790 Adventure looks and sounds great. Lighter weight should be useful.

Hope they do a 790R roadbike though. That would be the dog's danglie bits.

The stock 790 is about 105 bhp. The 1090 Adventure is 125bhp so I reckon the 790 Adventure would be about 100bhp would be spot on as that puts into the Tracer/Tiger800/GS800 range.

The 1090 Adventure is on offer at the moment for £9,999, almost £1600 off. If the 790 is around the £8k mark it should sell well.

I've just posted on the Tankslap Facebook page some updated details and photos. I'll transfer them over tonight when I'm at home.

It looks purposeful and sounds like it's high spec .

That's a nice looking bike. Single swingarm on a bike with panniers never looks quite right though.

could seriously be tempted by something like this so I could get my off road kicks.....
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...
