I took the KTM 890 Adventure R out for a test ride (road only) recently. I have test ridden the new Africa Twin and between the 2 I would take the AT over the 890 any day. The AT was a lot more comfortable for me. The 890 vibrated more and I found the wind was worse on it at +/- 100km/h. Not bad mouthing the 890, it is still a nice bit of gear. Just not for me. Now to find a Tenere 700 to test.
