    Early prototype / Mule etc...



    Now maybe an SMT would be a good halfway house between the Naked and the ADV ?

    I like the thought of a 790 SMT more but interesting

    Hmmm, not for me , and slight de-rail perhaps, although I don't see myself ever getting a 1290SDR, I could see myself on a 1290-GT at some point in the not too distant- I realise this is perhaps controversial but they are so much better looking than the naked 1290, and should be brilliant for the long trips.

    But really I just wish they'd pull their finger out and bring a 790 Duke-R out so I can buy one, I'm gonna buy a sticker kit for mine or get it painted if they don't soon

    Or maybe I should just buy a 1290 GT... ( or of course a certain almost new 1090 in a couple week time )

    Proper lol

    I think a 1290 GT should compliment the fleet rather than take place of the 790 though

    If it looks like a Supermoto I could be tempted, but if it looks like a KTM I won't be going near it.

    I think the only bike they make which doesn't look like a KTM is their MotoGP bike

    But the gaudy paintwork gives it away.
