Why not consider the 790 over the Versys 650 at these prices? It can easily do the kind of touring Versys can.

The VStrom is being offered at 0% financing, that is a good buy as well.

Reliability? Hearing some major complaints with the 790 Duke and complaints about no support / technical knowledge from the dealers.

What are you on? Pass some over

Nothing even comes close to the suspension on the Versys. What kind of touring are you talking about? Breakfast rides? That's all you can do with the 790 duke unless you do 3 hours of yoga a day.

That is a shame. I'm seriously tempted by the offer, but if there is minimal support and technical issues, it may not be worth indulging in.

Haha Chai and Gujju food bro. You know the door is always open!!
I figure the average human shouldn't be riding more than 500 (700?) kms in the plains and 280 in the mountains on a given day and do that over 7-10 hours with a brake every couple of hours at a minimum. Shouldn't the 790 be good enough for that? Maybe get a touring seat and a better windshield.
I find the Versys to be too top heavy for my liking. For and out and out tourer, the kind of thing you like doing, I've been very impressed with the Vstorm. A friend has one that he's been doing a lot of highways and back country on and he grows to appreciate it more with every passing day. I've been very, very impressed with what it has to offer.

You should go out and do 700 kms.on the trot on our beloved highways on a street naked and then come back here and post. And do that consecutive for three days in a row (like a bangalore delhi trip).

You will then appreciate what the versys and how you rightly said what the vstrom offers.

A bike is more than just a touring seat and a windshield. There are things like ergos, gearing, sprockets, fuel range, fairing based weather protection (makes an insane difference, trust me).

Btw i am not an out and out tourer. I hate the national highways. I much prefer back country roads and trail exploration when on a long drawn trip. As much off the NH as possible.

Yeah send those magic theplas over lol!

Not sure how a daily dose of 700 klicks would pan out. I don't have it in me to do more than 500 a day on a bike, especially over several days. In any case, I'd prefer to do cross country in my non-existent BMW or my trusty decade old Laura. It just feels that the 790 is the best suited naked for touring in India given it's moto roots and KTM service network. Although if there are major reliability and training issues, that is somewhat negated.

Just Theplas don't work. Its got to be the full monty with Dhoklas, Chaat etc. For that, you gots to come over!

Called one of the KTM dealership Owners in Gujarat from whom I got the 390. He said he doesn't have any 790's in stock and will check if he can get me the bike and if yes - at what price

Its unfortunate the 790 doesn't have bluetooth compatibility with the dashboard while my 390 does. I will miss the ability to pick up calls and change songs while on multi state rides

Found one. If I make up my mind this weekend, Will be moving quick on Monday to get the booking across and the funds transferred. The KTM Powerpart for Bluetooth connectivity (similar to the 390) is priced at around 12k rupees.

Wow , a friend was casually inquiring about this in Mumbai but no luck. What's the onroad price you are offered if you don't mind sharing?

As for as i know the last Z650 was sold by rideventure march 2nd week itself. There was one TD vehicle for sale though (Green Z650, 2018 model with around 6K odo + 30K worth accessaries + 2 Years Warranty + Fresh Service) they quoted around 5.6L on March 18th. He was asking me to make quick decision as the BS4 deadline was nearing.

I do have my own reservations about a TD vehicle so didn't bite it, and then covid-19 happened. I don't think they would could have sold.

Re: The "NEW" Superbikes & Imports Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Dea

A TD vehicle makes sense buying only if you get a really good deal. 5.6l doesn't seem that good a deal. The only good thing is you will be the first owner. Kawasaki bikes are generally very reliable and the TD bike I rode was well maintained but the thought of hundreds of people having ridden your bike feels wierd IMO
