I'm not sure what it's worth but I'd suggest having a good go on a 701 before commiting.

I've had a 690 and I'm on a 990 now..... Oh.... I wonder if the 990 is actually a better all rounder. Although I suppose the husky has better suspension and a less vibey motor which were two bugbears of mine on the 690.

I find the 990 cossetts my crap riding whereas the 690 (shit 701 comparison) was more of a fighter, still a nice bike mind.

Im rambling, just enjoying a bit of quiet time in front of the fire exercising my forefinger!

Good luck selling her. I know of a chap looking for one so I'll direct t him here...

Go 790R.
Lighter than 990, faster, good suspension, great offroad, better fuel economy, more comfy and better on faster roads than 701/690.
790R feels same weight as 701/690 when pushing around

701/690: yes lighter than 790R, but a 500exc/501 will do the same work and be better offroad and up to 75mph on road.

For adventure touring/trail riding 790r makes 701/690 redundant IMHO....

I wouldn't touch a 790!

That footpeg issue is just plain idiotic on ktm's part.

Not to mention the price.

The performance is negligible against the 990 and certainly not enough to fork out that amount of money.

The footpeg assembly is bolted the the engine case.

Been more than one report of it cracking the engine case.
