)Smallish? - They are way up there with the big players - We (I am guilty too) think of them as small or new players - but they are not.

This ^ , make sure you find a decent dealer, the dealer I originally got mine from spent 3 months troubleshooting a coolant leak that another place solved in about 30mins.If you are going to buy it new, why worry? You have two years warranty.
