Really good promotional claims are rare. One of my All Time Favorites is Sony’s "This is for the players": A claim that clears the target group so that he applies the product with it. Ktms "Ready to Race" By contrast, I have always been too spongy. You can (the will) everything racen, which moves, for example buroes. The new 790 Duke is naturally again in the brochure. But it could also "For the riders" Stand on, because the new Roadster was designed so consistently on the driver in the cost prere that it could damage the sales figures at the end.
KTMS Motorrader cost since I know something more. That barely fell when even her single cylinders were only sold in the premium area: a Duke 3 already cost 9,000 euros in 2008 – a lot of money for an idiosyncratic single cylinder. But it fell up when the Duke 4 of the mass market was piled up. To achieve your price targets (after all, to 7500 euros you came down), a few Rabiate Cuts had to be made. At the same time, the chassis was too soft in silence and trampy-hard during response, and the brake on the consciously gently elected series of series of series has been heading on some racetracks.
Now KTM again had the task of saving money, so that the 790 Duke, which is to operate between single cylinders and superduke the Roadster segment, also sold. But this time you have stated it so that you can be satisfied in the saddle. In front of the screen, however, it looks a bit difficult: Maxxis tour sports tires, brakes from J.Juan (I could do well: "Noname" Writing because the manufacturer hardly knows anyone), non-adjustable chassis. Hm. "Is this serious?", The fans who had to be armed from crunchy prototypes.
Businessman is difficult to understand the decision. At the price of highly lower KTM RC 390, KTM for the European batches has mounted extra expensive Metzeler sports tires instead of the Indian original rubbers, because "We need NED differently". At the most important motorcycle of recent years, the opposite happens. All driven journalists were skeptical, some even anxiously to throw the drove on the small racetrack in the gravel, with ass bomb in the Merkelego concrete limiter. But the Taiwan tires convinced all day long with so many positive characteristics that I have to call him the big positive surprise on the motorcycle.
