That sounds like a winter upgrade coming along with the bark busters. Thanks for the information, I'll check them out.MCCruise has a unit for the 2016 and 2017 models as well. I was waiting to see if the 2019 would have one, and when I found out they would not picked up a 2018 Adventure Sport at a very good price point. So, if you want to add one to your non-throttle by wire, you can do it.
Not that much lighter. At most 20kg. DCT has much faster shifting than 990. The lighter tail-end of the KTM also makes it loose traction too quickly: I tend to sit much further back on wheel than my mate. Power means nothing if you can't get it down onto the ground. Keep in mind, we still get wheelspin at about 100km/h if we go hard. On the vid at around 45second mark, we're accelerating out of a corner from about 80km/h up and you can see what I mean.This should be in road reports but..
@Squilly CRF easier to control yes, but I'd be surprised to stay with a 990 on the loose stuff , even assuming same tires, the 990's a much lighter machine.
if i had a choice between 10-15 hp more and 10-15 kg less , I'd know what would be more important to me.
