I think its impressive that KTM is almost just as fast yet is still a very capable
Where does BMW come into this supreme off-road equation :think:I think as DeathByMTS stated, it's amazing that Ducati came out with this bike 4 years ago. Same could be said for the Diavel for it's segment although there was always the VMax. They definitely set the expectations in the sport ADV segment for on-road capabilities. KTM/BMW still reign supreme in the off-road department.
They hold up under abuse. The BMW isn't the bike the KTM is in the dirt, but it is a reliable mount for going around the world. That's its calling card. KTMs have traditionally been stronger in the dirt but weaker on the road and have a rep (real or imagined) for being fussier. The 1190 may break the mold, but then again, it may just break.Where does BMW come into this supreme off-road equation :think:
That is true to a certain degree. Compared to the KTMs in general they don't hold a candle but it is the next best thing after all the ones listed in this comparison.Where does BMW come into this supreme off-road equation :think:
VMax would make a better drag bike.
