This bike makes me smile everytime I ride it. It has covered 17,500 mile is used in all weather all year and I am still smiling. build quality is superb, reliability 100%, On road handling and agility superb, brakes take a little getting used too and could be a touch stronger but very good anyway, off road it is big but still agile and managable, comfort is excellent with gel seat fitted, engine is torquey, powerful and superb, economy good. Can I praise it anymore - not really it is an excellent all rounder I have no doubts about any aspect of the bike and would happily ride it anywhere anytime, The best all round bike I have owned in the last 28yrs of riding it beats them all as an everything bike.Upgraded pipes and re-jetting improve things in the engine department but its hard to improve anything else on the bike.KTM Heppco adventure luggage is excellent if a little limited on room. Strengths: Road presence, forgiving handling, superb engine, build quality, usability and reliability.
Weaknesses: Original seat, complicated oil changes, access to engine for servicing or repairs (if it ever needs repaired that is).
