yes, just like the MCN guy said. I did not pay attention to the road, so I can't say how it was, I should have stopped maybe; the next time it happens, I'll check. the strange thing is that i was not "fast as hell", I just opened the throttle but in a smooth way. Not scary but not a good feeling either. I had tried the duke 790 some months ago, and it is beautiful too. found that when the electronics kicks in to prevent anti-wheelie, it is maybe too abrupt, I was thinking "what the hell is happening? did i break anything" Then, since there is not much KTM assistance here, I opted for Yamaha (in general, for non-japanese bike, it is not easy to find good mechs where I live and since I'm not good at maintenance, this concerns me a lot). Very happy so far, anyway. For any questions, feel free to ask, I'm not the best biker out there but can provide feedback.Damn; I didn't like that last statement one bit. But could you please elaborate on how the road was? I heard that first on this Neevesy review video:Go to 5:10. But he said that only on bumpy roads, and I assumed fast as hell too. Maybe not??? Then he reviewed the competition starting at 8:00, and gave the SP 5*. But said the 890R had the best front end (and brakes). I'm really torn if the 890R is the better bike for aggressive cornering riders like me, even though it might be less reliable, and quite a bit more expensive (when fitted with tech pack and cruise).
At any rate, apparently nobody has this bike (other than like 2 lucky recipients in the west coast), and won't have it for a while, so not sure what I'll do, once I can buy the trailer I need (in about 2 months). I hope a proper comparison video pops up soon, so I can make a more educated decision, since I'll have to buy blindly (nobody offers test rides around here).
