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.
