Considering trading the Superduke whilst the trade-in price is still reasonable with the new model out.

Great bike - just a bit lardy. Bit like me.

Considering a new 890R with QS+ and track pack fitted. Hopefully the changes to it address all the issues I had with the 790.

Needed to post something.

It's a bit like CPR for the forum...

will you not miss the power?
Triumph Speed Triple RS
KTM 990 SMT

Like Komp says...Will you not miss the brutal power of the 1290?

I'm not sure I will miss the power. I test rode a 765RS which is very similar power-wise and it felt fine.

I think the lower weight and nimble handling will make up for it. Especially on the public road. The 1290 is a bit of a handful.

You can never have enough power...😊

If you have nothing else to make up for it.

Deal done.

Very impressed with my local dealer (he must love me). Minimal loss on the 1290 and he wants all the bolt on bits attached to the 1290. I save on the requirement to pay for the service the 1290 needed in April and the fact it needed a new rear tyre. Small deposit and monthly finance figure the same. Man maths!

In return he's throwing in the Akky slip-on with the 890R which retails at £860. I doubt I would have got £600 for the bits selling separately.

Just a tail tidy to fit and away we go.

I'll try.

If it disappoints - move on.

New S1000R out in '21.
