Re: KTM 790 Duke - Review

One of the guys on the Performance Bikes forum has just traded in his MT09SP for one of these. He did a track day today and in his first session he was 5 seconds a lap quicker around Donington on the KTM than on the Yamaha.

It sounds like he really enjoyed himself on the bike.

Re: Talk me out of it....

... old bike with 1,000 miles on it that's only dragged out for a few weekends a year and not looked after in between. Owner knowledge is key.

Agreed. I had no problems shifting the RSV which was probably about 40k. Couldn't tell though as the odo kept resetting whenever the battery went flat (facepalm)

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Took the rs250 to Anglesey for a classic track day. Not done the new circuit before. I enjoyed it the group was really mixed bikes and abilities. The rs never missed a beat but it was hard work not much room for error when over taking most of the bikes as they had more power. It was ...

Re: V4 bikes ready for the WDW racing at Misano

I wonder if this means Chaz and MM have signed new deals with them for next season as the last id heard was that neither of them were being allowed to try the V4 until securing a new deal.
