    I’ve been buying street bikes since 1979 and I don’t see one bike in your lineup that remotely interests me. I’ll keep my 2008 Honda VTX 1800F with it’s 110,000 miles any day.

    The new V-Strom 650XT Adventure has my eye. I currently have a Triumph Tiger Explorer, but I’m feeling the need to downsize and move toward something more off-road capable. Don’t know if this iteration of the Wee-Strom is gonna fill that bill – especially compared to, say, the KTM 790 or the new Triumph 900?

      Hi Christopher!

      I’m not going to bash the Wee Strom or the new Tiger 900 as I haven’t ridden either bike and I know there are plenty of loyal fans out there of either machine.

      Comparing the new 790 Adventure S, R or the coming Rally model to either bike just isn’t apples to apples in my mind. The KTM is just so much better off road and the tech package on it is top shelf. In every comparison I’ve watched the reviewers almost feel embarrassed for comparing other bikes to the R model when it comes to off road.
      There are no bad bikes out there on the market. All of them are terrific at getting riders around, but for me the 790 makes it almost effortless. I’m finally getting around to writing my long term review of the 790 adventure S that I put 5500 miles on last year now and hope to publish soon. For me the 790 R is the bike of the year for 2019 and it will win again in 2020. When I ride it off road I often feel like I’m riding a 450 enduro because the center of gravity is so low on it and it feels about 100lbs lighter than it is. The only time it feels big is when I ride down very steep hills. Then it feels like what it is– a 450lb wet adventure bike.
      It’s just as good on the highway too. I’ve done long days where I’ve averaged 80mph on asphalt with no problem. The bike feels like a small sport bike when it has the right tires on it.
      The only bike that will dethrone this adv model will be the Husqvarna 901 Norden when it finally arrives in 2021 I believe.
      The only downside to the 790 is the price. The Wee Strom and in particular the Yamaha Tenere 700 are much less money to buy and will get the job done for anyone in reality. But if you want the thoroughbred racehorse that will wow you every chance it gets, look no further than the 790 Adventure.
      End rant! lol

            You’re right Alan, I keep forgetting the 21 model year comes out the year before.
