I saw an interesting comment on Facebook today from a new KTM 790 owner who also owned a Yamaha Super Tenere.

Basically his Super Tenere had done 198,000 km without any issues but his KTM 790 has done 2000 in 2 months has had to go back to the dealer twice in that time. If he was looking for a new bike now he’d buy the Tenere 700 over The KTM 790.
