Just have to decide what colours.

As Jarse said "Do it"

A very good question, for me it's more about how much fun the bike is to ride, hence going from a 1000cc sportsbike to a 675 Street Triple 7 years ago. Sufficient power to give good on road performance while having the abiltiy to wring it's neck without stupidly breaking the speed limit. Still a Street Triple now (765RS) and it does everything I need. Very rarely think I need more power.

You can have fun on a 60hp bike or a 160hp bike, a lot depends on the roads you are riding.

So what are you going to by then Grumpy  ;)

i was planning on taking it further, and may still, but after i calmed down a bit, thought to myself, am i likely to be riding it at the moment? probably not. so is it worth creating a lot of drama just out of principle?

Whether you are going to ride it or not create the drama just to make a Point - I would

my bike is due to be collected for gearbox rebuild/replacement as it has chewed itself to bits!
common problem apparently!



isn't this a Speed RS not a Street RS issue?

Not with the exhaust down there it isn't. You should know that!!!

It might be down there next year though.

Oh I do it would appear Komp didn't ;)

Quote from: Dom1 on September 11, 2020, 07:35:40 amWith all the Rally kit, yes.

I watch racestoplaces on YouTube and Basil bike is based on a KtM690.

That said the cost of changing a 690 and the maintenance intervals puts me off.

I reckon the T7 is the closest to a Dakar rally bike straight out of the box without being as highly strung.

you've just answered your question haven't you LOL get the T7
