Can I start by saying , the editors review is based on a 1989 Ten,, pretty pointless really.
I bought mine new from wigan Yam, who delivered it (with Yam Panniers) and picked up my KTM 640 supermoto, Great service, I stay near Edinburgh so they did well.
I thought aboput a beemer before buying this, but the money, and the weight made me buy the Ten, and I love it, Two up touring the Hebrideas, camping off the bike for a week was superb and once I got the hang of the hight of the bugger it coped brilliantly.
Mines has been totally reliable,, no issues at all. Fuel economy is superb, handling is excellent, off road as well, copes great on the trails round my way.
I have been messing about a wee bit, fitted big ebay pegs (superb), Garmin, on a ram mount wired tothe aux outlet in the dash. XT660.com is the place to go for all advice and bits and bobs etc. Will sort out the exhaust (very heavy and restrictive) and do a fuel mod, once the 2 yrs are up.

All in all,, brilliant, would reccomend one any day.
