Adventure 390 unveiled-EICMA 2019

Wonder if the fully adjustable front forks and back spring fit my 2017 Duke.

That front end just like weird. The headlight is too high.

2017 Duke 390

Only a motorcycle rider can understand why a dog sticks his head out of the window.

Not saying Iím going to buy the whole bike - as I agree with you. But maybe someone crashes his bike - without being hurt - and I could snatch the back spring and the forks... just saying...

Anyhow... ready for another bike anyhow. The new 890 Duke looks extremely tempting...

Only 16kg more than the 390, but 121hp (vs43) and 99Nm (vs32 at 7k) at 7.750rpm. Bloody ****.

Batshit crazy - I want it.

Any lower mounting, and you might as well call it a Duke 390.

This isnít my first rodeo, but it is the first one with real clowns...

The 890 looks like the smarter choice

Well, I don't disagree with that, but that doesn't make it not look weird. As it is, it looks like someone mounted the headlight the wrong way while they were assembling a 390.

They have longer travel so would probably cause issues. You can get adjustable rear shocks already for the 390 which will probably cost less than the ones new from KTM. I think there are some cartridge kits from the fronts too.

I really like the adventure, it depends on price though.
