2017 Honda Africa Twin vs. KTM 1090 Adventure R

3 posts in this topic

Hopefully they redesigned the electronics on the new 1090, I owned a POS 1190 and ktm had it longer than I did in its first 2 months of ownership, eventually they got it back. KTM builds some of the best dirt bikes ive ever seen but they need to stay out of the big adventure bike market until they can figure it out.

The newer, bigger KTM's past the 990 era have a lot more electronics in them to make them more streetable (to compete with BMW). Many of the other brands (like BMW) have had the benefit of developing their electronics packages across a broader range of products, such as their sport and sport touring bikes which has given them an edge.

KTM has been slower to the market with more sophisticated electronics packages.  When the RC8 was last out (I think in 2015), it didn't have all the high end electronic rider aids that its competition had.  There seems to be a learning curve going on.
