I'm officially obsessed with the R.  I can't wait to put hands and feet and butt on one of these things.

Ooh, that's very competitive. That will work for a lot of folks.

There should be some advantage to building them in China.

Looks like the new 790 Adv had a big weekend.  Waiting for more english speaking reviews from this event.

Go to 41:33.  I assume this is KTM footage of Chris Birch but still.  For a stock bike...
